Over 50 years ago on the rugged and treacherous riverbanks of the Rogue River near Grants Pass, Oregon, the Korkers brand was born. Made by hand, using scrap rubber, nylon cord, and carbide spikes, Korkers "River Cleats" were created in the basement of Korkers founder, Sherman Smith.
The functional yet versatile design of the cleat system quickly grew as a favourite among fisherman who often found themselves slipping and/or falling on slippery river rock, and eventually spread to provide traction safety to a number of industrial applications such as roofing and outdoor work on snow and ice. Korkers continues to be bold and innovative. The legendary OmniTrax Interchangeable Sole System provides the versatility to do more (adventure) with less (gear). Interchangeable felts for fly fishing, interchangeable carbide studded outsoles for traction on snow and ice, and an interchangeable trail sole add up to the most versatile and efficient all-terrain, all-season footwear available. For those that crave outdoor adventure, Korkers expands your boundaries.
