Korkers has been the business of providing rugged footwear for your running, hiking, climbing and fishing needs for over fifty years. The origin of Korkers was inspired by the Rogue River near Grants Pass, Oregon. It was there that the Korkers “River Cleats” were created in the basement of Sherman Smith, the founder of Korkers. He made these river cleats by hand, using strap rubber, nylon cord and carbide spikes. These cleats quickly became one of the favorites among fisherman who were continuously slipping or falling from silted river rock.
