Here's what other sites are saying:
Aluminum bar technology on the bottom of the Patagonia Men's Foot Tractor Wading Boot lets you find grippy traction on even the slickest, algae-ridden rocky river bottoms, cutting down on those moments of limbo when you don't quite know whether or not you're about to take a cold water bath. The Foot Tractor's Clarino synthetic leather upper offers the ultimate in wading durability, and Venergy monofilement mesh panels allow for supreme drainage while cutting back on unnecessary weight. A Texon trimaliminate toe box and heel counter offers a roomy feel that won't squish your toes while providing protection from those unseen rocks and boulders.
Heres the problem: Steel studs, cleats or screw heads are too hardthey skate down rock surfaces like fingernails on a blackboard. Felt wears out quickly, slides on mud and algae and can carry invasive species. Heres the solution: Patagonia's new Foot Tractor Wading Boots with next-generation aluminum bar technology. The new, more aggressively shaped aluminum bars are just hard enough to cut through algae and slime, yet soft enough to conform to rock surfaces. They also grip well on muddy trails, wont accumulate snow and dont hold moisture. In other words, they offer the wading traction you've been looking for all your lives. Made with fast-drying synthetic leather and Venergy monofilament mesh panels, Foot Tractors offer industrial-strength support and protection in a light, comfortable boot.
