A Seattle gardening essential

Normalcy has returned to Seattle.

We had a very long run of days without any rain.

But that trend has come to an end.

We are back to our usual rainy weather, but there is still a lot to be done in the garden.

What is a Seattle Gardener to do?

Buy a pair of Sloggers, that’s what!

Sloggers has been making gardening boots in the U.S. for more than 64 years.  They produce a bunch of great styles.  You can get Sloggers rain boots,

Sloggers rain shoes,

or Sloggers classic clogs.

For the fellas, Sloggers offers more sedate garden footwear.  I think the Sloggers Garden Sandal Slide Navy is very cool.

Regardless what Sloggers style you buy, you will enjoy years of wear with these durable boots and clogs that don’t cost much more than the footwear made in the Middle Kingdom.  But they have a wealth of additional benefits versus shoes made by our “friends” to the east.  First, Sloggers are made by members of our extended American family working and living in Gardena, CA.  When these American family members get paid, they spend their paychecks in their communities, which helps other members of our extended American family.  Second, Sloggers are made in the U.S., a country that actually enforces environmental and workplace safety laws.  Does Chinese drywall ring a bell?  Third, who doesn’t want a pair of gardening boots with a tulip design?

So when you need to pick up some new gardening footwear, you don’t need to look any farther than Sloggers.

Now get shopping!
