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.

Gave my dog blisters

Boots were good quality and did not come off when out walking. After the first day the boots gave him blisters, on the dew claws of both front paws. Might be a sizing error on my part but I measured his feet and ordered as per the guidelines. Won’t use them again, and probably would not recommend. They are a tough, inflexible material which might have caused the problem.


Hi Eleanor, sorry to hear you had this experience. We'd recommend trying boot liners with them if you haven't already, we find this can help especially with issues around the dew claw.

The boots r paper thin! The boots r not worth the money! The boots don’t last a few dogs walks on a concrete sidewalk let a lone a hike in the woods.

Extreme quality but with some caveats

The shoes are very well made, without burrs or badly made seams. However, it is very complicated to identify the ideal size for the dog, especially if you are from another country and do not have a store or Ruffwear representative, which is my case. I'm from Brazil. The shoes were a size bigger than the ideal for my Blue. Another detail is that the entrance of the shoes are exactly on the extra finger. I had to make a set of "gloves" with elastic tapes to avoid hurting her. I understand that there are specific socks for dogs but I'm in Brazil and it's very hot here. Despite the problems I had, I definitely recommend these shoes.

  • Dog's Name Shiva
PAW-FECTION 100000/10

I found out about this brand through a Doberman K9 who uses this when sniffing out drugs in raided houses with glass everywhere (Duke impresses everyone).My Siberian Husky was a little weirded out and walked in a way that my entire family was bawling hysterically lol. Within a few minutes she acted as if it were nonexistent! I use it here an there, for our trails (sadly) have glass on them (tragic), and I'm not sure if the salt used in snowy weather is toxic to pups or not. Shiva gets truckloads of comments on her new booties and the black color matches her coat flawlessly! The measurements are true to their statement, for Shiva's booties fit superbly. I recommend this brand to everyone, and stay true to my word on these being the best out there. They are worth every single penny.

  • Dog's Name Robin
Rubs ankles raw

Not good. Clumsy and painful to wear


We regret to hear that Robin hurt their paws. Every dog is different, so it is hard to know what will work for each one. Often socks, or our Bark'N Boot Liners, are a great fix for pups with sensitive feet. They provide an extra layer that wicks away moisture and protects against rubbing. It is also important to cinch the boots down securely around the ankles to prevent any unwanted movement of the boots. If you have any other questions or concerns regarding Robin's boots or their use please reach out to us. We are happy to help!
