Patagonia™ Foot Tractor Wading Boots

Patagonia's replaceable aluminum bar insert wading boots
Flexible, providing stability, durability and foot protection

The Patagonia Foot Tractor™ Wader Boots feature state-of-the-art aluminum inserts that grip the stream bottom for increased traction and stability. The Foot Tractor™ Wading Boots with more aggressively shaped aluminum bars are just hard enough to cut through algae and slime, yet soft enough to conform to rock surfaces. These boots also grip well on muddy trails, won’t accumulate snow and don’t hold moisture. The Foot Tractors offer the wading traction we’ve been looking for a good portion of our lives. Made with fast-drying synthetic leather and Venergy monofilament mesh panels, Foot Tractors offer industrial-strength support and protection in a light, comfortable boot.

  • Clarino® synthetic leather upper for the finest in lightweight and durability, even after extended flexing in wet environments
  • Venergy 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
  • 1899 g (67 oz)
  • Made in Bangladesh.

  1. Just the greatest review by Bearflyfish on 2/23/2016
    Rating 1-5 Stars

    The new Foot Tractor wading boot is better than advertised and proof is made on the river. The FT is the easiest on/off boot ever. Also, it is a warm boot because the sizing allows freedom of movement for the toes to keep the circulation going. They are sized to fit one size larger than shoe size and mine are spot on. Lacing is a simple, quick matter and the laces secure the boot like a glove over your feet- super comfortable. On the steelhead river, the aluminum bars bite through weed and crud to grip bowling ball rocks with no problem. The Foot Tractor wading boot is without doubt the best Patagonia was ever produced. Compare it to any other wading boot on the market- it is just the greatest.

  2. Heavy review by Taku on 2/23/2016
    Rating 1-5 Stars

    Overall, these are fine boots. The traction is great, fit is good, comfort is very good. But for me, they simply weigh too much. For comparison, I had converted my Riverwalker Sticky sole boots using aluminum stock (my wife is still wondering where the stays to her old Lowe pack went) - and while the walking is much better with the Foot Tractors, the weight is very noticeable to me, especially after a long day of wading. They also take much longer to dry out, which is less of a factor for me. Combining the uppers of the old Riverwalker to the sole comfort and traction of the Foot Tractor would be the next great boot for me. Still, they do offer such great traction and overall walking comfort that I ain't getting rid of them.
