Patagonia Yulex Wading Socks


Perfect for minimalist wet wading, our comfortable, durable, neoprene-free Yulex® wader booties are made with 85% natural rubber and 15% synthetic rubber by polymer content. The fold-down gravel guards attach to wading-boot laces with hooks. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

Our renewable Yulex® natural rubber* is tapped from hevea trees that can produce rubber for up to 30 years; it replaces conventional, nonrenewable neoprene.
FSC® CertifiedThe raw rubber comes from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council certified by the Rainforest Alliance — meaning the trees aren’t grown on newly clear-cut rainforest land, like some of the world’s supply.
By replacing neoprene with natural rubber, we’re reducing CO2emissions by up to ~80% in the manufacturing process. Our new solution-dyed linings also reduce CO2 by 96% compared to conventional dyeing.
