Sloggin' On The Farm

Now that Spring is here, you probably want to trade in your knee-high muck boots for something else.   I've always been a big fan of Sloggers, unless it's been raining for days and I'm wading mud puddles.   These shoes are not only comfortable, but they are easy on/easy off and have decent support.   We have a dowel shoe rack mounted on the wall just outside of the back door that hubby made a few years ago and we keep all of our garden, barn and coop shoes there.

These shoes last quite a few seasons and are reasonably priced for a decent working shoe (as long as the dogs don't get to them -- then they become pricey chew-toys).   One of the major selling points for me is the "Made in the USA" label.  I also keep a second pair in my car for when I visit my cousin to prevent any cross-contamination from my farm to her farm, or vice-versa.  Our livestock/flock health is a major concern even though we both have extremely healthy animals.  It's always better to be safe than sorry.

Made in the USA, the slip-on Sloggers Women's Waterproof Comfort Shoe is perfect for working in the garden or running an errand on a rainy day. They are easy to slip on and off and are a breeze to hose off, so you can leave the "Great Outdoors" where it belongs - outside!
  • Plush "All Day Comfort" insoles
  • Deep lug tread for trekking in water or mud, or mucking out a stall
  • Made from 100% recyclable material and the soles contain up to 90% recycled material
  • Sloggers are a "true fit" - meaning that for most people the fit is true to size
  • Half sizes or wider widths should size up
  • Made in the USA
If you're looking for a good, hard-working shoe for the farm, check these out.   If you have a different shoe that works well for your farm needs, share about them in the comments below.
