Just a regular pair of sharp scissors works. I have a pair with a blunt tip.

I will use a combination of thinning shears on his feathers and curved shears for all feet work (both top of the foot at the pads).

I like to use a slicker to brush up any hair on the top of the foot, and i'll use my fingers to pull any remaining hair out from between the toes. Snip - snip and its gone. The curved blade helps me follow the natural line of his paw.
