April and May are two of our wettest months in the Black Hills of South Dakota. And, while I have multiple pairs of waterproof boots for trudging around construction sites, my favorite by far are my cute Sloggers Rain & Garden Shoes.
I bought my first pair in October 2018 and have worn the heck out of them in some pretty wet and muddy conditions. While the colors have faded a bit, they are still just as cute and comfortable as the day I got them. But I must confess, I did recently order a new pair in a pattern I have been in love for a long time.
Sloggers makes waterproof shoes, boots, clogs and ankle boots in a wide variety of patterns for women and men. They retail from $29.99 to $39.99, making them very affordable. They run fairly true to size as I typically wear an 8 to 8 ½ shoe. My sloggers are an 8.
They feature “All-Day Comfort” insoles for maximum comfort. And, Slogger’s signature deep-lug tread are great for traction. They are easy to put on and easy to clean up. And best of all, Slogger’s are proudly made in the USA.
The company was founded in 1948 in Gardena, California with their first clear plastic overshoe called the Drizzle Boot. It graced the feet of such celebs as Doris Day. They were clear plastic overshoes that women wore to protect their shoes. The founder of the company made the boots because his aunt complained about getting grease on her shoes when frying bacon! Today, their California plant can make up to 4,000 pairs of sloggers a day.
Committed to Customers
Sloggers is committed to listening to their customers, developing prints and styles that have a lasting WOW appeal. In the 2000’s they realized the value of social media and revised their boots and shoes to match customer needs and wants. Some of the cute patterns on their shoes were actually co-created by Facebook fans.
What really sets this company apart is they have a recycling program to show their commitment to sustainability. Up to 50% of mixed recycled material is used in the soles of their boots and shoes. Their “Reuse and Recycle” program encourages customers to return their boots or shoes when they have finally worn out. Sloggers will grind them up and put them back into a new pair and give you a coupon code for $5.00 to be used at their online store plus Free Shipping.
Get yourself a pair and you’ll soon know why Sloggers are America’s #1 Backdoor Shoe. Be sure to post a picture of you with your sloggers on my Girl Camper Facebook Page.
