Default Re: Korkers Konvertible Wading Boot???

Just got my pair this week. Found them supper cheap. One of the first things that I noticed was the weight. I had looked at a couple of pairs of Simms and they were heavy as could be. These boots seemed like they weighed about half of what the Simms did. On the stream though they have a totally different feel and ability. The soles can be changed in a matter of seconds allowing for total fredom. I went from rocks to sand to mud with no problems at all. They come with a felt sole and a rubber lugged sole and extra laces. On dry land they fit very nicely in water though it seems as though that Korkers could've made these boots just a little bit wider and added a little more cushion to the insole. After about 3-4 hrs the boots started to get uncoformtable due to the width. Hoping that after some more break in time they'll feel better. If you get a chance to take a pair for a test wade I highly recommend it.
