Keeping a sure grip on even the greasiest cobble, Foot Tractor Wading Boots elevate our award-winning, patent-pending aluminum bar technology to new levels of performance.

Skate down the Lower Rogue’s algae-coated bedrock or stumble through a greasy Skeena boulder garden, and you’ll understand the inspiration behind our Foot Tractor Wading Boots. The aggressively shaped aluminum bars are hard enough to cut through algae and slime, yet soft enough to conform to rock surfaces; they also grip well on muddy trails, won’t accumulate snow, don’t hold moisture and are easy to clean. In other words, they offer the wading traction we’ve been looking for all our lives—the only surfaces they won’t stick are sheet ice or untextured slate or shale. Made with durable, fast-drying Clarino® synthetic leather uppers and monofilament mesh panels for drainage and weight reduction, the Foot Tractors offer industrial-strength support and performance in a light, comfortable boot. The oversized toe box and heel cups feature Texon® trilaminate to help protect the foot from rock impact while wading.
  • Lightweight Clarino® synthetic leather upper is supple and durable, even after extended flexing in wet environments
  • Monofilament mesh paneling for quick drainage and weight reduction
  • Oversized toe box and heel cup feature Texon® trilaminate to help protect heel and toe from rock impact and foot compression
  • Sticky rubber lugged sole with inset multidirectional-gripping aluminum bar design
  • 1,899 g (67 oz)

Foot Tractor Wading Boots is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Foot Tractor Boot = Great Great on the feet from the beginning. I got a 10 and it fits the Medium-Regular waders just fine. (I did have to get Large Neoprene Socks though, sizing differences) I've logged about 11 total miles in them with hiking and wading. Outstanding traction. It just works. I was really skeptical of the zig zag aluminum bar, but it grabs in the water and on the trail. Little rocks, boulders, mud, all of it. Kind of sounds like tap shoes on gravel/concrete pavilions which has nothing to do with the performance, just an FYI. Flows were pretty high in sections of the Rio Grande last weekend; there was no room for slipping. No problem for the Foot Tractor. The current was strong, but contact on riverbed was solid. Improvement: I wished it came with a smooth bottom, instead of perforated insole. I have gravel guards, but very small, fine rocks get in there regardless and they get into many of the perforations. Just an inconvenience to clean them out when drying, doesn't affect the comfort at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable grip. I have had a large array of wading boots over the years and these by far are the absolute best wading boots for sure footedness I have ever had. On the first trip I had them out was on Avery slippery river which I had not fished before. I did not realize that it was as slippery as it was until I saw other anglers slipping and sliding about wearing studded boots. I felt as it I was walking on dry rocks all the time. I can't wait to try them out on the Salmon River in New York. That will be the benchmark test. If they work as well as they did on the Susquehanna then they will be what all other manufacturers aim for for traction. Fit of this boot is very comfortable with the large toe box. That will come in handy to keep toes from being compressed when wearing heavy socks in winter. The only thing I would like would be a drain hole to let water out. Solidly built that I expect to get years of use from. So if you're on the fence about the price just get them. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a non-felt boot that works!!!! I am a long time felt sole guy. Having tried many brands of rubber/studded boots, I always returned to my old felt soles as the traction with felt was always superior. After 6 trips with my Foot Tractors, my old felt boots have now been retired. These Tractors stick like glue. Great fit and solid support. Easy on and off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Confidence wading again Best boot on market for Wading tough freestone rivers. Combined with wading staff I am confident to explore those tough to reach places. Wish stitching around toe lasted longer but Patagonia replaced without question.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Griptonite These things are bonkers. Rock-solid grip on slippery, ankle-breaking rocks. Tough construction makes you feel invincible in the river. Aluminum bar is here to stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable with Great Traction No comparison to older foot tractor comfort.. new boot is great. Size is spot on for my size 11 foot. Weight seems good. Aluminum is extremely sticking on all but rocks but flat slate. Looks of boot initially turned me off, but after wearing, I'm over it.. I've worn Orvis felt, Simms felt, Patagonia felt and old foot tractor. This is best traction and comfort by far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Boot! My favorite wader boot I've worn. As a guide I have tried many other boots on the market and these are hands down my overall favorite. Here are some of the pro's and con's I've found. Pro: Ultimate traction and grip on various stream terrain Great support Easy on / off Comfortable Cut generous enough to allow layered socks in waders and not feel cramped Easy to lace and stays tied Con's: Heavier than others when wet (keep in mind they are not marketed as lightweight) No real drain holes so collects some water Not good on ice (pretty obvious, they are not spikes) That being stated I wouldn't trade the support and grip for a little less weight. I have yet to really notice any more fatigue than normal after a 8-10hr day on the water. I wear the Rio Gallegos wader size ML and ordered the boots in a size 12. I normally wear a size 10.5 shoe but like to be able to layer up socks and not have my feet cramped. I can't imagine ever fishing again without these. I highly recommend these and you would be doing yourself a disservice not to at least try a pair.
