Patagonia + Danner Foot Tractor and River Salt Wading Boots Launch

Patagonia Foot Tractor Wading Boots - Felt (Built By Danner)

Patagonia Danner Foot Tractor Wading Boots

Launching today (3/6/19), Patagonia and Danner have partnered up to build two of the most durable and highest-performing wading boots on the planet – the Foot Tractor Wading Boot and the River Salt Wading Boot. After extensive collaboration between designers, ambassadors, and anglers from around the world, and countless hours of in-the-water research, Patagonia has combined their fly-fishing experience with Danner’s legendary quality and craftsmanship to create a wading boot beyond all others.

Patagonia believes that the love of wild fish and wild rivers lasts for a lifetime, so they’ve channeled their our own obsessions into building products that last just as long. The best wading boots need to be ultra-comfortable and supportive for long days in the water. They should grip subsurface terrain, muddy trails, and the occasional cross-stream log. They must drain quickly and avoid holding excess water. And on top of being tough as nails, they need to last a lifetime.

Meticulously designed in partnership with Danner Boots and built by hand in Portland, Oregon, these two new wading boots are the best the company has ever made – and the last ones that you’ll ever need to buy.

Providing heavy-duty support and protection for the most demanding wading, the Foot Tractors are the most durable, highest-performing wading boots possible; aluminum bar, Vibram® Idrogrip, and felt sole options allow anglers to choose the most effective traction for their specific needs.

  • 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
  • Perforated drains on both sides of boot upper clear water quickly; for faster dry times, the 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
  • Patented aluminum bars are hard enough to cut through slime and soft enough to conform to rock surfaces
  • 2461 g (86.8 oz)
