Korkers Guide Wading Boots
Aquastealth Sole

Aquastealth high friction rubber is designed to excel in and out of water. The "spongy" rubber provides added durability for hiking compared with a traditional felt sole, and reduced water absorption, keeping them very light in weight. Perfect for scrambling trails, rock hopping, and wading in wet conditions.
Felt Sole (Included)

Compressed high quality felt designed for in a variety of wading conditions. Performs well in wet and slippery conditions and moderately well on extremely slimy rocks, wood, etc. Not recommended for hiking long distances.
Studded Felt Sole

Compressed high quality felt with embedded carbide spikes that protrude approximately 2 mm for use in extremely slippery water conditions. The combination of felt and short carbide studs provides traction on slippery rocks, shale, wood and slab granite.
Studded Rubber

Durable rubber sole with replaceable carbide tipped steel spikes measuring 7 mm in length from the rubber base of the sole. The long, carbide tipped cleats provide exceptional traction in the most demanding conditions. Ideal for fall and winter wading conditions, this sole provides extreme traction on mossy rocks, slimy boulders, slick logs, and ocean jetties.
Trail Lug Sole (Included)

A combination of broad rubber lugs and cleat inspired lugs for performance on trails and off-road, as well as casual use. Lugs are strategically placed to provide traction and self cleaning capability.
Kling-on Rubber Sole

Kling-on high friction rubber is designed to excel in and out of water. The "spongy" rubber provides added durability for hiking compared with a traditional felt sole and reduce water absorption, keeping them very light in weight. Perfect for scrambling trails, rock hopping, and wading in wet conditions.
Kling-on Studded Sole

Kling-on high friction rubber is designed to excel in and out of water. The closed cell technology helps to reduce the transfer of invasive species. The studded rubber provides added traction and durability compared to the traditional felt sole. This sole reduces water absorption, keeping them very light in weight. Perfect for scrambling trails, rock hopping, and wading in wet conditions.

Pros: To change soles is great since I usually have a mile or so back to the truck. The lacing system is also hands down the best.
Cons: I fish small boulder filled spring creeks for brookies and the 1/2 inch of outside sole is hard and I have to remember not to rely on the outside edge for gripping It has caused me to fall a few times. But I see korkers is coming out with a boot with interchangeable sole that covers the entire bottom GREAT GOING

Pros: Great boots. I love the lacing mechanism, I was booted up and out the door, before most people had one set of laces tied. They are a piece of cake to tighten up. Just as easy to pull off after a long day of fishing. Sole switching, not too difficult, but one might try reading the directions or doing a few dry runs to get used to it.
Cons: I don't know, they go wet?

Pros: The Korkers Guild boot is a great product. Ease of use is 5 stars. The soles are simple and easy to change and will not fail or move. The Boa system is the most practical and simple system made. I ordered these boots 1 size bigger to accommodate waders. The Boa system allows the boot to tighten through out the entire foot with no pressure points. I recently wore the boots wet wading and was able to tighten them to accommodate my foot without waders. These boots are also light weight, drain well, and look great.
Cons: No cons so far
Other Thoughts: I spend lots of time researching a product before I buy. I had a few questions and RiverBum provided me with fast accurate answers. Fast shipping. I look forward to future business with them. Many thanks to RiverBum!

Pros: First - the removable sole system in this boot is innovative and a smart design. I fish a local river that only allows rubber soled wading boots (due to preventing the spread of a fish virus)... and everywhere else I fish for trout, I prefer a felt sole. Add to the fact that I wanted the option of being able to fish off slippery jetty rocks for Stripers. Solution? These boots!!! I bought the additional "Studded Rubber" soles for Striper fishing, and the "Aquastealth" rubber sole for the local river I needed, plus... the traditional "Felt" sole comes included (along with a "Trail" sole as well). In the end, I get 3-4 boots for the price of one!!! Also, I love that they are so lightweight and convenience and fit of the steel & lace reel system.
Cons: I found on my boots that occasionally, when either walking to and from the stream, or while wading for an extended period... I needed to tighten up the dial anywhere from 3-8 cranks on the steel & lace reel system to keep the boots snug. Once re-tightened they seemed to stay fairly snug. Not knowing if this was normal or not on this boot, I contacted customer service at Korkers. After trading a few emails, they responded by promptly shipping me out replacement reel assemblies for my boots (without me even asking for them) and asked that I try them out and let them know if I have any more problems. Great customer service! Truthfully, I've only used my boots twice since I received the replacement reels and haven't had a chance to put them on yet. For now, I'm living with the slight inconvenience of have to re-tighten them once in a while... and will eventually try out the new reels.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this boot, even with the slight re-tightening issue which was only a minor inconvenience. Obviously, this company stands behind their product and makes good on customer service. What more can you ask for?

