Footwear traction is in the DNA of Korkers.
Fueled by stories of harrowing slips and falls, Sherman, the founder of Korkers, set to work carving soles and straps from old tires. He then stapled the pieces together into a lace-up overshoe. Sharp carbide studs completed the prototypes, giving the loggers indispensable traction on slick wood. To this day, Sherman’s ingenious invention stands as a massive innovation that saved an untold number of lives.
