Gardening is a female dominated hobby and industry. The majority of gardeners are women. Our plants, tools, pots, and accessories are designed--and marketed--to appeal to women. As a male gardener this doesn’t usually bother me--I’ve made peace with this over the years.
I’m more likely to garden in flip-flops and old sneakers than in dedicated garden shoes. But that didn’t stop me from feeling a bit of jealously when I came across the shoe and boot line by BOGS and the Independent Garden Center Show.
If you’re looking for gardening shoes and boots that reflect your quirky gardening personality check out this line of footwear. The rubber shoes and boots are vegan and made from a durable rubber to protect your feet and block out the elements. The company also makes a children’s line that is as decorative and a more utilitarian agricultural line for men.
