There is a difference between garden shoes and gardening shoes. Garden shoes are usually made from plastic and come in different colors and styles. A pair of garden shoes looks great on the blossom sniffer, leaf fondler, or rose snipper. They are not designed for adverse weather conditions, weeds, and mud. Gardening shoes, on the other hand, are comfortable and functional. You can wear them the whole day without worrying about weeds, cramped toes, and blisters. Gardening shoes are ideal for working outdoors.
Opt for shoes with reinforced toes and solid soles such as hiking shoes and rubber boots. Other types of garden shoes include garden clogs, slip-ons, and half boots. Keep in mind that while half boots are functional and comfortable on the foot, they track in mud. Rubber boots are functional and safe, but they are not very comfortable. Hiking shoes are comfortable if you wear them with the right socks. The problem is that they track in mud and attract weeds. Slip-ons are functional, have hard soles, and are great for digging. They are comfortable, and you can wear them the whole day. If you opt for garden clogs, watch your ankles and legs for insect bites.
