Grip Trex Adjustable Strap / Opening DetailGrip Trex Bottom Detail

Grip Trex feature two major advancements in dog boots -- an upper portion inspired by human shoes and a high performance Vibram sole. Built on an anatomical mold just like human shoes, the boot's upper maintains a consistent size, shape, and fit. The design and construction ensures the boots are easy to put on, easy to secure, provide continued comfort, and stay on your dog's paws. For the sole, Ruff Wear partnered with Vibram to develop the Grip Trex design which provides unequaled grip, traction, durability, and performance. Together, these two advancements produce a completely revolutionary dog boot from top to bottom.

Ruff Wear recommends checking the closure and fit 15 minutes into activity and periodically thereafter.


  • Protects dog's paws from extreme environments
  • Vibram non-marking outsole with rugged lug design provides flexibility and traction on varied terrain
  • Tightly woven air mesh is breathable while keeping dirt and debris out
  • Reliable, intuitive hook-and-loop cinch closure system
  • Gusset design provides wide opening for easy on and off
  • Low-light visibility with reflective trim
  • Breathable

    Washing Instructions:

  • Secure fasteners
  • Wash in cold water
  • Gentle cycle
  • Mild detergent
  • Air dry

    Measuring your dog's paws is crucial to getting a proper fit. Grip Trex are built to secure around the ankle but below the carpal pad. The boot should have room in the paw area, allowing the paw to spread when bearing weight. Size is based on paw width, not length.
  • Sizes Available: 2.0", 2.25", 2.5", 2.75", 3.0", and 3.25"
  • In-Between Sizes: Choose the larger boot for comfort and performance

    The boots worked great!
    November 4, 2021
    Needed some boots for my lab on a recent trip to New Mexico and these were perfect. We got a great laugh when putting them on the first time with all the high steppin she was doing. Seriously they protected her from all the rocks, stickers and cactus. Just make sure to check periodically to ensure they stay tightly secured. Service and shipping was fast as always! Thanks so much!
    • Fit was perfect, and protected her feet well.
    • Not really what I would consider a con but they can come loose if you don't check periodically.

    Great protection

    We hunt in the DESERT...we are hunting Phesants, Quail and Chucker weekly. Hard on paws but these boots give my lab a break, and a chance for his paws to heal. SKEET recommend!
    • Easy to fit...took Skeet a short time to get used to them. Good price and quick shipping.

    Boots did not fit - they were smaller than advertised

    Needed boots for a bad pad cut on my pups front paw, used the sizing guide on the web site and was in mail a short time later. Boot fit perfectly. Have not put many miles on them to make comments on longevity and wear. Would recommend to a friend.

    Not for the Chukar hills
    February 1, 2023
    These boots work fine on easy trail hikes but we’re useless for serious hunting in the snow. The Velcro tabs do not work well in the snow and I lost one boot within the first couple miles of our hunt. Two of the other boots kept twisting upside down and ruined the fabric top. Ended up taking them off before the hunt was half over.
    • Easy to put on.
    • Will not stay on in snow or hard hunting conditions.

    2? my dog has 4.
    January 18, 2023
    nice shoes, however, 50% lacking. I cant decide whether to run two in the back or two in the front or one front and back, both left or both right at the same time. any way you run them it is only half coverage. Perhaps I am missing something but these in this configuration don't do much and they are too pricey to buy another "set".

    Merchant Response:Often a dog's front and back paws will be different sizes. Only having 2 per set allows you to mix and match for the best fit.
    • nice quality shoe. i'd wear them if they were larger.
    • They come in a set of 2, my dog came with a set of 4.
    By Bob
    Good boot
    November 19, 2022
    So far the boot has performed well!Stays up and on,even without taping through sand and fine gravel.The best part obviously is that I don’t have a thrown pad one on my hard retrieving lab!
    • Built well,
    • Great traction,
    • Stays up.
    • Bought neon green so easily visible
    • Do wish the ankle part of the boot came up a little higher
    • Get the size right or it will twist on your dogs foot..

    March 12, 2022
    The boots fit great and most importantly they stay on. The velcro does loosen up a bit in deep snow. The only issue is that my dog has dewclaws and the boots rub them raw. I am sure there is a way to compensate for this, but I have yet to figure that out. Good quality boots.
    • Durability and design.
    • May not be suitable for dogs with dewclaws.

    Keep those nails short
    February 8, 2022
    Our lab wore through the outsole of one of the boots after about 3 or 4 hour-long runs. He was on pavement for a short time, off leash in the forest for the rest.

    Other than that they are easy to put on, they stay on and give him good protection and traction.
    • Durability

    Great product!

    I hunt in east coast salt water marshes where there are a lot of oysters. (Both live rock and just shells). Hunting there with a dog was a constant battle of cut pads so I had to figure out a boot that would work or stop taking the dog.

    I am happy to report these boots are easy / quick to get on, the dog adjusted to them quickly and they stay on in that sticky marsh mud! Most importantly.. they protected her feet from the sharp shells!

    Very pleased with this product.

