    I just got a pair of waders. I need a pair of boots, i am willing to go up to around $250 on pair of boots. I was lookng at the Korkers brand what do yall think of this brand and what other brands are good. Has anybody tried the Korkers with the interchangeable bottoms, if so are they any good.

    Korkers and their products do(by most accounts)manufacture top-notch products;however,the ever increasing presence of invasive species-esp. invasive aquatic plant life has definitely swayed a large number of wading equip. to abandon felt-soled wading/hip boots completely. If you're in the $250.00-range, my advice to you: ANY of Simms Wading Boots! I own a pair of the "Guide Wading Boot" model which are soled with Vibram's StreamTread;prior to those, I owned Simms Guide Series-circa 2000, felt-soled. The traction control (IMO)is far better on ALL bottom structures I've encountered plus, unlike felt soles, the "StreamTread"-being composed of a vulcanized rubber material by Vibram, don't gather ice & snow moreover, they (S.Tread)and it's composition will not allow for transfer of invasive aquatic plant life(and whatever else attached to said plant-life)so, it's a win-win if you choose to go that route. One more consideration; many states are adopting measures/laws prohibiting the use of felt soles. Hope I may have aided you in your quest!
