Very comfy interior linging, solid sole, short heel - UPDATED Oct 2011 & 2015
I bought these for working in the barn - cleaning horse stalls, sloshing big water buckets and the like. It's just too hot in the summer to wear traditional boots (at least for me). The Sloggers garden shoes are very comfortable around the house and they are indeed waterproof - that alone makes them a worthwhile purchase. They have a really cushy lining inside. I also like the tread on the bottom of the sole - solid enough to walk in mud and slippery ground without sliding around at all.
The ONLY complaint I have and the reason I am leaving a four star rather than five star review is the heel & overall fit. I wear an 8 1/2 normally in sneakers and boots and 9 in high heels, so I ordered the size 9. I figured even if they were a tad wider than needed, socks would make up for the difference. They fit fine with regard to actual measurements. However, with every step the heel is very loose and feels like it's going to slide off my foot. They feel like those backless clogs instead of a solid fitting shoe. The height of the back of the shoe is lower than a traditional shoe and higher than a traditional clog. DROVE ME CRAZY for the first few days and now I've gotten used to it & it's fine. Just a warning though if you need the support of a regular back or heel, then these probably aren't for you.
************************UPDATE Oct 2011*********************************************
After wearing these Sloggers every single day since I bought them I am still very happy with them. They are indeed waterproof - I stepped in what turned out to be a deep puddle, immersing the shoes to the very top edge. No damage whatsoever inside or out. My foot was dry inside the shoe. I was concerned that every day use would stretch them at the ankle area or it would weaken etc - so far it's just like new. I will buy these Sloggers again in the future for sure!
****** UPDATE January 2015 *********
I am on my third pair of Sloggers Garden Shoe since 2011 and that's amazing. Let me be clear - I beat the daylights out of these shoes and they can take a surprising amount of abuse. Mud, unspeakable things in horse stalls, water, rocks, fire ants and the puppy who was convinced a pot roast was hidden in the left foot of the 2013 pair! My only caveat is that slightly short heel back - still the same.

Excellent comfortable, safe, garden and rain shoe!
I normally am a size 7.5 or 8, and ordered a size 8. In the red pattern. And I have bunions. I was so surprised at how comfortable they are!! They allow room for my bunions without being tight at all. Many shoes are too narrow or too wide, but these are perfect. Form the foot well. And the rubber bottom is thick, well made, with a solid grip on wet grass as I garden a lot. I am not experiencing my foot popping out in the heel as some have stated. Perfect garden shoes, and I will use them on rainy days for shopping too, due to their waterproofing and solid rubber form. They replaced my open back Crocs, which allowed me to slip and slide a lot, a danger. Gardening is made fun with these! Just lightly rinse them off if soiled. Great also for a simple romp out to the back yard to dump trash in the morning dew or rain. Exactly what I was looking for!!

I am extremely happy with this garden shoe. My normal size is 8 and I ordered a size 8 and they fit great. They keep my feet nice and dry in the mornings when the dew is on. They may be just a smidgen big if I wear thin socks, but I like a medium weight sock and my toes don't feel squished at all. Even when I do wear a thin sock, the shoe doesn't come off my foot. I got the plain black because it was a little less expensive, but even so, it is a cute wet weather and garden shoe. I am overjoyed that it is made in the USA!! I will definitely be ordering more from this company.

I love my Sloggers! I was looking for a lightweight, packable waterproof shoe for a trip to Ireland and England and found these in a quick 2DayDeliver search. They were perfect for my needs, and I walked for hours with happy dry feet over rural, village and city settings. Best solution possible for me, and I know I will wear them at home as much as I did traveling. The solid black, although shiny, are very presentable, and I bought a snazzy pair of printed ones which I did not take but which will get lots of wear on rainy-day trips to the grocery store or just around the neighborhood. The higher back on the shoes are better for me than clogs, and the wide toe box and the lightly padded fabric around the opening add to the comfort. True to size for my size 7 foot. A great purchase!

