Default korkers chrome. small problem

HI all, I recently wore my new Korkers boots with the boa lacing. I had a small problem with the left boot. I had to retighten it throughout the day. Has anyone had this problem? If so how did you correct it? Other than that, I love them.

Hmm. The fact that it was just the left boot makes me think it was something with the boa crank.

Could be too much lube/oil from the factory is making it slip, or your boots just might be half lemon.

I'd call/email korkers and let them know.

coming from a heavy snowboard background the boa system always pops on me and i have to stop while riding to tighten it, every brand. but i guess snowboard boots do go through more stress than wading, but that is just my experience so i stick to normal laces on every shoe i buy

driftaway - there is a known issue with some Korker Chromes manufactured early this year where they neglected to do a lacing inspection at the factory. Some boots manufactured at that time have problems. The following link provides all the details regarding testing your lacing system for this problem and also provides the detailed method on how to correct the problem should your boots have it.


I tested my Chromes and they were fine, but I know others who've had this problem. It looks like an easy fix if this is what you have. Good luck!
