Default Lawn Aerator Shoes

Lawn Aerator Shoes
I'm going to have to hold everyone back from buying these.
Lawn Aerator Shoes

For only $16.99 plus shipping and handling, you could be the proud owner of this pair of lawn aerator shoes.

Have you used these? Do you think they really make a difference. I've seen them before, but never knew anyone who had used them. I'd love to know what you think of them.

And you still don't know anyone who uses them. I'm so sorry. That was meant as a joke.

I can't imagine anyone paying money for a pair of strap on sandals with nails in them. Aside from that, few at WG are interested in beautifying their lawns. This crowd is into reducing lawns.

Yeah, I don't have any lawn at all. Was just wondering what the point of those things was. I really don't see how they'd work anyway. Maybe backscratchers?

The point is to separate us from our money.

I can get a backscratcher for 99. These were too silly to pass up posting them.

Be careful! If you put them on upside down - ouch!

I had a neighbor who used them when he mowed. The idea is to aerate compact soils. But poking holes in compacted soil only makes it more compacted. To effectively aerate soil, you need to pull out pugs of soil. Or you can let natural freezing and thawing do it.
