    I just knew I should have bought that pair I saw in Ennis a year ago...:mad: Boots are still is good shape, but I've worn what was my third set of felts to the nubs. I had picked up extras along the way, but not having much luck finding replacements; don't really want to pony up $$ for the new boots.

    If anyone's got a pair of these old style felts they want to sell, shoot me a PM.

    ...and if this wasn't already enough of a long shot, would size 14 be asking too much? :D

    Could you scrape the felt off and glue new felt on?

    I have heard that gorilla glue works pretty good at adhering those cut to fit felts to the existing ones... hoping to find some OEM's before doing that.

    The ones in the Korkers garage are the 2.0 soles. And I'm pretty sure that the one pictured is a 1.0 sole.

    Indeed...the original version. I just checked the Korker garage (thanks for the tip RRivera), and they only have gen 2 and later models.

    It occurs to me that I actually saw a pair of 1.0 soles at Outdoor Emporium the other week. I have no idea what size they were, though I don't think they were small. And I have no idea what the price was ($30?).

    They appear to be affiliated with Sportco (Fife) which is down here in my neck of the woods. The only one named Outdoor Emporium I know of is in Seattle (SODO). Bellingham... isn't that a Canadian province? :D

    If you have one in B-Ham and you see any of my style felt soles (size 14) for $25 or less, please picked them up and shoot me a PM. I can pay you via PayPal or check.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Like I said, the pair I saw was at the Outdoor Emporium by safeco. I'd give them a call and see if they are still there and what size they were. They were hanging on a rack by the wader area.

    Missed the Safeco part...which is closer to me than you. I'll give them a shout or just swing in and see if today's the day I should also buy a lottery ticket.

    Thanks Josh!
