Slogger Boots Review

I recently purchased a pair of Slogger Boots to wear around in my yard. I knew I wanted to get a pair that were overall comfy since we spend a lot of time outside. I was going to get a "cheap" pair from my local farm store. The more I researched though, the more that I learned a LOT of people recommend the "Sloggers" brand.

So here it is... my review on the yellow chicken boots by Slogger.

I purchased these through Amazon, but you can probably find them other places, as well as other designs too. I purchased these boots myself, and I am NOT receiving any compensation for my review. (Although that would be really nice... ;-))

Why did I choose Slogger?
So first off, I went to my local feed store, Sparr Building and Farm Supply, because they are a Slogger dealer. I heard in my homesteading group that these are THE BEST garden/work boots ever. I went and tried on a pair there. I would have bought my pair from them, but I didn't like their patterns in stock.

How do they fit?
I wear a 7.5/8 in regular street shoes and a 7.5 in Ariat boots. I choose the size 8s to try on first. They fit great. Relatively easy to slide on and off and they didn't slop around when I was wearing them. However, because they are rubber I anticipated my feet to sweat and probably swell some during the summer months. I grabbed a size 9 next, and while they were a little big, I knew they would be easy to take on and off when my feet were hot. So I decided to find a pair of 9s that I liked.

Are they hot?
Yes and No. They are rubber and I live in Florida... so everything is hot. But I will say that they are not nearly as bad as I thought they would be. The rubber is pretty thin, and I did pick the yellow print because it was "light."

Water-proof?
Absolutely! Unless you accidentally turn the hose on with it pointed right into your boot. Then they hold water well! Seriously though, these are the most awesome boots.

Worth the price?
So the price tag is kind of steep if you are cheap frugal like me. I think I paid about $40 for my boots on Amazon. I will absolutely spend the money again if and when these give out. There was actually a deal on Groupon recently for a great sale, but I couldn't convince my hubby to let me have two pairs of work boots.

Comfy?
Oh yes! I have had them just over a month now and I wear them EVERY single day. I even wear them to the feed store. They are supportive, but not hard rubber like some of the cheaper types of boots.

Pros:
  • Super Comfy
  • Waterproof
  • Cute patterns
  • Seems to hold up well
Cons:
  • Kind of Pricey
  • Hard to find the prints you like sometimes 
Overall
I would absolutely recommend Slogger boots to anyone looking for a boot for: mucking stalls, cleaning the coop, gardening, yard work, or anything in between.

Any questions?

  2. The nights are drawing in, the leaves are falling and it is time to cover up those fading tanned legs. Yes, autumn is here. But on the upside, we can start to wear boots again. I find this website for Best Ariat Work Boots you can visit this site.
