The Ruffwear Grip Trex dog boots set the standard in paw wear for dogs who hike, bike, run, or explore the great outdoors with their humans.

These high-performance boots feature a rugged and resilient Ruffwear-designed Vibram outsole that provides exceptional traction on varied terrain. Breathable mesh upper provides ventilation and keeps dirt and debris out. Closure system combines hook-and-loop with hardware, cinching around the narrowest part of the dog’s leg to provide a secure fit.

Just as you would with your gear, check closure system and adjust fit as needed 15 minutes into your activity and throughout the adventure.

Grip Trex Pairs

Overall excellent product. They are really durable, I have had no issues with them staying on my dogs feet. Perfect shoes for hiking, and the hot ground. I have to rate this a 4 star because they do affect my dogs dew claw. Something that I hadn't even thought about prior to purchasing them. But we use a little vet wrap and so far problem solved. She already associates them with adventure and loves them. I highly suggest buying two pairs of the "pairs". Give you the opportunity to buy the right size for the back and the front.

Solid Choice

I bought these for my dog to go hiking in the rocky mountains of New Mexico. Once I got the right size they fit well and my dog took to them with little practice. The soles are Vibram and very sturdy.

Love these shoes!

I purchased a set of these for my grand-puppy last Christmas, so when I rescued Matilda, I knew I had to have a set for her. She is quite the fashionable pup in her purple service vest and teal shoes :-) It took a few days of wearing for about 10 minutes at a time for her to get used to them, but she is a pro now! We live in Las Vegas and foot protection is a must if she is to walk anywhere outside after about 10 am. These shoes are a perfect fit for our needs!

Great for hiking and hot pavement

My german shepherd has worn these for years. I started using these after he damaged his pads and ripped a nail on a hike. He doesn’t seem to mind them and even shows excitement when the shoes come out. I would recommend using the sock liners along with the shoes because when dirt gets into the shoe it acts like sand paper between the dogs pad and the shoe. It also protects against wear on the dogs leg where the shoe Velcro rubs. These have been used on short to extended hikes as well as creek crossings and swimming. Around town they work great to protect his pads from the hot pavement in the summer.

Good protection

They work really well. I was very confused on sizing but I guess they are ok!! My dog sounds so cute walking in them ‘tap tap’!! But more important they protect his paws.
