The blossom is appearing on the trees, the days are getting longer and daffodils are popping up, it can only mean one thing... Spring is almost here! 

With the dark days of Winter starting to retreat we're getting excited here at Lakeland Active HQ because it's nearly time to get back into our gardens! If you (like us!) have already started planning your flower beds and sorting the garden shed (Check out our Spring Gardening Guide for our top gardening tips!), you might also be wondering whether 2024 is the right time to replace your old and battered gardening footwear.

Dry and comfortable feet is an absolute essential if you're going to spend hours in the garden, so take a look through our top 5 best selling gardening shoes, boots, and clogs for men and women. Loved and trusted by gardeners all over the UK!

Whether you're aiming for your garden to look like the cover of Gardeners' World, you're always heading down to your allotment or you just love keeping your outdoor space tidy - we’ve got a range of footwear to suit your activity. 

Planting, sowing, weeding and watering can get messy (and not to mention muddy!) So, it’s important to find a pair of gardening shoes that can keep you dry, comfortable and as dirt-free as possible.

Our Appleby Backless Gardening Clogs and Grasmere Muck Garden Shoes are equally great choices if you’re out tending to a vegetable patch, pulling weeds or mowing the lawn. With a 100% waterproof outer and multidirectional outsole ridges, our Appleby and Grasmere shoes are a comfortable backdoor staple and go-to choice for many gardeners. The Grasmere muck shoes with their elasticated top are perfect for mucky conditions and keeping out stones, there’s no way anything is sneaking through into your socks!

For tougher gardening tasks, you’ll want boots ready to withstand tough terrain. Our Rydal Neoprene Wellington Boots are a reliable and sturdy choice featuring a steel-reinforced sole ideal for digging. Another contender is our Hayton Multipurpose Ankle Boots, their ultra versatile design includes luxurious memory foam insoles and pull tabs to get them on and off easily. A shorter style of boot, you can wear the Hayton boots for gardening activities all-year-round. 

If you’re looking for a super-lightweight option for visiting the chickens, taking out the bins or watering the plants, we’d recommend our Dockray Garden Clogs. Available with or without a thermal lining (we offer both styles), these clogs are perfect for keeping grip on wet grass and protecting your feet from the elements. Our Lorton Garden & Work Clogs are another excellent lightweight choice - they've even been named as best men's garden clogs overall and best women's garden clogs for everyday use!
