    Any old pair of shoes or slipper would do, just to stop your feet touching floor. Or one of those clear plastic runners along your hallway?

    Outdoor crocks and a pair of indoor crocks for me!
    I also have a designated pair for the chicken run
    Cheap and easy to clean

    I'm curious how your feet get filthy. Are you a barefoot gardener?
    why didn't I think of that vc, haha yes seperate slippers to get to the bathroom
    I really don't know how my feet get so muddy, I've been digging a lot, all weather, when it's muddy I swear it flies into wellies, or whatever I'm wearing, and when it's dry it's dusty and also gets in that way.i may as well be a barefoot gardener, hehe

    I think there is a magnetic force of soil going towards my feet, the same way when cooking spinach, hair must be tied up or its attracted to the spinach and gets in the dish, something to do with the positive negative attraction same thing for my wierd feets love of mud I think

    Default Muddy feet

    Use scaffold planks between rows, or make walking boards from pallets.

    just an update on the footwear situation, it's been so hot here, that it's all dusty and not muddy at all, problem solved, I just wear my good old flip flops, for now

    In winter I wear wellies with overtrousers, in summer if it's dry I wear clog-type shoes. I always tuck my trousers into my socks, though... I'm a big girl, so there's no gap between welly tops and legs. Sometimes I get muddy socks, but never muddy feet...
