Korkers K-5 Bomber Wading Boot
Portland, OR (July 2014) – The name says it all. The K-5 Bomber is designed to withstand the
rigorous demands of professional guides and hardcore anglers who are on the river day after day.
With a special focus on durability & support, Korkers created a 5-Ply Fit System designed to lock
the foot in place and provide supreme support around the ankle. Friction-free, rolling lace guides
and lace-lock allow for bi-zonal tensioning; providing a truly customized fit. The K-5 Bomber
offers an enhanced EVA midsole, protected stitching, and a 3D molded toe and heel cap which
ensure durability and longevity. Hydrophobic materials and internal drainage channels reduce
excess water weight and promote faster dry times.
Last, but certainly not least, the K-5 Bomber offers our hallmark adaptable traction outsole
system, OmniTrax®, for customized, condition-specific traction performance, and extends boot
longevity since soles can easily be replaced. The OmniTrax Interchangeable Outsole System has
proven itself to be an indispensible feature for any angler working multiple river systems, any
angler that travels, and any angler concerned about spreading invasive species.
“The K-5 Bomber, Korkers’ latest performance wading boot, raises the bar in terms of durability,
fit, and support. We work closely with a network of professional guides from around the world to
help develop, test, and refine our products. New innovations like our 5 Ply Fit System, another
industry first from Korkers, are the direct result of input and feedback from professional guides
with thousands of hours on the water. The K-5 Bomber strengthens what we feel is the most
complete and performance packed line of wading boots the fishing industry has ever seen,” says
Brian Chaney, CEO and Director of Sales.
