Hi all,

 

Just wondering if anyone had any recommendations on some nice fishing shoes that are very comfortable for fishing in for 5 hours or more?

 

Thanks in advance!

Several years ago, I got some "walking shoes" from BPS.   They were very lightweight brown suede with good arch support.   They were great fishing shoes - about worn out currently - now they are working in the lawn shoes.  This spring I got some New Balance walking shoes from BPS on sale, so that is what I wear for fishing now.

I tape all my used rubber baits to the bottoms of my feet.  Nothing better than an arch full of Senkos.  

 

 

I am either barefoot or crocks.

Bought a pair of boat shoes, biggest mistake, I've had surgery on my left ankle a few years back and these have no support, so bad for rough water. However I started wearing a pair of Mizuno cross trainers and aching back and knees went away. Just wouldnt recommend soaking them, heavy rain or getting in water loading unloading boat.

Whatever shoes are comfortable in other situations will also be comfortable while fishing.  The only thing you need to look for is the ability to dry quickly if you plan on your feet getting wet.  I wear Keen sandals both in the slip on and non slip on variety.  They are legitimate shoes that are also sandals you get support that you need, not like crocs which are nothing more than expensive EVA foam covered in plastic and they are horrible for your feet.

Crocs, these are the most comfortable shoes I own.

Keen are by the best I've owned. Currently wearing Reef flip flops and Columbia waterproof sandals, and they're goid, but not as good as the Keen Newports the dog ate.

Astral Porters - best shoe Ive owned and so comfortable, you can wear them as casual shoes to boot.   I've had Keen Newports, Columbia PowerDrains, Salomons, Crocs, Tevas and more.  Until I tried the Astral Porter, the Keen Newports were my favorite until they came apart after only one year of use.

Wow, my new ports were a few years old when the doc got them. I saw your new shoes in your report on the PB. Look good.

Memory foam flip flops.  I gotta let my dogs breathe or things get out of hand quick.  I'm a sweaty person and it's pretty gross- I weld all day too so when I get out of the shop I just want to vent.

I use a pair of Merrell Moab hiking shoes (lowtop) for shore fishing and they're light, breathable, comfortable, with good traction.  Have fished all day with them and they're great, will buy another pair once I wear these to shreds.

Crocs on the Kayak, and Merril, Vasque, or muck boots on the bank.
