Patagonia x Danner Foot Tractor Aluminum Bar Wading Boot

Step into fishing holes with slimy stones covering the riverbed with assured confidence that you won't slip when you're wearing the Patagonia Men's Foot Tractor Aluminum Bar Wading Boot. Patagonia built this boot with heavy-duty support and protection. Its waterproof, full-grain leather upper comes from Danner's American tannery, and it has a PFC-free saline solution process for improved resistance to breakdown. The Vibram Idrogrip rubber sole is specially compounded for maximum grip on wet surfaces, and the aluminum bars bite through slime to grip the rocks underneath.

I've put it through the wringer

My husband has 3 current pair of Patagonia wading boots and countless pairs have been 'retired' from use. When his latest trip recommended bars we searched for the bars to fit his current boots but were unable to track them down. I suggested these but the price was staggering at first. I knew the quality of Danner and the design and research of Patagonia would be a winner. I ordered them for my husband as a surprise. He is thrilled I did. They are the safest, strongest, most durable boots ever. He is fishing rare waters and some areas of the river were too shallow to float so the group has to pull the rafts and gear. These boots kept him safe and stable and able to put his full strength into the work on the slippery, rocky bottom. The fishing has been amazing and he can concentrate on having a great time instead of worrying about foot placement while he is enjoying reeling in fish. He has hiked in these to get down river and the support and comfort has been wonderful. We order his true size, 11, and then ordered the 12 because his older waders had thicker booties and made the 11 feel too tight at first. BackCountry was amazing and got us the 12 super fast. He ended up keeping the 11s because the 12 were just too big and we felt like the leather boots will stretch some to accommodate his other waders if necessary. Danner and Patagonia advertise these as boots for a lifetime. Both of these companies are well known for their durability, quality and standing behind their products so we are confident in the investment in these boots. We are going to test that out because he loves them and I don't see him using any other pair after this! The Patagonia X Danner collaboration is a dream come true for fly fisherman and women! So happy we can get them at our favorite outfitter:! Definitely GOAT WORTHY! WORTH EVERY PENNY!
