Patagonia Rock Grip

Patagonia Rock Grip

New for 2011, Patagonia's Rock Grip ecofriendly boot is made of a synthetic leather upper, sticky rubber sole, polypropylene insole, glued rubber rand, and a nylon/Spandex/Neoprene tongue. The all-synthetic composition makes the boot durable, quick drying, and easy to clean. Our tester noticed the wide footbed immediately. He normally wears a size 11 but was able to squeeze into a size 10 due to the extra space allotted to a Neoprene bootie. The boots come with a package of 23 studs, and identifiable stud receptacles, but our tester wore them without the extra safety net, and had no problems on gravel-bottom Western streams. "The tread is a smart design with great contact points on the balls of your feet and an aggressive outside tread that gives you a wide base of balance," he said. $180 www.patagonia.com
