Korkers Fisherman's Moc Review

At the start of this year Korkers revealed their new product line, and one shoe caught my eye right away.  The Fisherman's Moc was exactly what I was looking for, a comfortable shoe you can wear to and from the river, around the campsite, or at the local bluegill pond.  I bought a pair and have been wearing them around enough now to give a review with some pretty cool pics.  Check them out...



These shoes were designed to give your feet a rest after a long day of wading, and they do a great job at it.  My favorite part of the shoe is the heel and how it folds down so you can slip them on like slippers right out of your waders, and they are comfortable to wear around like that too.


The tread is Korkers Kling-On sticky rubber and it performs nicely when you're scrambling along a stream bank.  However the sticky rubber treads will inevitably wear out, and it's my guess the upper will outlive the sole.  If they update this shoe in the future I would like to see them put on the omnitrax sole system, or even a fixed hard rubber sole.  I will say after 3 months of regular use the tread is holding up nicely, but I haven't really put a beating on them like I want to.


The sizing length is accurate, however they are a little on the wide side so be aware if you have skinny feet.  The Fisherman's Moc are not for everyone (hence the name), but I love mine and I'm wearing them a lot more then I thought I would... they are just that comfortable!  If you would like to see more info, or get a pair here's the link you need.

I saw a photo of these when they first came out, Boy did they look comfortable!! They seem to be the perfect fit for that quick change from shoes to waders and back again. I hope they make a thin pair in the future, as my feet would need lots of extra socks....but that may work out for the best during the fall through spring tributary season. Nice work Luke!

Awesome idea for a moc. Easy to slip on after a cold day steelheading or kicking around town. Thanks for the review Luke!

I love that the heel of the moc can accommodate heavy winter socks. Perfect for warming up after a long day of solitude and scenery at Burt Dam.
