    I like my rubber boots I got from Wally World, but they make my feet sweat really bad when it is hot out....

    Muck boots! They come in all different heights, shoes to knee high rubbers.

    Summer and dry weather- worn out Clarks half shoes. Work great when you have an ailing chicken in your arms and no way to tie shoe laces.

    Winter and wet weather- mucking boots from tractor. Don't buy the cute multi colored ones. I have had 3 pairs and none lasted me past 4 months without starting to crack and leak on the side. My best pair I actually bought at Walmart. They just turned 6 years old and are slowly starting to leak. I didn't like the sad brown color so I spray painted them orange. [​IMG]

    Nope [​IMG] Not really. I am thinking next time I need to put some cover spray over it to keep the paint "flexible" otherwise it'll peel off after a while. Right now I just keep respraying, that helps too.

    muck boots - with steel toes. Worn with thick old socks. Summer is pink flip flops, but only for a quick dash out and back as they're not fireant proof.

    I wonder if that paint for plastic lawn furniture would stay on?
