Bogs Gardening Shoes: Waterproof and Stink-Free

by Genevieve on June 4, 2012

Post image for Bogs Gardening Shoes: Waterproof and Stink-Free

I don’t do many clothing reviews here on North Coast Gardening because most clothes made specifically for gardening are either not my style (I only like floral when it’s thorny and goth), or the manufacturers are so busy thinking about the stereotype of a Lady Gardener that they completely miss out on creating a product that actually functions, you know, in the dirt. When you’re gardening.

So when I got the email from Bogs asking if they could send me a pair of their gardening shoes to test out, I looked at their site with suspicion, even though I’d heard good things about their brand. Was this another veiled attempt to cover me in pink-and-yellow flowers and get photographic evidence of such?

I shouldn’t have worried. These are functional, comfortable shoes that fit beautifully and really perform in the garden. They sent me the Classic Short Bogs, and I was delighted to find they go perfectly with all of my clothes (yep, they’re black!).

Bogs gardening boots (4)

I usually wear Merrell’s mocs in the garden, but I have had issues in the past with them leaking. It rains here a lot, and even summer mornings are very dewy. There’s little more uncomfortable than getting your feet wet in the first hour of work and then having to suck it up and keep working all day anyway. Pruney toes = unhappy Gen.

Yet I had tried other types of waterproof gardening boot in the past and found them heavy, inflexible, and not breathable, so my feet ended up sore and sweaty at the end of the day.

When I tried on the Bogs I was surprised at how much I liked them right away. The neoprene-like fabric at the top is so flexible that I can slip into my Bogs while standing, and the handles are great if I get them so muddy that I want to rinse them off afterward – they’re easy to carry over to the hose for a quick scrub.

And they are totally, indisputably waterproof. I’ve gardened in the rain, in the mud, I’ve even dipped my feet into the pond to see if the rubbery outside bits would leak.

Bogs gardening boots (2)Another thing I like is the way the soles don’t pick up mud. Bogs calls them self-cleaning, and that’s pretty accurate. I step in a lot of muddy clumps, but because the bottoms of the shoes have just a subtle tread, soil doesn’t get stuck in there much. When it does, it tends to come off when I walk around a bit. I’ve had other types of shoe that piled up mud until it felt like I was wearing showshoes.

Then, they seem to really breathe! I don’t understand how they can have such a rubbery coating and yet my feet never feel hot or icky, but they’ve got some magic going on there. Plus, the insole is anti-microbial, so they have some anti-stink protection going on.

But you want to know what surprised me the most? I even like their flowered ones! This one’s got a ghostly-chic floral going, the aqua-chartreuse thing is totally working for me here, and this purple one is, well – it’s purple! Need I say more?

Want to get geared out in some Classic Short Bogs of your very own? Bogs has kindly offered to send a pair to one lucky reader in their choice of size. While I tested the women’s version for obvious reasons, they also have a men’s version in case one of you lucky guys is the winner.

Just leave a comment for your chance to win (US lower 48 states only). I’ll pull a winner on Monday, June 11th. Good luck! Krista has won! Congrats, Krista!

Id love to try these out. I like the height on the pair you tried and the handles look like they’d be super handy. I need to stop gardening in flip flops.

Are they squirrel proof? I’m left with one garden clog after the squirrels decided to chew up one to refurbish their nest. If I am the lucky winner of this giveaway, I promise not to leave them outside.

I don’t have any dedicated gardening shoes yet and go back-and-forth between two old TOMS classics so as not to totally muck either of them up. I’ve been holding for something that looked worth my time- these look perfect!! I love the height, the handles, and the option for not-super-bright colors.

Frankly, I’ve needed gardening shoes for about 5 years, now. Not a big shopper.

Husband has almost begged (as I tend to borrow his shoes, as well as use ones I own, which are NOT garden-appropriate). And I usually garden in running shoes, which renders my feet VERY dirty and frequently soggy. =)

So, I would LOVE to enter the shoe-grabbing fray! =)

And, tho’ I am female, I’d bet the men’s size 10 would be better than the women’s equivalent, plus that allows for bulky wool sock wearing.

If you need my real name, you can fire an email to the address above, and I’ll fling it atcha.

