If you're fishing an area where Felt Boots are restricted, but you need a bit more grip than Vibram soles offer, pick up a pair of the Aluminum Bar boots—they're a lot lighter and sturdier than you might think.
These tough, durable wading shoes feature aluminum bars on the soles to provide the finest traction in even the most demanding wading conditions.
Put the bite on greasy boulders and slime-covered cobbles without chewing up boat floors. Instead of the hard-and-sharp traction principle of carbide studs, our new Rock Grip Wading Boot - Aluminum Bars' softer aluminum bars cut through slime, yet conform to rock surfaces for superior grip. The aggressive tread pattern and flat bars also hold well in mud, won't carry moisture like felt and take it easy on boats. The result? Max traction for extreme wading conditions and continued invitations to fish with boat-owning friends. A compression-molded EVA midsole and polypropylene insole/shank combo reduce fatigue and help you stay vertical. Heavily padded ankle support and reinforced toe box and heel counter offer comfort and protection in boulder gardens. There's also a full-coverage, glued and stitched rubber rand and abrasion-resistant toe bumper for bomber durability. Synthetic leather uppers and padded nylon/spandex neoprene tongue cradle your feet, dry quickly and stay flexible. Wide last accommodates a neoprene foot wader; sole is designed to hold fin straps. Aluminum bar replacement kit sold separately.
