Brand new shoes. I wore them to mow the grass.
And I didn’t even hear voices in my head telling me not to do it. I did it on purpose.
How else was I going to decide if I loved the Jollys Fashion Garden Shoes as much as I love my Jollys Classic Garden Shoes?
I am a long time fan of Jollys garden shoes.
I got my first pair of Jollys Classic Garden Shoes, upper left corner, about fifteen years ago, long before anyone ever thought about those plastic clogs with holes in them that start with a “C”. Sure, people made fun of them, just a little bit, but I didn’t care. They were, and are, comfortable, easy to slip on and off for quick trips or long trips out to the garden, and easy to clean. This first pair is nearly ready for retirement, having finally worn through a bit on the bottom. I think I’ll plant something in them.
I got the second pair, upper right corner, about ten years ago. They are always at the front door, ready to slip on as I head out to grab the paper in the morning or step out to do some watering. They are just as comfortable as the first pair. Did I mention the plaid insoles are removable, making it easy to remove them so you can clean the shoes with just soap and water?
I got the third pair, lower left corner, about five years ago. They live by the back door and are on my feet when I head out to the vegetable garden on a bright sunny morning, or just go out to walk around a bit in the evening. By the way, only the Jollys have plaid insoles. I can spot a pair of them a mile away just by seeing the insole.
Which brings me to the fourth pair, the Jollys Fashion Garden Shoes, lower right corner, sent to me by the people at www.gardenclogs.com to try out.
Turns out, that yes, I do like them as well as I like my “classics”. I mowed the lawn in them and they did great. They have a little extra tread on the bottom, which adds stability when walking through wet grass. I think they’ll be what I wear when I mow the grass from here on out.
I do like my Jollys garden shoes.
