So far we've tried three different types of shoes. Some that work and some that just get suck in the mud.
So far I've tried three different styles and while some have worked great for others, so far only one has worked for me.
For Dr. Mike, whose spent just about as much time in the mud as I have, the rubber work boots are the best. It keeps the mud out and keeps pants dry up to the knees. I had trouble wearing these because my feet are smaller and kept falling out of them.
Rubber clogs seemed like a good idea at the time, however the shoes get so stuck in the mud that you can barely more in them.
The best shoes, so far, for me has been the above style water shoes. Walking in the mud with these is like walking barefoot. You still have to be careful because as I said before this soil is very slippery when wet.
