best-fishing-shoes

Fishing shoes are a must-have in every angler’s arsenal. And it shouldn’t just be any fishing shoes – it should be something that can withstand the stress of angling and saltwater fishing. However, there are many shoes out there that promise a comfortable experience but still fail to deliver. In this post, we discuss some of the best fishing shoes for the year 2019.

Merrell Men’s All Out Blaze Sieve Water Shoe

All foot apparel for fishing are marketed to be waterproof. But there are different types of “waterproof” so don’t just grab the nearest one you see on the shelf. However, the Merell Men’s shoe is one that lives up to this claim. This shoe is made of leather and rubber toe casing to make the shoes more durable for the sea climate while keeping your feet dry. The insole is made of comfortable material so you won’t have to sacrifice comfort especially if you will be on your feet most of the time.

Sperry Men’s Sea Kite Sport Moc

Firstly, you’ll never go wrong with this shoes’ compression-molded EVA midsole. The upper is made of leather with mesh panels, the Sperry Men’s Sea Kite Sport Moc is not only comfortable to wear but also stylish. And what’s really special about this fishing shoe is that its use is not limited to sea activities. Whether you’re in or out of the water, the rubber outsole is perfect for both water and dry activities while the air mesh keeps your feet cool and dry all the time.

KEEN Men’s Newport H2 Sandal

If you’re a sandal guy then the KEEN Men’s Newport H2 Sandal is the one for you. The fitted design allows the sandal to secure itself around your foot nicely while the outsole won’t scrape the surface. The rubber sole hold will securely on to surfaces, thanks to its lug pattern and razor siping. Lastly, its lightweight material, contour foot bed, breathability and odor-free features make the Newport sandal topnotch when it comes to comfort. That’s why we’ve included this one in our list of best fishing shoes, even though it’s technically a sandal.

ALEADER Men’s Mesh Slip-on Water Shoes

This pair has all the features a fishing shoe should have – breathable upper, draining vents and durable rubber outsoles to name a few. The ALEADER Men’s Mesh Slip-ons are made of lightweight materials with midsole and sock liner to provide extra comfort when wearing. And because they are lightweight and airy, these shoes don’t get really heavy when soaked with water.

Columbia Men’s Drainmaker III

Columbia is a brand that is synonymous to quality outdoor gear and apparel, that’s why the Drainmaker is included in this list of best fishing shoes. This shoe is made of synthetic mesh and designed in such a way that it lets out water out of the shoe – even when underwater. The Drainmaker is actually on the pricey side of things but buying this quality shoe can be considered a wise investment.
