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 4.4 out of 5 by 32.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, a great wading boot I wade some very rocky rivers. I bought these boots based on a friend's recommendation. I was not disappointed. They are very grippy on rocky bottoms. Sometimes I feel a bit of a slide before the bars catch. They are very comfortable boots, easy to get on and off. I think they could be improved in a few ways, however. The need better drainage. They take a really long time to dry out. Also, they are very heavy, but that probably has more to do with the bars than the boots themselves. Overall, they perform well and I am very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great none! These boots are the best I've ever owned. Fix and sizing are amazing. The tractor traction bars are top notch. I can't belive the grip I have on all surfaces in and around the river. Safe and secure footing and all day comfort. Love these boots as much as I love to fish. I mainly fish the Salmon River in Altmar NY.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really Liek these Wading Boots The really the feel and comfort of these Tractor Wading Boots, they are not has heavy as other brands that I've owned in the past. I have yet to slip once in the rivers and streams with them. The only issue I with them have is that there are no drain holes along the foot bed & soles so I have to turn them upside down to drain water out of the so they dry with mildewing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not overly impressed My girlfriend bought a pair of these for my Christmas present and we had to send them back right away because of a sizing issue. I have a previous pair of Patagonia boots in a size 14 but these in the same size were enormous! Upon receiving my new pair I quickly noticed two things while on the river. One; They are extremely heavy when wet.. no drainage hole, so all they do is hold water. I literally had to empty my boots twice because they filled up so much. However, the ability to wade on slick surfaces with these is undoubtedly the best. The bars really bite into whatever they make contact with... now to see how long the bars actually last. All in all a fair product but, I think Patagonia needs to stick with clothing and climbing gear. Everything I've purchased related to "fly-fishing" from this company hasn't been the best in quality. I'll probably send these back and revert back to my previous brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stickiest boot I've worn The Foot Tractors stick to slick rocks like nothing I've ever used. Solid all the way. A tad on the heavy side but it's an easy trade-off for the extra grip I get from them. I have a narrow foot so I put a closed cell foam insole in to snug up the fit. I love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A product that will actually catch more fish?! Sounds like a false claim, I know. These days you can spend hundreds even thousands of dollars on new gear. At the end of the day 99.5% of this new gear will not improve your fishing game. These boots are the .5% of new products that will help you catch more... I bought these boots for fall fishing in SW Montana. Compared to my other boots these excelled in 3 areas: Grip, Stability, Fit. GRIP. Better grip means more places (holes, pockets, etc). Fishing more places increases your probability of hooking more fish. As you'd expect, these boots offer much better grip than rubber. They also grip better than felt. Felt does nothing when your wading across rocks covered in inches of snotty slick moss. These treds cut right through this stuff and connect you to the rock. I was easily able to reach more places confidently and ultimately catch more fish. STABILITY. These boots significantly increase the size of your foot print. Standing in fast water felt much safer in these boots than in any other pair I have worn. Once I did wade to a new spot I felt comfortable standing there longer allowing me to properly work that spot until I cracked the code, so to speak. FIT. This season I tried on every boot that had come to market in the last 2 years. Once I slipped into these boots I immediately noticed the toe box was wider without allowing the rest of my foot (heel) to slip around. Cool, but no big deal. Here's where the fit of these boots blew my older pairs away...The fit of these boots actually kept my feet warmer. Wearing the same exact wader, same sock, in the same water. The difference was the boots. My feet NEVER got as cold as they used to. Warmer feet means longer fishing. In summary, these boots will keep you on the water longer and allow you to wade to more places...leading you to more opportunities!
