Hunter Original Short Gloss

Hunter is a beloved brand for lots of reasons, and we like the Hunter Original Short Gloss boots for working and playing outside on rainy days. They have a multilayer cushioned sponge insole for comfort, and a quick dry woven nylon lining. The short height makes them easy to slip on, but still keeps your hems and feet dry in wet weather conditions. They’re also available in bright yellow if you want a shot of spring sunshine on your feet!

Klogs Footwear Naples

The priciest slip-on gardening shoes on our list are also the most beloved. Klogs Footwear Naples are comparable to the support of a Dansko clog, but with the comfort of a Croc. That’s a hard combination to find! And, Klogs are made in the USA. The butterfly print is very garden appropriate.

Crocs Classic Clog

Crocs are a classic. They’re one of the most affordable, versatile and easy to clean slip-on gardening shoes available. Wear them with the heel strap for extra support, or just slip them on and go to the garden. Getting peat moss and compost on your shoes is no big deal with a pair of rubber Crocs, just hose ’em off. Gardeners should get them in green!
