SHOES FOR THE DIY SOLE

The Family Handyman - - STUFF WE LOVE - SPIKE CARLSEN, CON­TRIBUT­ING EDITOR

We spend our hard-earned cash for spe­cial shoes to help us golf, run and bike. So why not a shoe to help us do yard work? Kujo Yard­wear shoes were de­vel­oped by a guy fed up with slip­ping while mow­ing his lawn, weary of wear­ing heavy boots for dig­ging, and tired of hav­ing wet feet. His goal: a shoe that was light­weight, breath­able, flex­i­ble and com­fort­able, yet durable and wa­ter re­sis­tant with good trac­tion.

I “test walked” a pair for a week and found them to be func­tional and com­fort­able. They of­fer good sup­port and trac­tion, yet the shoes flex eas­ily. The wa­ter­proof sole and lower rim kept my feet dry in damp grass, while the up­per mesh let them breathe.

The shoes are avail­able in men’s and women’s styles for about $120 (in­clud­ing ship­ping.) You can or­der a pair at ku­jo­yard­wear.com.
