boots made for lawn & garden

I read in the weekend paper about a new boot made by lawngrips with a no feel steel toe and soccer shoe design. Does anyone have a pair?

Best boots ever

Yes, Iam wearing them as i type this and they feel great. I don't know if you have ever worn a soccer shoe or not but they are way more comfortable. Highly recommended.

I have two pairs of lawn grips, I have had the one pair all year, usually go through one or two pairs of boots while cutting, the lawngrips are still in good shape, might even go two years with them. I dig with them too, steel toed and have heald up real good. Extremly comfortable, feels like your wearing slippers all day.

i bought a pair at the beginning of the season and agree that they are one of the most comfortable lawn shoes i have owned. Also the waterproof is second to none. I was in standing water and my socks did not get wet. The only thing i do not like is the soles of the shoes wear to quickly. I think they should last more than one season. Remember i am in Maine and the season is not as long here.

i got almost one year out the soles of mine, and most of my walking is an urban environment...

I do like the tread design, never once did my wife yell at me tracking stuff into the house....

I have had mine for both the spring and fall aeration season. I love them. I wear them to cut my own lawn. They are comfortable. I wear them when I place flyers in neighborhoods, no wet feet and they are great to wear all day.
