Why Choose Rock Treads?


Aluminum is softer than the rock you are stepping on. With just 50 pounds of pressure, Rock Treads discs will mold to each and every surface you step on—providing simply the best wading traction the market has ever seen, with no stream contamination concerns.


Rock Treads do not rust, mold or transfer micro-organisms from one river to the next. We have over 500 miles on our initial R&D set.  A new disc is 1/4 inch and our most worn disc on this set is still over 1/8 of an inch!

Secure Installation

Our patented shape and lock down installation method will assure you a life long hold of rock treads to any type of wading boot or shoe – no matter the brand or boot style, we’ve got you covered.

How It Works

Using a unique compound of milled aluminum, Rock Treads discs grab any rock surface like no other material on the market today. Whether you are worried about cross-stream contamination or want to make any shoe you have an ideal wading shoe, a Rock Treads kit is the perfect, affordable solution for you.

<p>I have been fly fishing for over 40 years, guiding for 30. I have been involved with Fly Fishing Team USA for 14 years, Captain for 4. I have had a lot of time on the water to refine the gear I carry and the equipment I trust. There are certain tools that come along that, once I use them, I know I don&rsquo;t want to spend another day on the water without them. Rock Treads fall in this category. &nbsp;To learn more about Team USA Fly Fishing click here <a href="" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank"></a></p>

<p>Just wanted to let you know that Rock Treads were an absolute God-send in Tasmania for the 2019 World Championships. In our practice week I lost my footing more times than I can remember but after you kindly fitted my boots with Rock Treads I didn&rsquo;t happen once during the WFFC competition. They&rsquo;re a really great product and congratulations on producing something that does exactly what they claim to do!</p>
