Portland, OR – (March, 2023) – Korkers, the award winning outdoor footwear brand, is proud to introduce several new innovative footwear products geared for warm weather amphibious adventure. The new Swift™ Sandal, All Axis™ Vented Shoe, Wet Wade Conversion Kit, and Derek DeYoung I-Drain Wading Sock™ collaboration highlight Korkers Spring 2023 assortment.
“As a brand well known for creating high-performance, durable wading boots that provide exceptional traction on wet rock and unforgiving terrain, we have continually heard customers asking for lighter, more breathable options for hot summer days” says CEO Brian Chaney. “We are very excited to bring our new collection of versatile sandals and shoes featuring our proprietary OmniTrax® Interchangeable Sole System as well as complimentary accessories in Spring 2023. Unlike any other footwear on the market, Korkers new sandals and shoes provide all-around amphibious versatility allowing you to customize your traction for summer adventures like hiking, paddling, fishing, boating, camping, and travel. The agility and confidence that these shoes provide on slick, wet rock while using a sticky rubber Vibram® sole, a felt sole, or one of our carbide-studded soles is unmatched. Having the flexibility and versatility to quickly change from a high friction water performance sole to a trail based sole for hiking, street use, or travel is a complete game changer” Chaney continued.
In addition to these incredible new shoes and sandals, Korkers is also introducing complimentary accessories like the new I-Drain Water sock. The sock is a collaboration between Korkers and renowned fish artist Derek DeYoung, who’s colorful Brown Trout Flank pattern is prominently featured on the exterior protective cuff of the sock. Lastly, Korkers new Wet Wading Conversion Kit features an ultra-cushioned EVA insert designed to improve fit and turn any wading boot instantly into a proper fitting wet wading boot or warm water flats boot. Korkers new Spring 2023 product line will be available through premium outdoor retailers beginning in late March 2023.
Since 1959, Korkers® has created functional and versatile footwear for outdoor adventurers. Unique to the industry, Korkers’ proprietary OmniTraxTM Interchangeable Sole System provides a variety of performance traction options – from rock gripping felt soles to ice biting Triple Threat Carbide Studded soles to Vibram® XS Trek sticky rubber – allowing users to optimize traction performance on any terrain and in any condition. Brian Chaney leads the Portland, Oregon-based company’s team of avid fishing and outdoor enthusiasts dedicated to developing product solutions that combine design advances with innovative technology.
