When it comes to pickin', your feet are probably the last thing ya think about. And really, your feet may be one of the first things you need to consider. I love wearing my flip flops around the old homestead, but they are not meant for pickin'.
No, these are not my feet. My toes are camera shy. My toes and I took a vote and it was 10 to 1 so no photo of my feet. Anyhoo...when you are pickin', you will be on your feet a lot. You want and need comfort. There's also a safety issue. Ya don't want to head into a barn with flip flops or flimsy shoes. Just sayin'.
My favorite pickin' footwear is heavier athletic shoes or what I call 'my clod hoppers'.
And ya need boots to fight off the rain and mud.
Many a time, I take along an extra pair of shoes. Always be prepared...the pickers' motto. Or is that the boy scouts? Or is it the girl scouts? Pffftttt...it's the pickers' motto now.
Now hold up your right hand and repeat after me...
