At the 2011 IFTD show, Angling Trade ranked the Metalhead Boots by Korkers the “Best Eco-Friendly Product”. But these boots are not only eco-friendly, they are some of the best wading boots on the market. The Metalhead boot comes with a Kling-On rubber sole and a felt sole. Korkers also utilizes “True Fit” sizing, that allows you to order the same boot size as your street shoe size.
One of the first features that catches your eyes with these boots is the BOA lace system. This BOA system has a super fact tightening knob and can easily be adjusted with one hand. This is a great feature for disabled angler, those who are unable to tighten laces, or just don’t want the hassle of trying to get a perfect fit with traditional laces. The durable and free-flowing eyelets are super durable to handle the wire laces. This system removes pressure point and allows for a super firm fit with no discomfort. And in the water the firm fit translates into support and increased wading ability.

Another stand-out feature is the Korkers’ OmniTrax® 3.0 soles. These interchangeable sole allow you to customize the boots to meet conditions. The options include Kling-On rubber (pictured), studded Kling-on rubber, felt, studded felt, studded rubber, and the felt substitute Svelt (learn more about sole technology at http://www.korkers.com/technology/?p=omnitrax). These soles offer full coverage and snap in place quickly.
I found another huge benefit of these boot it there light weight. A combination of lightweight materials and some serious drainage holes, allow for a full day of hiking and wading without fatigue.
