Foot Tractor Wading Boots - Sticky Rubber

Item # foot-tractor-wading-boots-sticky-rubber



Patagonia Foot Tractor Wading Boots are high quality USA made wading boots built for years of abuse. Rather than toss out your worn out wading boots, this collaboration between Danner and Patagonia is meant to keep boots out of landfills. Foot Tractors are handmade so they can be fully re-crafted when they start to break down or need new soles.

If you have ever heard of the Danner Boot Company, you probably know this... Danners are super comfortable and extremely well built!

Made in the USA


  • Waterproof full-grain leather treated with a PFC-free saline solution tanning process for improved resistance to breakdown, even in salt water; the leather can be reconditioned as necessary. Tough 1,000-denier nylon paneling provides excellent abrasion resistance

  • Upper is stitched to 5mm rubber midsole for stability underfoot; a second, lower midsole is made from water-resistant polyether polyurethane that adds additional comfort and support

  • Adjustable lacing system has traditional eyelets across the forefoot and speed lacing through the ankle; the speed lacing provides easy tightening, supports the ankle and helps lock the heel in place

  • Perforated drains on both sides of boot upper clear water quickly; for faster dry times, upper design is free from unnecessary foams and backer

  • Stitch-down construction creates a wider platform for more stability, helps protect the boot sidewall and allows the boots to be resoled by Danner

  • Vibram® Idrogrip sole compound specially developed for maximum grip on wet surfaces; the sole offers great all-around traction for long approaches and mixed streambed footing such as rock, gravel and mud

Danner® boots are built to accommodate additional layers such as wader booties or socks, so we suggest choosing your regular street-shoe size. Foot Tractor Boots work with thicker wader booties or socks; If you want to wear them with thin wader booties or if you’re wet-wading, please size down.
