About Us

Stylish and colourful garden shoes, clogs and back door shoes for women ; hand made from natural rubber, seriously comfortable and totally waterproof.

Two sisters from a family of gardening women, who wanted to reflect their sense of style in their gardening shoes but couldn't find the right thing....so decided to design their own!

When we started out we knew that our shoes had to be comfortable and practical but also we believe that all gardeners have a creative flair, often matched in their homes and personal style, and so they had to look good too. We like to think we have achieved this and have made it possible for everyone to express themselves in their own special way; not only the most colourful garden shoes you will find but the Poddy accessory on the front of every shoe allows you to find your own style! Just tuck in a fresh flower from your own garden and the shoes will be uniquely styled for you!

When we aren't working on Poddy and Black we both have our gardens to spend time in, and as we live pretty close to each other we often swap seedlings and plants. Our 90 year old auntie is our hero, out in her garden every day, we still go to her for gardening advice!

How they are made.

Caring for the planet as much as we can.

One of us has a background in fashion and footwear and enjoyed a long career sourcing products for luxury brands from around the world. We both have a passion for organic gardening and trying to be as sustainable as we can, and so we choose a factory in Asia well known to us who meets the highest standards of social and environmental governance.

Our shoes are hand made according to a process that has hardly changed since the nineteenth century, made from natural tree grown rubber and lined with recycled cotton linings. Our packaging is recycled cardboard and we only ship by sea to keep our carbon emissions as low as possible.
