the ultimate hard-wearing boot

When the Gardener was first launched in the late 1950s, it was hailed as the ultimate hard-wearing boot. And that legacy continues to be honoured in the boot’s contemporary revamp, resulting in the perfect pairing of rugged performance that can tackle any condition and a premium style that provides versatility for every situation.
