Korkers Drops New Wade Lite™ Wading Boot Collection 

Portland, OR – Korkers, the award-winning outdoor footwear brand, is proud to introduce their new Wade Lite™ Wading Boot Collection for the Spring/Summer 2024 Season.  The new collection features two boot styles, Chrome Lite™ BOA® and Stealth Sneaker™, as well as compatible XTRA-BITE™ screw-in carbide cleats.  Designed with ultra-light performance and uncompromising durability in mind, both boots are light as a feather but tough as nails.  Constructed similarly to an athletic sneaker, Wade Lite™ footwear is incredibly light, low profile, and nimble.  

Unique to the Korkers’ line, the new Wade Lite™ Collection features a fixed sole construction (non-interchangeable) incorporating their new Kling-On Rock™ performance outsole.  Kling-On Rock™ is a new proprietary sticky rubber sole compound that is light, flexible and provides positive grip on both dry and wet rock.  The Macro-Lug™ design allows for solid performance on softer terrain such as mud and wet grass, while the razor-siped tread sheds water and provides sure-footed confidence with every step.  Embedded nylon anchor plates allow for retention of Korkers new XTRA-BITE™ carbide screw-in cleats if additional traction is desired.  

“We challenged our design team to develop the lightest weight, highest performing wading boots in the industry and they delivered in spades,” commented CEO Brian Chaney. “Not only did they deliver exactly what we requested, at $149.99 MSRP for the Stealth Sneaker™ and $179.99 MSRP for the Chrome Lite™ BOA® they did so at an unbelievable value to the consumer,” Chaney continued.  Korkers new Wade Lite™ is set to drop March 2024 and will be available for purchase through quality outdoor retailers across North America.
