Cutting hedges, pulling weeds, planting flowers, watering the lawn: garden work requires a lot both from you and from your shoes. And a good garden clog can keep up with you. It doesn't just repel mud and water – it also boasts additional comfort that reduces the strain on the feet, joints and legs.
What Are the Benefits of a Garden Clog?
What does the garden clog have that other shoes don't? As opposed to an athletic shoe or a robust boot, it is waterproof and dirt-repellent. Rubber boots also have these qualities, but they aren't nearly as comfortable as clogs. Another benefit of the plastic slipper: They are open at the back, which makes them easy to slip on and off. The clog is closed at the front, however, which protects your toes.
What Defines a Good Garden Clog?
Not every clog is the same, and for the sake of your feet, you should put an emphasis on quality. The garden clogs from BIRKENSTOCK score points with the following details:
- Depending on the model, a flat or raised heel section gives your foot all-around protection and good support.
- The certified PU sole (polyurethane) with a tread makes garden clogs slip resistant.
- BIRKENSTOCK garden clogs have an anatomically-shaped footbed (made, for example, from cork and cork latex). As a result, you don't have to give up the comfort you've come to expect
- when working in the garden.
- The sole can be removed, washed, and disinfected, which allows you to clean it thoroughly. This means BIRKENSTOCK garden clogs win on both hygiene and durability.
What Types of Garden Clogs Are Available from BIRKENSTOCK?
All BIRKENSTOCK garden clogs are composed of sturdy, easy-care polyurethane (PU) and can be washed up to 80 degrees Celsius. The footbed can be removed and, depending on the model and material, can be washed at 30 degrees Celsius (cork-latex footbed) to 60 degrees Celsius (polyurethane footbed). The A640 steel toe clog provides toes with extra protection as a certified security toe. A camouflage design, a floral print, and neon colors make the functional Super-Birki model in a lovely design fashionable.
