Spring is in the air and you can already hear the gentle hum of lawnmowers as they creak out from sheds across the nation. When the months start warming up it’s a good time to get out into your garden and survey any damage from winter. However, you don’t want to ruin a perfectly good pair of shoes, so here are our suggestions for eight of the best women’s gardening shoes and clogs:
You can spend a fortune on well-known brands, or you can buy this pair from Town & Country. Easy to slip on, they are waterproof, slip-resistant and you can remove the inner liner and wash it. Really impressed with these.
We are a huge fan of Hunter wellies on Shoppersbase so we were thrilled to put these gardening clogs to the test. Really comfortable with no chafing, these clogs are made from natural rubber and are weatherproof. They feature the oak leaf emblem of the National Trust. We liked the support from the clogs too.
Bright and colourful, this pair of low wellie boots from Joules are a simple way of leaving the house and getting on with the gardening. Just slip them on then pull the wellie tab to secure them. They are waterproof with tread on the sole which helps prevent slipping.
These gardening boots have RHS approval. They are 100% waterproof and easy to slip on and off thanks to the ankle tab. They feature a breathable lining and a flexible rubber sole which is treaded for high traction.
These gardening shoes feature pretty Dorset daisies but they have loads of different designs. They are really easy to leave by the back door and slip on when you want to nip outside. They are lightweight and comfortable and have a nice wide fitting. You can also remove the insoles and pop them in the wash.
Love or hate Crocs, these short boots are perfect for gardening. They feature pull-on holes either side of the boot and are light and comfy. There’s a textured sole for added traction.
If you just want something cheap to stick on so you don’t ruin your slippers every time you take the bins out, this pair from Wilko will last for ages. Nothing fancy about them, just practical. Waterproof and washable and available in loads of sizes.
These steel-capped shoes are ideal for the really heavy-duty kind of gardening that needs more protection for your feet. They are perfect for farms where people use metal tools such as hoes and forks. The exterior is made from leather which is stretched over the wooden shoe. It also features a rubber sole for traction.
