Better than average wading shoe
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've tried 3 or 4 different wet wading shoes on the market and this is the best quality and designed shoe however its still lacking in several departments which hopefully Korkers has address with the new Boxcar shoe to replace this one.
I have owned the Korkers Hyjak for 3 months now: The shoe has been solely used for wet wading fishing trips involving light hiking, wading creeks, rivers and lakes throughout Colorado & Arizona.
Durability - the Omnitrax sole will crack, rip and degrade. The edges are easily prone to these failures. The fabric of the outer toe box appears to also be susceptible to some light tears at this point as well.
Traction - Omnitrax sole is just marginal for hiking traction. Omnitrax sole does not grip well against slippery surfaces.
I would recommend the studded one.
The shoe is very comfortable, lacing system works efficiently and is high quality. The shoe sheds water, debris, sand, etc very well during wet wading. The fit is great, more like a hiking shoe than a wading boot which is important while covering many miles on wet & dry land alike. This is overall a decent shoe but still needs some improvements to be worth it for the cost, it needs to be built to last longer in the conditions it was designed for : ie - wet, mud, rocks, water and these types of fishing conditions.
There is a niche market for this type of wet wading shoe and nobody has made something that can provide the support, traction comfort of a hiking shoe but offer the ability to shed water, sand and provide excellent traction in wet, slippery terrain in creeks/rivers alike.

How do I change out the soles? Afraid to just rip them off. Do you use a screwdriver to disengage the locks?
