Last fall, I posted about all the footwear I have for gardening and how one of my two pairs of garden clogs was finally wearing through, after nearly 15 years of use, but I could not find a replacement pair. I received some helpful comments (and some funny ones, too) on my original post but even after Googling “garden clogs” and looking at many different web sites, I just couldn’t find the exact ones I wanted. I wanted the brand that has the plaid insert!
Then on Sunday, I searched again. Eureka! I found a source for my clogs. I can not believe the url was www.gardenclogs.com. I am not kidding, that is the url. The brand is Jollys and they are made in Germany. My “clog” of choice is actually their Classic Garden Shoe. I am so happy to have found a source for these! Yes, I immediately ordered a new pair to replace my original pair. Guess what color I ordered?
By the way, I was reminded to try to search again for these “gardening necessities” because the day before, a friend who laughs at my garden clogs every time she sees them, said that now that everyone is wearing Crocs, my garden clogs don’t seem so dorky. Ha! I knew it! I was just ahead of everyone fashion-wise!
And to think I was always afraid that one day in may haste to get somewhere, I would slip on the garden clogs, which are always by the front door ready to go, instead of other shoes, and find myself out in public in my clogs. But now? I am no longer afraid. I’m styling!
