Shoes, you can tell a lot by a man's shoes

in

Forrest Gump said that, "Mama always said you could tell a lot about a man by his shoes." and we, like the lady he was saying it to, could care less. Your shoes on the Irish C need to help you catch fish, not keep you from it. Athletic shoes are the best, as the boat moves so must the balance on your feet. After a couple hours of rocking back and fourth in your flipflops you may wonder,

"why didn't anyone tell me to wear athletic shoes?"

Unless the power just went out 15 seconds ago and you lost your computer, we just told you. Remember that more comfort is more casts, which is more fish! Sure we could hire a paid actor like Tom Hanks to remind you from time to time, but we'd rather spend it on making sure you get the right equipment to get the fish. Sorry Tom, I guess you'll have to start looking for work elsewhere.

Yes Tennis shoes are Athletic shoes, except no one actually wears shoes specifically designed for tennis on a fishing trip. No one.
