Gardening Boots

Hi, I’m  looking for recommendations for gardening boots. I want some slip-on, waterproof, ankle height boots size 6. Not fussed about colurs. Have been searching for ages & get put off by reviews!
Thanks in advance for help.


  • SydRoySydRoy Posts: 167'll probably get as many recommendations as there are stars in the sky. 
    All I can do is suggest what I wear which is a pair of Dickies steel toe cap slip on ankle boots. They're comfy, well worn in and have lasted quite a while.
    Try Screwfix or Toolstation, they have quite a good range. (You didn't say if it's a men's or ladies size 6).
    Even my local Asda has a small range of work boots- good enough for pottering around the garden I would have thought.
  • Hmm, yes, thought of those. Are they flexible with steel toe cap ( thinking of when foot is bent ) Will be wearing most days, more than just pottering. Need good pair of sturdy boots. Local builder friend suggested them.

    Yes, you sort of forget the steel toe cap is there to be honest. I have some good quality insoles in them to soak up moisture and keep my feet warm plus hard wearing "work socks".
  • Thanks for your help.

    If you need an alternative, I find Tooled-Up of Enfield have always produced an excellent range of all products, including clothing and footwear, with a good quick delivery record too.
