The Best Shoes To Wear When Gardening

It’s easy to throw on an old pair of shoes as your gardening shoes, however they usually tend not to be the most comfortable or easy to clean. Having a designated pair of gardening shoes that you can easily slip on on your way out to the garden is really important. From pottering around and bringing in the washing, to digging and planting, there are shoes for all tasks!

There’s nothing worse than ruining your favourite pair of shoes because you’ve ended up getting carried away with the gardening. It’s important to have a good quality pair of gardening shoes that you can slip on when tasks arise. Whether you’ve decided to start growing your own veg, or planning to landscape the garden, Lunar’s shoes can help you put your best gardening foot forward.

What You Need To Consider

Finding a good pair of gardening shoes can sometimes prove a challenge. You want to avoid having to fuss with laces and zips, making shoes that you can easily slip on and off the best option. The team at Lunar have pulled together a few things that you should consider when picking out your perfect pair of shoes for the garden:

The Garden Surface

Different shoes are better for different surfaces. Depending on the gardening task you have at hand, and the garden surface you’ll be working on, you’ll need to pick shoes that offer comfort and support for whatever task is at hand. If you’re working in mud or slippy grass you’ll need shoes that offer extra grip.

What Gardening Jobs Do You Have Planned and How Long Will They Take?

When deciding which gardening shoes to pick it’s beneficial to consider which gardening jobs you have planned and how long they will take. If you just have a few small gardening tasks to complete that won’t take long, you might not need to worry too much about it compared to bigger jobs that will take hours.

Lighter jobs won’t require your shoes to provide much protection and may not need to be waterproof, whereas for more hands-on gardening jobs you’ll need more robust and waterproof gardening shoes.

Avoiding Sore Feet and Injury 

You don’t want your gardening jobs to leave you with sore feet or even worse – injured! When picking your shoes for the garden you need good quality shoes that offer support and comfort for the duration. If your gardening includes more heavy work make sure you have shoes with a good grip and protection.
