Portland, OR – (October 2019) – Korkers footwear is celebrating a milestone of 60 years in business with the launch of their newest performance wading boot, the Terror Ridge™. Named after the one of the most rugged and challenging sections of Oregon’s North Umpqua River, Korkers new Terror Ridge™ boot is designed to masterfully maneuver through challenging & adverse terrain. Korkers is proud to debut the Terror Ridge™ available in stores beginning in Janurary, 2020.
“Our design philosophy this season was inspired by going back to our roots on the North Umpqua River where some of the most challenging wading conditions on the planet exist,” says Director of Product Creation Jacob Haddad. “Scrambling and traversing across extreme and uneven terrain is the price of admission our core users pay before they cast a line in the water. In order to better meet those needs we have designed the Terror Ridge™ to be the perfect intersection where agility meets support with features that offer a tailored fit and customized support.”
Korkers Terror Ridge™ features a unique and dynamic heel locking system that provides a secure fit at the heel and ankle with just the right amount of give for agile flexibility. The robust protection and support come from molded toe and heel counters, structured collar, and an enhanced EVA midsole resulting in a boot that protects from every angle. The upper features a unique quarter panel that allows water to drain quickly and shorten dry times. The Terror Ridge™ offers guide-level performance and is backed with an extended two-year warranty. This performance package wouldn’t be complete without Korkers proprietary Omnitrax™ Interchangeable Sole System that gives you more traction options than any other wading boot in the industry.
Since 1959, Korkers has created innovative performance footwear designed for the outdoor, fishing, and work markets. 2019 marks a significant 60-year anniversary for the family owned and operated brand. Unique to the industry, Korkers’ proprietary OmniTraxInterchangeable Sole System provides a variety of performance traction options – from felt to Studded Vibram® IdroGrip sticky rubber – allowing outdoor enthusiasts and professionals to maximize traction performance on any terrain and in any condition.
