    I need some easy on, easy off shoes to do my chicken duties in. I have old tennis shoes, but the ventilation makes for dirty socks and wet feet if the grass is wet. I also have feet that hate shoes. Super high arches, and not much padding on the bottoms so I tend to need cushy shoes. Any suggestions? Crocs and I do not get along, so those are out.

    I go barefoot or wear flip flops all the time, I even tilled the garden barefooted when it was too muddy to wear boots.... the girls at the manicure salon hate me!!

    I usually slip on my Justin Gypsy boots. Quick, easy, comfy, and no pecked toes.

    I wear those black rubber looking pull on boots from TSC, I think I paid $9.99 for them. They're great!

    I go barefoot most of the time, but if I should wear shoes I love the LL Bean slip ons.

    Worn out 3 pairs already!

    I cant do barefoot. My feet hurt even to go barefoot in the house. I have some bones that grow in funny directions, so they are closer to the bottom of my feet than they should be.

    Quote:I WISH I could get a pair of boots! I have never been able to find a pair that didnt make me want to cry from the pain though. Too hard bottomed. I guess I could try some inserts, but the prob there is that my stupid feet have such high arches they are now too tall for the shoes/boots once I have insoles in. Grr!

    I buy the rubber boots from the feed store and they last a long time. I am in and out of them two or three times a day and love them.

    I have seen for sale these boots that are designed to fit over shoes. Hmm but I don't remember the name of them. I will look around....

    ok here is one company- the first that came up on the search engine and I have never heard of them but it gives you an idea...

    and by the way the brand I love and wear is Servus- I noticed they have Servus.
