Grass is a living thing that needs air and water to grow. Regular mowing and other outdoor activities in the garden during the summer months lead to compaction in the surface layer of the lawn. Drainage is impeded and it is harder for water , air and fertiliser to penetrate to the roots. The Greenkey lawn aerating sandals provide a fast and efficient way to keep your lawn aerated, helping the lawn to breathe and take in essential nutrients. The thirteen 50mm (2") spikes on each shoe provide deep and even aeration. Best used as part of your lawn care routine in Spring and Autumn. For best results, use when the ground is soft. Do not use on stoney or uneven ground Very quick to assemble. Spare parts available.

Greenkey Lawn Aerating Sandals
Grass is a living thing and needs air and water to grow.
Greenkey Lawn Aerating Sandals offer an easy solution to aerating your lawn. There are thirteen 5 cm spikes on each shoe, which penetrate the soil, improving drainage and allowing air, water and nutrients to reach the roots. This encourages deeper root growth and helps achieve a green, lush lawn.
The sandals are easy to use and easy to follow assembly instructions are included. However, should you wish to talk to someone, the Greenkey after sales team are happy to help.
The new buckles are easy to adjust and ensure a snug fit. Follow the assembly instructions to ensure they are fitted correctly and ensure the plastic sliders are used as well.
There are two slots on the heel through which the straps can be passed. These ensure you can use the correct slot to suit your shoe size.
A full range of spare parts are kept in stock by the manufacturer. These can be sourced directly from Greenkey Garden and Home.

My main observation is that I really don't understand the criticisms levelled at these sandals. As far as I am concerned they do exactly what they are designed to do efficiently and reliably and at a reasonable cost.
1. Fitting the spikes to the sole piece was easy and the instructions for installing the straps and buckles were very clear. Total assembly time less than 15 minutes.
2. The straps, once adjusted to size, remained secure and did not loosen at all during an hour's continuous use when worn over an old pair of stout walking boots
3. The 'Ministry of Silly Walks' comments are hugely exaggerated. Yes, there is a technique but I would grade it as the equivalent to trudging through about 5 or 6 inches of fresh snow. Trudge is the operative word. Don't think you can walk at normal speeds - you can't. At no time did I feel the need for support or assistance to balance as some reviewers claim
4. They are not hugely tiring to use when the correct technique is used. My lawn area is about 400 square metres and I combined a hose-pipe watering session with walking up and down for an hour and was not unduly fatigued and I am in no way an athlete!
A couple of warnings:
A. The spikes themselves are effectively hex-headed bolts which sit in close-fitting hexagonal recesses moulded into the top of the sole piece with a threaded portion protruding from the bottom onto which a nut is tightened. The nut needs to be tightened using a spanner but because the hex-head is recessed there is no way to prevent the head rotating other than the walls of the plastic recess. If excess torque is applied to the nut then it is possible to damage the plastic sole unit. Take care to tighten the nut just enough.....
B. If you are using a hosepipe, pay attention to what you are doing..... I didn't - 'nuff said!
In summary, easy to assemble, easy to use and does what the seller says. I just need to see if the aeration improves the quality of my grass.
Then I realised I had not set the straps up properly and hey presto, they don't loosen anymore. I wonder if others did the same. You have to feed the strap into the small buckle first before the clip, then back into the buckle. May seem obvious to the wiser folk but at least I got it the second time. I think the instructions could be better using a better and different diagram. In fact, you wouldn't need to use words if properly illustrated and less confusing.
Assembling the rest was easy and straight forward. I just finger-tightened the nuts on the spikes and wouldn't recommend tightening them with a spanner otherwise the plastic will probably crack. I guess you could give them a quarter turn or so wouldn't risk any more.
And, they work!
They still can slightly come off now and then, maybe it partly depends on how resistant the soil is. Some areas it feels light but other moist areas bring a sweat on. I think the best way to walk in these is in a marching fashion with knees up if you can because it's straight up and down which brings less chance of them slipping off from an angle.
I've given them 5 stars comparing the quality and effectiveness with value. If I had paid over £20 then I would expect a more secure fitting.
Hope that helps.
My strap slipped and the spikes ripped through the strap itself underneath....after about 2 hrs of faffing around and mincing around the garden i just got completely annoyed and used a fork instead.
i would avoid these and possibly look at some with decent straps.
Once I'd gotten over the brain teaser that was constructing the sandals I got to work on the garden in them. They spikes themselves are reasonably long and, providing the ground has some moisture in it, pushed through the soil quite easily. It took me about 20 minutes to do my whole garden and as in the end I was pleased with the performance but be prepared for some sore calf muscles as it does require some effort on your part
A couple of points worth noting:
+ They are really good for the price
+ They do what you expect them to do
+ They arrived quickly and overall they don't seem like they will break/be unusable after a few uses
- The straps really dug into me (I'd maybe advise wearing some really thick socks)
- Provide some instructions for the straps as some people won't have a clue
- Th screws loosen really quickly, they won't come out due to the design but it's annoying having to constantly tighten them
