Getting geared-up for gardening is half the fun. And what better way than with a super-comfortable pair of shoes built specifically for dirty work? 

UGG-like in their comfort level, Bogs come with the additional not-exactly-sexy, but relevant features of odor control, waterproofing, moisture-wicking and other essentials of their activity-centric job description. The family-run, Portland, Oregon-based Bogs brand clearly understands its audience of gardening and homesteading fans looking for a cute and functional shoe.  The Bogs website features some hip and trendy ambassadors: ranchers, bloggers and beer brewers all serve as representatives of the brand.

In the cuteness department, the new garden line featuring Bogs decorated with mushrooms, tomatoes and lemon slices or cheerful daisies are about as adorable as you can get.

My garden-themed Bogs tended to take some getting used to: I did a not especially graceful butt-plant while trellising my tomatoes, because I wasn’t used to the more pliable sides of the shoe. But the sheer comfort of the Bogs made up for it: the fact that you can hose or wipe them off after use is a definite improvement on the sneakers I normally wear, whose mud-caked treads mean they are ostracized to the garage after use.

I wore my Bogs with tennis socks, but for those who choose to go commando, the handy fabric pulls on the end allow you to slip these babies off easily.
