With the wet weather upon us in some parts of the country, I have noticed a lot more boots and clogs making their way to new homes.
So, let’s talk about footwear.
The most common questions I get asked are around sizing.
It makes it easy if you have owned a pair of our footwear before and know your size… but what if you haven’t? To help with this, we do have a sizing chart (This link can also be found at the bottom of each page of our website).
What if you are in between sizes? Well, what we suggest is to go up a size…unless you want to chop some toes off, which we are guessing you don’t want to do! 🙂
With most of our footwear you are able to insert an extra insole under the existing one, which knocks them down half a size. You can pick up insoles from any supermarket or request a pair from us…we usually have some floating around the office.
But what if I have a wide foot?!
Then there are the questions about suitability. Ask yourself, what will I be using my footwear for?
Finding Footwear To Fit Your Needs
Clogs are great for slipping on and off with ease: No bending over… just pop your foot straight in! The lower backs in them allows you to do this. However, if you like a bit more support in the back, then clogs might not be for you. Also, because of the lower back in clogs, if you are using them in the garden and there is a bit of dirt around, then your feet are more inclined to get grubby.
Splash shoes have a higher back in them and are easy to slip on and off as well. I have a pair by the back door and they get used everyday! Below are a previous splash shoe pattern that we no longer stock, however we do have some gorgeous new patterns – check them out.
Both the clogs and splash shoes are great not only for wearing in the garden but everyday activities as well – especially when the weather is wet. We have also been told that they are great to wear in a mosaic studio!
And because of the cushioned insole in the Slogger Premium Clog and splash shoe they are also comfy to wear.
But what if I want something that I can do heavy duty tasks in?
The scrub and slush boots might be more your thing. Being a mid calf boot you get the height…so no dirt is getting into these babies! However, if you did want an ankle-type boot you can fold the top over because it’s made out of neoprene (wetsuit material). A lot of you also have commented on the comfort factor as well… we call the scrub boots the Rolls Royce of waterproof footwear!
Slogger Splash Boots have been popular lately. New Chicken Print and Flower Power styles have been walking out the door!
These are just some suggestions that may help you in making a decision about what footwear you need. If you have any additional questions, we are more than happy to help. You can either email or give us a call at 1800 726 687.
