bad fit with Simms
Pros: light weight
Cons: por fit with sims
Best Uses: good for extended walking
Comments: got these for use with Simms g-3 waders, boots are too high for built-in gravel guards on the Simms waders. hard to pull gravel guards over the boots. also, no ring to hook gravel guards on, can't think why no one considers this.
Falling apart after less than 50 hours fishing
Comments: This is my first premium wading boot, and to start off with it felt really really nice: comfortable, great ankle support, changing soles is a breeze. However, today, after less than 50 hours fishing, I noticed a 1.5 inch tear in the seam on the side of the boot. I noticed it after a short 4 hour trip to the local stream, and the wading in that stream is extremely easy: pebbles, small (fist sized) rocks and the occasional patch of mud. Needless to say I'm very disappointed. I bought the Korkers not only because of the apparent rock solid build and the interchangeable soles, but also because I was tired of the Simms hype. I guess I was wrong. Now I am hoping that Korkers can salvage the situation by showing some of the great customer support I have been hearing about.

Korker KGB Long Term Testing
Pros: light weight and drains really well., Interchangeable soles, Great Durability
Cons: Poor durability of the Vibram Studded IdroGrip
Comments: I picked these boots up in April 2013 as warranty upgrade after I killed a pair of Redsides, Korkers has incredible customer service. Yesterday the KGB boots celebrated their 100th day on the river for the year, I’m not a guide, I just like to fish. From the looks of the boots at this point, I don’t see any reason not to expect another 100 plus days of abuse. I’ve used them in temps from -10 degrees to 80 degrees, both wader wading and wet wading, and have put in numerous 10 mile hike/fish days with these boots. These boots are able to put in some work and keep going. Other than replacing a couple pairs of laces the boots have not had any issues. The Vibram Studded IdroGrip soles are a whole other story. The boots shipped w/ regular and studded Idro Grip soles. As mentioned above Korkers Customer Service is second to none. The Studded Idro Grip is great in concept, but lacking in practice. The rubber is very sticky, add in the studs and the grip is scary good on South Platte granite, unfortunately the studs begin to pop out almost immediately. After a hard day of fishing in Cheesman Canyon over half of the studs were gone from each of the soles. This story repeats itself regardless of the river, as long as there are rocks for the studs to hook up on they shed studs like crazy. I believe I’ve gone through five pairs of studded soles at this point, all compliments of Korkers. Currently the company is trying to rework the studded sole issue, they have stopped shipping the studded Idro’s as replacements; the current fix is Kling-on studs, better durability, but a huge sacrifice in stickiness. Thank goodness for interchangeable soles and felt. If the sole issue gets resolved, I'd up the rating to "five fish".

 Great product
Pros: Comfortable, light weight and drains really well
Cons: None yet
Best Uses: Wadding
Comments: First let me say that I like these boots. They are light , drain quickly and the support of the KGB boot is unsurpassed. I really need it to. The only problem is I wear a size 11 boot so I ordered a size 12. They are a little small in the toe area but because I like everything else about them I decided to keep them for wet wadding and with just thick wool socks they fit perfect. The lacing system works well and they are easy to take on and off. After a week of daily use I find them to be just what I wanted. Great boot
