Korkers SnowJack Boot Review

6 comments / Posted on / by

The first impression I got pulling the SnowJack out of the box, is these boots were like extreme foot armor. They were boots you would want to strap on to make your last stand in, reach the top of a ambitious summit, or go into a lengthy battle with. The SnowJack boot brings a whole new meaning to the phrase, “Built like a brick shithouse”. In fact, it looks pretty clear to me that the designers at Korkers did everything in their power to make sure the SnowJack will outlive you. I’m being for real here. I thoroughly examined the boot and there’s nothing on it that has subpar quality. The best way two understand what I’m talking about, is breaking the SnowJack down into two parts. The lower half of the boot is built with an ironclad design that’s ready to chew up and spit out whatever terrain you throw at it, while the upper half of the boot is fitted with a waterproof / breathable leather bootie that’s tough, yet flexible enough to keep you nimble and mobile. This two part working team design gives you ultimate protection an durability without jeopardizing the boots functionality in the field. Even if you somehow manage to where out the soles, don’t get your panties in a wad. You can simply replace the sole for $24.99 and you’ll be good as new, ready for the next thousand miles of adventure. Heck, I forgot to mention Korkers already provides you with two Omnitrax soles with your purchase. You’ll get an aggressive rubber lug sole, and the IceTrax sole with both carbide studs and rubber lugs. As you can see, it’s going to be a very long time before you have to worry about purchasing new soles, and you’ll be ready to quickly change out your soles if conditions change on the ground.

Here’s the bottomline, the SnowJack boot is is a great all around winter boot. Korkers design team found a way to design a boot that’s tough enough to perform flawlessly in extreme multi-sport winter activities, but comfortable enough that you won’t think twice about making them your everyday winter footwear. Even better, there’s no break in time. Straight out of the box with some wool hiking socks, I walked in them in for a week in all sorts of outdoor terrain, and I’ve never in my life been farther away from getting a blister. Try that with some of the other boots on the market. The 400 gram Thinsulate insulation will keep you confident stepping outside in freezing temperatures, and on those slushy rainy days, you’ll find yourself smiling with your 100% waterproof design.

At MRSP $159.99 Korkers brings you the highest quality in an extreme winter footwear at a price that will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Have you looked at the price of high-end winter boots lately? Do me a favor and Google winter hiking boots, and you’ll immediately see prices well over $250 bucks, some pushing $300 after tax. I think that’s as far as I need to go, explaining to you how much your getting for your money. As for the icing on the cake, you’ll always get award winning customer service from Korkers. They bring a whole new meaning to words, “The customer is always right”. When you support them by purchasing Korkers products, the Korkers staff makes a point to always have your back 100%. That’s a company worth doing business with.

For those who don’t know, I’m one of Korkers Hardkor Fans. Rest assured though, when you come searching gear reviews on Gink & Gasoline, you’re only going to find products that we endorse and know you’ll be happy using in the field. Functionality and quality are deal breakers, and if we aren’t satisfied with the performance of the products, you won’t find us doing a gear review on them, period.

  1. I’ve been wearing these boots daily since Santa dropped ’em off on the 25th of December. Awesome comfort right from the box and have not soaked through. The studded soles are fairly aggressive although they will work great for any packed snow or ice situation.

  2. Kent,
    Thanks for the heads up. I hadn’t run across these yet and they look great. Heck, I could wear these for work too by the looks of them and that’s about a cheap a retread you’ll find anywhere.

  4. I found a pair of these boots for a great price this winter and have had them out several times since and love them. With the felt sole ban in my neighboring state (which is closer than most trout streams in West Virginia), I was looking for a pair of rubber sole waders and these area a really great versatile pair to have. Thanks for the recommendation!
