12 Gardening Shoes for Women Gardeners

A pair of shoes you only use for gardening is a good investment. Have you ever stained that cute pair of comfortable shoes just because you got the urge to garden? I sure have. Right now, I’m just window shopping online but want to share some gardening shoes with you, from clogs to rainboots and the always classic Chelsea boot.

An old pair of sneakers is always an option, but I prefer shoes that are a bit more substantial, protectant, and water-resistant because I was a professional gardener for so many years. Gardening can be a workout, and your shoes are the foundation. Bottom line: the best gardening shoes are the ones you’ll reach for again and again!