Thanks for the opportunity, and now I’m going to bookmark that web site (in the incredibly slim chance I don’t win)!

I lived in my high turquoise bogs all winter long. Yesterday I was debating just how well they would go with my shorts. The answer is NOT at all, so I NEED to get a pair of these shorter bogs.
I wear mine to plant trees (they work well with shovels) and then water the roots in without worrying about getting my own feet sopping wet, to feed the cows without worrying about what I’m stepping in, gathering eggs sans the same worry, starting up the irrigation pump because they have just enough traction to prevent me from sliding into the pond, filling troughs because sloshes don’t matter… the list goes on.

I usually wear my Keen boots for my day job, but even with their awesome design, they get wet in our weather. I love my Muck Boots for tromping around in the chicken yard or garden here, but they’re too heavy for my day work. The handles on those Bogs look awesome, and self-cleaning?

Marykate June 4, 2012 at 11:16 am

ME! OH! ME! PICK ME!!!
Below, please find a list of my qualifications for the position of Bog Winner:

1) I have similar issues with fluffy floral lady gardener clothing- (I have yet to find the kind of thorns and death garden gear you long for, even in San Francisco)

2) Been on an unrequited eons length quest for waterproof-yet-light-and-muck-resistant-but-fetching footwear-

3) Being flat-assed broke-

4) Being an urban open space reclaiming/protecting kinda gardener, which means;

5) I need, um, versatile footwear that I can both run in, and appear street legal in-

6) Having a great love of all things North Coast- (Lost Coast!)

7) Promise to share the news of these cunning little shoes with the world at every opportunity, bringing to the masses the Good Word of the True Shoes- Bogs!

8) I’ll even write the story of how I got them in some lurid color of nail polish on the soles, and balance gracefully on one foot, then the other until curious potential Bog wearers are done reading-

9) Wear them to occasions not normally requiring waterproof, muck-resistant, self- cleaning, no-stink footwear, such as the gala opening of the Opera Season-
- (should I receive an invitation)

10) And finely, I’ll do your chores for a week.

Very Truly Yours,
Marykate Connor

I love the short ones. As much as I love my slip-on/clog thingies, I still get dirt in there. What’s WORSE, if I don’t wear socks, I get shoe farts – both tiresome and embarrassing. I’m with Cocoa, even if I didn’t garden, I’d wear them just because Humboldt summers require such a thing.

We moved to the PNW last year from Florida. I’ve been looking for something sturdy to wear around my new, mossy, overgrown yard. Thanks!

This is perfect timing – my Muck boots just split after 6 years of good hard working. I couldn’t help but smile when I saw you have Merrell’s mocs too, I have a pair that have to be close to 7 or 8 years old now and they’re still going strong.
What I am really liking about the Bogs is the handle, how smart is that!? I’m a size 7 and I love the Ghostly Floral. ~ Thanks!
P.S. – your cat looks just like mine :)

You’re right- there is nothing worse than getting your feet wet in the morning and having them stay wet all day! I’d love to try these.

Married gardener seeking dry boot that I can remove without enlisting another family member. Easy on/easy off required. Not too hot.

I’ve always wondered if these were truly stink-proof! Thanks for the review!

These are very pretty gardening boots! Usually they are a little ugly and huge! I would love a pair, and as I saw at the bogs site their price is very reasonable!
Thank you :)

I love, love, love Bogs . I already had a pair. They are true to size and keep your feet warm without wearing thick bulky socks . I loved them so much I bought these for my mom and I also bought my Dad a pair. They Both love them. My 6 year old also got a new pair and they are his favorite. They are worth the price and Great quality!

Living near Portland, Oregon, where the winter rains last for months, I absolutely love these boots. They are 100% waterproof and very comfortable. Having worn my first pair out (size 7), I ordered a new pair in the same size. The sizing seems to have changed as they were too small and I had to return them for the next larger size. Wasn’t too excited about the additional charge for return shipping so be careful when selecting a size.

I have never had a pair of real life gardening shoes so have been researching to buy a pair.
I definately love your style of boot as I want some that I can slip on and off not bend downto pull on and wash mud off easilyand they look JUST THE JOB.