They are very comfortable. For those who are wondering about what size ...
This is my third pair of Sloggers but this one is different. It is made of a different material, not sure what it is and it is covered in a clear vinyl so I am not sure that it will last as long. I am still using the others which are sliders but wanted more coverage . The older pairs are made of rubber, I believe ,lasted many years... They are very comfortable .For those who are wondering about what size to get, well, I am an 8 but got a 9 so I can wear socks and they fit great with them an not too loose without them.

Bought these for my mom for Christmas. She loveedddddddf them! They're such nice quality and she loves thing made in the USA. But there one big "but" here. My mom who suffers from RA has trouble with her feet. The actual opening of the clog is too tight. Everything else for great, and she was really upset I had to return them. I do assume that they're made to be this way having a tight opening so that no water gets in. But if you happen to have painful swelling in the feet or anything of that nature, just keep that in mind.

OMG! My dogs are no longer howling!
I have a degenerative bone disease and it has affected my feet so that not only are they terribly sensitive but my ankles are now fused so no flexing which makes keeping my balance difficult if my shoes are not supportive. this means i usually have to purchase an orthopedic/medically recommended shoe which are so pricey! I was skeptical of buying shoes online (hate having to do returns) because wide width doesn't always mean they fit. these do not come in a wide width but I usually buy a 9 in that case. i needed a good garden shoe because i refuse to ruin my athletic shoes doing yard work and these came across a buzzfeed post. when i got them they looked big, bulky, and heavy but narrow but i figured i would wear them in the house in case i had to return them. omg! they not only are incredibly comfy but they are sooo lightweight and in spite of not being a wide width, do not fit tight. i love the fact that the inner soles are removeable so when i have to clean them i can air them out to dry. i am looking forward to not only doing my gardening but general running around in these. NOTE: i got these in order to wear without socks. because of the material they will probably not stretch with time. so, if you plan to wear socks i would recommend a size up because, at least for me, they fit comfortable but i don't think they would if i added a sock. besides, being waterproof i would end up with really soggy socks and feet because i have sweaty feet to begin with - not something i usually admit to.

Really like these shoes
These shoes are very comfortable with the exception that you should wear a foot covering of some type otherwise, your feet will develop a strong odor. They fit well, wear well and give good support. I ordered a regular size and should have specified medium width too. They do not stretch much and the medium would have been more comfortable for me. I also have the rain boots from Sloggers and those are perfect. They are a bit looser on my feet being an medium width and I can wear those without the socks or hose and no odor. Guess the air can get in the larger width and keep my feet cooler.
Shoes are also very attractive and whimisical.

Best little gardening shoes.
So, so happy with my little Sloggers. I take care of the garden at my son's school. I keep these in the car so I always have them with me. They took a little getting used to as the heel doesn't come all the way up (I was prepared for this from some of the other reviews) but it turns out I think I like that better. There was no breaking in time. Usually, the heels of my shoes give me blisters until they've been broken in, but because they sit low they've been comfortable from day 1. They've been great in our sweltering heat (just make sure to wear socks or your feet will slip around) and they keep me warm now that it's cold. I've asked for the Sloggers boots for my Christmas gift because I love these so much.

Great shoe for doing light yard work
I needed a pair of slip on shoes for getting the mail and running to the garage to grab something. I had a pair of $5 generic Vann type shoes but of course they got worn out quickly. These are better for leaving outside by the door (in a covered area.) I am still breaking them in, so they slip on alright, but need some work. I wish there was a tab on the back like my Sloggers ankle boots have.
I wear a size 7 and these fit well with a gym sock on. They are wider in some parts than others, but they are not tight nor are they slipping off my feet. I have slipped these on a couple of times with just bare feet and they still felt okay. These are perfect for what I use them for and I like the solid black color. I don't think I would want to wear these all day long, but they are very convenient to wear as a quick, slip on shoe for doing tasks in the yard.
