What if Patagonia and Danner got together to create a world-class wading boot? Good news. They did.
Meet the new River Salt and Foot Tractor wading boots from Patagonia. They were co-developed with Danner Footwear, and each pair is handcrafted by Danner in Portland, Oregon.
Both the River Salt and the new Foot Tractor boots are tough, durable, and incredibly comfortable. But the most innovative part of this collaboration is a wading boot that can be totally re-crafted. For the first time in the fly fishing industry, we’ve got a wading boot that can be rebuilt from the top down.
Danner’s stitch-down construction allows the boots to be completely resoled and re-crafted in Danner’s facility in Portland, Oregon. This effectively extends the lifetime of a wading boot beyond anything we’ve seen before.
River Salt Wading Boots
The River Salt boot is lightweight, nimble and incredibly tough. It was specifically designed for backcountry use, wet wading and saltwater flats fishing. It’s equally at home slipping across a flat toward tailing bonefish, or boulder hopping along your favorite stretch of wilderness pocket water.
The River salt is both durable and waterproof, using innovative full-grain leather that’s designed to perform in salt and fresh water. The 1,000-denier nylon uppers withstand abrasion, while the quick-dry lining manages moisture with ease, making these some of the most comfortable wet wading boots we’ve ever put on.
Danner rounds out these boots with a military grade, high performance midsole, and a Vibram Megagrip rubber outsole. This provides stability and grip on wet or dry surfaces.
Foot Tractor Wading Boots
The Patagonia and Danner collaborative effort on the new Foot Tractor Wading Boots has resulted in some of the most durable and comfortable wading boots in the industry. The Foot Tractor comes in three different sole options. It will be available in a sticky rubber using Vibram Idrogrip, a felt sole, and Patagonia’s award winning aluminum bar option.
Like the River Salt, the new Foot Tractor wading boots are constructed with specially designed full-grain leather uppers that perform both in and out of the water. Similarly, the tough-as-nails nylon upper is matched with a quick-dry lining to move moisture away from the skin and out of the boot.
With a highly stable rubber midsole and a military grade lower midsole, this boot provides an awesome blend of stability and comfort. Add to that a sticky Vibram sole, felt, or aluminum bars, and you’ve got a boot that’s truly built to last a lifetime.
