Korkers have been serving the fly fishermen and anglers with their line of Korkers wading boots but now the shoe maker brand looks to take it a notch further with their new creation. Although initially focused around traction, the first shoes created by Sherman Smith called River Cleat made from scrap rubber, nylon cord and carbide studs to win over the treacherous banks of Rouge River in Oregon; the brand has come a long way since that time. Called as the OmniTrax Sole System the outsole of Korkers’s shoes can be changed by attaching a different sole whenever needed.
The interchangeable soles can be applied onto the shoe without even opening it, so it surely is one desirable shoe to have for any conditions or any trail. All you have to do is snap the soles on and walk forward; this will lock the orange tabs into the shoe as you step down and you’ll come to know with the help of a clicking sound and visually also you can see it lock in place. Surely these pair of shoes is robust against any weather or walking conditions and on top of that the new OmniTrax Sole System makes Korkers even more lucrative prospect to consider if you are an adventure freak.
One can choose from the various options including high-friction rubber for conquering difficult trails, rock hopping ones, compressed felt for traction underwater on slippery rocks or either of the two felt with carbide spikes for extremely slippery conditions. The range of winter boots can be chosen from a wide array of options like the StormJack, SnowJack, IceJack and many more which all come in waterproof construction and weigh 200,400 or 600 grams of 3M Thinsulate material respectively. The pricing depends on the model chosen and is anywhere between $140-$200, so go on and choose a Korker for yourself now.
