Thanks, steelguy! That is disconcerting that a company that large wouldn’t stand behind their products more.
Well, I have been a loyal Korkers buyer for over 20 years and have stuck with them through the various changes and upgrades. I presently have 2 pairs of their newest style boots. While wading, one of the two pairs experienced what I would classify as a manufacturing default. The rear plastic knob tore loose that the rubber sole attachment latches on to. I contacted Korkers and they said the boot was "out of warranty" or something to that effect and basically offered nothing. Now, understand, I do a very limited amount of fishing and never misuse my gear. Would I buy another pair? Yes. And the reason is I think they are the best design out there. I just wish they would have done the right thing for an expensive pair of boots.
