Patagonia Foot Tractor (Built by Danner)

After another spending another day fishing in the Patagonia, built by Danner, Foot Tractor boot I am officially getting a pair of my own. The comfort, stability, and grip that this boot provides are all unmatched by any other brand of wading boot. Beyond these great features the Danner boot looks sexy all while carrying less water weight than the majority of other boots. This Patagonia boot is built to last a lifetime and can even be resoled when any other boot would need to be replaced. Made right here in the U.S.A by a company that makes boots for our nations military, the Foot Tractor is a boot an angler can trust in any fly fishing situation. Find the felt, sticky rubber, and aluminum bar all in our Bozeman fly shop. Here is the Patagonia and Danner wading boot story.


  • 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
  • 1950 g (68.8 oz)
