Patagonia x Danner Foot Tractor Sticky Rubber Wading Boot

Every wading angler has experienced the heart-stopping moment when your foot shifts underwater and your body attempts to prevent you from taking an icy river bath. To minimize these moments, Patagonia collaborated with Danner to create The Foot Tractor Sticky Rubber Wading Boot. It features a Vibram Idrogrip outsole that provides traction on dusty trails, slippery banks, and gravely streambeds, while the full-grain leather and high-denier nylon upper combination protects your foot from abrasive sticks and rocks underwater. Drains on both sides of the boot shed water quickly to reduce the weight you move with each step, and a dual-layer midsole provides cushion and support whether you're trudging through the water or making your way back to the trail.

  • Wade boots made in collaboration with Danner
  • Full-grain leather upper is malleable and durable
  • Synthetic lining slides easily against your bootie
  • Vibram Idrogrip outsole grips trails and streambeds
  • Perforated drains shed water for lighter weight
  • Dual-layer midsole provides cushion and support
  • Speed lacing design promotes easy tightening
  • Item #PAT02VT

Comfort and stability even in fast water

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used these wading boots paired up with the Rio Gallegos Wader and they work great for a long day on the river. First, the boots are incredibly comfortable. After standing and walking across rocky riverbeds all day, my feet felt great! Second, the traction is incredible. I didn't need to add and studs to the rubber soles to feel confident walking across uneven footing in fast moving water. The bases are wide and stable. As mentioned in other reviews, they are heavy, so not the best if you are hiking in to a fishing spot, but for most applications, these would be hard to beat.

Great boots

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got these For my first real fishing trip. I went camping and spend a few days walking up the river relearning how to fly fish. It was my first time in a real wader boot setup. These boots were light and I the grip was great. We were in a section of water that is notorious for is slippery rocks and I never once felt like I was going to lose my footing. This confidence in my footwear allowed me to focus more on improving my casting than planning where my next step was going to be. I had a great time in these boots and hightly recommend them to anyone.

Nice Boots

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Danner is a high-quality bootmaker and Patagonia is a high quality and reputable fishing company. The values that they share are what makes this boot what it is. A nice, high-quality, durable product that does what you need it to do. Granted they are a little heavy, but they stick to rock and gravel surface beds when fishing in rivers and streams. Overall they are great boots and I would recommend them.

Highly Recommended

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These boots marry the quality and durability of Danner and the fishing know-how of Patagonia well. They were comfortable in the water and provided excellent stability while tromping through streams. At the end of the day, they dried out quickly and were ready to go again by morning.

The Boots of All Boots

I've used it several times

These boots are stellar! When I first heard that Patagonia is partnering with Danner on some wading boots, I knew that I was going to get a pair. I am glad I did! These boots have a solid fit with the Patagonia waders and the lacing system is so easy to customize to make sure your foot is sitting comfortably. Then once on they of course have some weight to them, but nothing that isn't manageable. Though it does help having some weight because you find yourself with more confidence in stability when you're on the water. You're not slipping anywhere with these. I'll take it because of how great these are at draining the water and then drying out for the next day of fishing.


Can aluminum traction bars be added to this boot?
