Perfect Picnic Shoes

Happy National Picnic Month!  Picnics are more than just an opportunity to breathe fresh air and enjoy good times with friends and/or coworkers.  With Americans weighing more than ever, I propose that picnics are a naturally enjoyable way to slim down.  First, the fact that you’ll pack your lunch beforehand improves the chances that you’ll get a well-balanced meal.  (Also:  it’s hard to find a drive-through on the trail.)  Second, you’ll have to walk or hike  somewhere before you eat– meaning you’ll burn off at least a few calories.  Finally, if you’re like me, you’ll be more motivated to get in shape if your picnic companions notice a wheezing sound emanating from your cherry red face as you stumble up the trail.  Still, even if your body isn’t exactly your ideal shape, there’s no reason you can’t look good on the picnic path.  To encourage all Shoefly readers to get out there and dine al fresco, I’m featuring shoes that are great choices for any picnic, along with a few footgear tips to make your next picnic the best ever.

Twelve Days of Shoe Shopping #3: Hens/Beyla

On the third day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
Three French hens
But which breed? According to the BBC, there are four major breeds of French hens: Faverolles, La Fleche, Crevecoeurs and Marans. The most practical breed for winter gastronomie is the favorelle, which is a winter egg-laying machine. For those who are inclined to favor style over utility, the Marans is a groovy bird. Even that perennial epitome of cool, James Bond, couldn’t resist the Marans’ chocolate brown eggs.