Pros: Very comfortable Lighter weight than I expected Easy to put on and take off
Cons: Not sure what to do if the lacing mechanism fails.
Other Thoughts: I bought these for a trip to Fernie, BC this past August after taking two falls last year on a simlar trip. these wading boots are fantastic. They offered superior support and were easily changed from studded felt to just felt for accomadating wading all day or float trips with a guide. A great buy and worth the money.

Pros: I find the boots to be very comfortable, easy to clean, and dry quickly. I have owned a previous model to these and at the start I was happy but the soles began to pop off only after a few months but the new model holds up well and never even comes close to releasing unexpectedly. I fish in a number of different environments from boulder streams to muddy lakes and they are really good, I also tend to walk a long way to get to the less fished waters and the boots handle it well.
Cons: I found the sizing a bit hard with the first set a fraction small even with going up a size so I ordered another pair 2 times larger than my street shoe and they are perfect.
Great Boots

Reviewed by: Cutthroat on 08/05/2008
Experience Level: Amatuer - Ownership: 4 - 12 Months
Pros: O.K. I'll start it off. I am a big fan of a wire lacing system called 'Boa'. It was invented here in Steamboat by a guy that was sick of trying to lace his son's hockey skates (at least that's how I heard the story while riding up the gondola a few winters back). I have Boa lacing systems for my snowboard boots (yes I am a knuckle dragger in the winter), as does my son. I saw that Korkers now makes a wading boot with a Boa lacing system, so I just got a pair about a month ago. My review of them so far is mostly great. You can 'tie' both shoes at once if you are a bit ambidextrious - that'll get you in the river at least 30 seconds sooner. I like how they snug up just right, without wet laces binding on the boot. Best of all to take them off, there is no un-lacing. You pop out the dial and yank the tongue - and you are out of the boots. I've used the boots about 20 times so far and they are comfortable and holding up well structurally. They also have an interchanging sole system, but I haven't had a reason to swap out to other then the felt soles yet...
Cons: My only nit is that one of the dials popped out of it's holder once. I have it back in, but I don't know if it is a sign of that part being a bit to fragile when being banged around rocks in the river.

Pros: The boots are light and offer good ankle support. Probably very good on rivers.
Cons: The BOA lacing mechanism is prone to jamming from sand. I used the boots for two hours on a local beach and the the lacing reel jammed with sand on both boots. I ripped my waders trying to get out of the boots.
Other Thoughts: These guide boots are completely useless on sand. The lacing system jams and you may have to destroy the boots trying to get them off. Korkers admited that this is an issue but has ignored my request to change the boots for a model with laces.

Pros: comfortable light boot
Cons: the steel laces works well, changing soles takes a little pratice.
Other Thoughts: the only downside was the plain felt soles. I had to purchase some more studded soles for wading the rivers I fish. Other than that, a great boot so far, tell you better after a years hammering on the river.

Experience Level: Amatuer - Ownership: 4 - 12 Months
Pros: The OmniTrax Interchangeable soles offer the utmost in versatility from season to season. Fall Felt soles to Winter Aquastealth soles to Spring Felt studded soles to summer Hiking soles. The Boa Dial Lace System makes it effortless to put the boots on and adjust as the boot and foot swells during wading and makes removal just as effortless even when they are snow and ice covered. Further the lace is stainless steel making it impervious to rust and tarnish and virtually lifetime.
Cons: The boots are somewhat narrow and short. I recommend purchasing 2 sizes larger especially if winter wading with layered socks.
Other Thoughts: The way these boots work and wear I plan on having them as a lifetime investment.

Experience Level: Amatuer - Ownership: 4 - 12 Months
Pros: These are without a doubt the best wading boots I've ever had, and I've owned at least 8 top-end pairs so far in my fishing career. I fish about two days per week and nearly always fish the entire day, from sun-up till dark. The Korker Guide Boots are light in weight, and easy to carry on your feet all day. They are the most comfortable boot I've ever worn. My feet are not tired or aching at the end of the day like other brands I've had. The Boa lacing system on this boot is very tough, fast to get in and out of and so easy to readjust on the water. No more struggling to tie wet laces on the water. The boot is expensive, but once I wore it once, I knew they were well worth the money......I would never fish with any other boot now that I've tried these....Rich
Cons: Price...but if you spend a lot of time in wading boots, it is well worth the money.
Other Thoughts: I liked them so much that I bought my son a pair for his birthday...
