Well, I don’t know about you, but when it comes to comfort in the garden, I find this to be important. Why, you ask. Simple. If you’re not comfortable as you work in the garden, be it planting, weeding, watering, etc., then you’re less likely to do it.
Being comfortable is more than dressing appropriately. We all know that if you’re wearing a sweater in summer, you’re going to get too hot. That’s a given! But that being said, shoes play a significant role in gardening attire, and just like happy soil means happy plants in the garden, happy feet means a happy gardener ready and willing to tackle any task at hand.
And that’s where my comfy Jollys Fashion shoes come in. These gardening shoes, which are available in both an open-heeled clog and closed-heeled shoe, are absolutely wondrous! I can literally wear them anywhere – not just the garden – and I do. That’s how comfortable they are. I barely notice they’re even on sometimes. And if you’re out in the garden and need to run inside for a quick second, they’re easy to slip off and back on again. No laces or buckles to worry with.
Jollys, I have come to learn, are the original garden shoe – before the Crocs, Sloggers, etc. In fact, these high-quality shoes have been made in Germany for more than 40 years. Jollys Fashion shoes are not only light and flexible (with removable orthopedic insoles for even more comfort), but also waterproof and nearly indestructible, so it’s fine if you get them wet or muddy. It won’t hurt them a bit and you can wash them off after you’re done. They even dry quickly. Wear them with socks or without – it doesn’t matter. They feel good either way and will keep your feet cool in the summer and warm and dry in cold weather too. I don’t know how they do it, but they do!
So if comfort in the garden is as important to you as it is me, check out the variety of garden clogs and shoes by Jollys. Oh, and they have accessories too (sorry, not matching belts or hair bows). Their Jollys knee cushion truly makes those “kneeling projects easier and more comfortable.” Again, it’s all about being comfortable while tending the garden. If you’re anything like me, with weeds being the bane my existence, than you likely bend or kneel a lot in the garden.
Can you say backbreaking? Not to mention it can be hard on the old knees and not very good for your clothing or bare skin. I mean, who really wants to kneel in wet dirt (easiest way to pull weeds, by the way)? Both Jollys shoes and knee cushions come in handy here. Again, as with my clogs, the cushion can be easily cleaned and cradles my knees so I’m able to get all my endless weeding tasks accomplished without any issue.
So there you have it – my take on garden comfort and why you should try Jollys shoes and knee cushions for yourself.