    Won't stay on
    November 7, 2021
    I lost 3 of the 4 boots in the fields of South Dakota within 30 minutes. I saved the 4th to remind me not to buy these again. The soles are stiff and the sizing chart measures the width of the dog's pad. The sole, however, is longer than my GSP's pad. I like velcro but there must have been an issue with the hard sole extending beyond the pad that caused these boots to work loose in short order. Too tight and maybe you cut off the circulation. Next time I will try the rubber boots which appear to be a pain in the you-know-what to install.
    • Look Good
    • Won't stay on. Kind of expensive.

    Perfect fit
    October 23, 2021
    The boots fit perfectly and stayed on in the field. I ordered these in black for her back paws and Hunter orange for front the next size up. Unfortunately I mid-measured the front paws because the next size up was not necessary. So easy return of the unused booties. Great grip on bottoms used in extremely dry and cactus filled terrain in Mexico quail hunting. I highly recommend these boots
    • Hi quality. Well made. Great pad material
    • None

    great little boots
    August 8, 2021
    Fit my pups hind feet well. She only wears them while on leash to protect against hot pavement, so haven't lost one. They have slipped minimally and are easily adjusted. Now to get her to quit moon walking when they are on...LOL
    • easy to adjust
    • seem durable
    • easy to measure for sizing
    • nothing so far

    March 25, 2021
    Overall good. I wish the length was a little longer to go up the leg more and Velcro at the top.
    • Durable, strong, quality materials
    • Not long enough. Would be better for my needs if it went more up the leg and Velcro'd higher up the leg.
    By Tim
    Good, but fall off
    March 18, 2021
    Just like other reviews said. They fell off in 20 minutes, never to be found again. Actually nicer than I expected, dog didn't mind them. I tried to make them fairly tight, without cutting off circulation. But when she took off after a deer, came back soon with no shoes. A quick $40. Searched for a couple hours.
    • Good shoes appear to protect feet well. Even against the Arizona cactus', which is my problem.
    • Fall off.

    Good boots for hunting
    January 26, 2021
    We were getting slowed down by stickers (sand burrs) out in the field. Bought these boots to help the dog more focused on hunting. Sizing advice was great. Fit is great. My Musterlander took to them right away.
    • Good fit. Stay on well. Keep burrs our of paws.
    • Dog stepped in some deep muck and got mud in the boots. Was easy to fix though.

    Very impressed with how rugged and well built these are.
    January 13, 2021
    Size was as stated on the ordering page. My Labrador was pretty funny to watch at first but got used to them right away. Great traction and looks like they'll last many years. The price seemed a little high at first but this is the only pair of shoes she'll need; plus she does need four, right? Quality is great and they are worth the price.
    • great traction, great fit and tough
    • none

    Waste of money
    December 21, 2020
    The title isn’t based on the quality because they are well made; unfortunately they were lost within the first 5 minutes. We hunt chukar in tough terrain and I wanted to help my young shorthair who can’t help but go hard save his paws. I had them snug but also at 28 degrees did not want my pups paws going numb. Well, they were gone before he even got on his first covey. Tough pill to swallow at $40 a set and the whole day in front of us. My poor dudes paws were busted up pretty good by days end which is what I was trying to avoid when I bought these.
    • Well made
    • Easily lost

    Red Grip dog boots
    December 20, 2020
    Worked well until got wet and muddy - dogs got into tank for water. Lost one out in the field. I should have checked them for tightness.
    • Protected feet and allowed me to e able to continue using the dogs to work the cattle.
    • Filled with mud when the dogs got a drink and became heavy and moved around on the foot so I ended up taking it -the one boot I had left - off.

    Great Product
    December 19, 2020
    My Lab had to have part of his left front paw amputated. I was looking for a product that would protect his paw when we took our hikes on the farm. He runs through tall grass and wooded areas, in muck and creeks. Without dog boots he would never be able to do what he enjoys. You will need to use some athletic tape around the Velcro straps if your dog runs in heavy tall grass and muck to keep them from coming loose.
    • Material that this product is made of.
    • Vibram soles
    • Cleans easily
    • easy to get on and off the dog's paw
    • I have not found any yet

    Didn’t fit
    September 11, 2020
    I have two dogs with feet almost as wide they are long. The 2 1/2” were the closest fit. The female’s feet are too short and she trips too easily. The males feet are slightly larger so he can wear without tripping but they rub his inside toes. I’ve tried socks and vet wrap which didn’t help. The company needs to put the length of these boots on the measuring guide.
    • Well made
    • Too long

    Review for Red Grip Trex Dog Boots by Ruff Wear -- Set of 4
    April 26, 2016
    Our dog would not stop licking his front paws. They were raw and he could not walk on them and would lick off any medication we put on his paws. I now put the medicine on him and then his boots and off we go. They solved my problem. He is a happy dog and and I am a happy with the product.

    Oddly enough my boy has contact grass allergies. The shoes help limit the contact with the offending allergens and he has quit chewing his paws after going outside. They fit well and he doesn't seem to mind them.
