In brief: No.

hepatitis C is only transmitted through direct blood contact.
Most of the time this is either from injections of illicit drugs or through blood transfusions. You can not get it from casual contact on shoes or hands. If you feel that you are concerned about hepatitis C, see your doctor for some simple tests.
