Guide Review - Bogs Boots for Container Gardening
I've got to tell you that there is something very cool looking about Bogs boots. I've seen them around town and they just look great. It may sound slightly bizarre, when talking about muck boots, but you could even call them sexy (ok, I live in the sticks, so maybe my idea of sexy isn't really mainstream), but....These boots come in fun patterns and even the plain ones have a great look.
So, first I fell for their looks and then I tried them on. Ooh la la. I was incredibly impressed by how comfortable they are - almost bouncy - like a car with really good springs. The sole is a thick and cushion-y rubber and the upper part of the boot is made of a stretchy neoprene. In fact, to be honest, they are so comfortable that sometimes I wear them inside instead of slippers.
Another great thing about Bogs, which is different from most rubber boots, is that even though they are completely waterproof, they have a breathable liner so your feet don't suffocate then sweat and freeze.
Bogs wear like iron and I'm sure I will be happily container gardening in them for years.
