Whether you’re in hot pursuit of Mother’s Day caddis or chasing coastal chrome, you need the most dependable traction to keep you vertical in the heavy runoff of spring. Mowing through almost anything you’ll encounter on the riverbed, our Foot Tractor Wading Boots offer a secure connection to the substrate so you can focus your attention on the task at hand. 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. 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
  • Upper: Clarino® synthetic leather with monofilament mesh panels. Toe box and heel counter: Texon® trilaminate. Sole: multidirectional-gripping aluminum bars

Foot Tractor Wading Boots is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 38.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid features for exceptional traction! I decided to scrub other choices in favor of this boot, Was wary about weight and bulkiness but have experienced nothing but comfort and solid traction in the local freestone river. It's great not stumbling around and losing your balance...much more confidence in wading now!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Boot I fish between 150-200 days a year. These boots are hands down the best wading boot for the irregular sized slime covered rocks that make up the majority of the bottom of the rivers I fish and guide on. I've gotten many comments from clients and friends about how effortlessly I move around the streams. it's all due to these boots. The bars hold up well, and replacement is easy when they do wear out. Which is infrequently. A little on the heavy side, but in fast water, I consider that an advantage. I could not be happier with these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fishing Boots for Avid Fly-Fishers I fish roughly 120-130 days a year. I learned fast that good fishing boots are perhaps the most important element of gear I own. They can make your day great, or miserable. These boots are outstanding. The grip is excellent even in difficult situations. They also slide on and off easily, wet or dry. Personally I need to purchase a boot 2-sizes bigger than my normal shoe size to account for extra socks and waders. I recommend to try on at a local fly shop or Patagonia store to make sure you choose the best size for you. I strongly recommend these boots for people fly fishing a lot, and in challenging conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Foot Tanks These are built tough and feel like tanks on your feet plowing through trails and creeks. They can be tricky walking on land sometimes since the traction bars don't flex around round rocks and other odd shapes. Once you are in the water and feel how well the traction on the riverbed works you realize its worth the stiffness out of the water. I wear a 9.5 shoe usually so I got a size 10 to be able to comfortably fit a thick wool sock while searching for winter steelhead in Oregon. They have been great for hiking to the river and gripping well on slippery river rocks.
