Footwear

Last year I wore Nike Shocks (love them), and fished bare foot. I was just wondering what you guys wear in the boat. Looking to get some new fishing kicks. My biggest concern is comfort after standing all day, but I also want breathable. Just curious to see what you guys are wearing...

I like sandals or bare foot.

A word of warning to anyone fishing from my boat....

Go Barefoot at your own risk. Footwear required by those under 10 y/o/a. If you know what I am saying....

Under Armour Mirage is what I bought for this year. Last year I wore some adidas vented shoes a lot like the nike shocks.

Merrel's. They have several different models that are great. I wear some waterproof ones until it gets really hot out, then gravitate towards sandals.

heavy duty crocs... they float (big plus) breathe, are comfortably and are only 40 bucks. Lasted 2 years so far and I abuse them. Even portaging in the BW with them!

Im also a fan of barefoot if you are careful and in a clean boat. Otherwise I just use nike tennis shoes with the padded inserts added into them

Are these the shoes you got, if so where did you get them? I was looking for some but wanted to try them on before buying a pair.

I use a pair of pool flip flops. No problem walking out in the water a ways if the ramp doesn't have a dock. Plus they float!

Seriously, my daughter was up at some tanning salon for a UV treatment in December and there were these really light weight, mesh type slip ons. Style was a lot like a running shoe. Soles looked like they would grip fairly well. When I picked her up, I thought "Hey these would be nice out on the boat" Of course I cannot recall their name. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Paul

Chacos. They are really nice because they have a good comfortable sole with some arch support plus they are a sandle. They give you some crazy tan lines on your feet though.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
