This Korkers sizing guide uses direct comparison photos where I put my Korkers Boots next to other popular boots and shoes so you can see the difference in sizing and width. After wearing these boots myself, do Korkers Boots run big or small?
Korkers Boots fit true to size in most cases, but it is important to understand that the fit can vary depending on the type of boot you purchase. The insulated work boots I found to fit true to size. Korkers wading boots sizing will be dependent on the fit and thickness of your neoprene foot socks. I stuck with normal sizing but in some cases Korkers does suggest to size up wading boots. It’s best to read their specific sizing guides available at Korkers.com that help you find the proper fit for all boots.

As I mentioned above, I own both Korkers work boots and Korkers wading boots. I own the Korkers River Ops BOA and the Korkers IceJack Pro.
I found the Korkers IceJack Pro work boots to fit very similar to other winter boots. For example, here is a photo of my Korkers IceJack Pro compared to Merrell Thermochill:
The Korkers wading boots fit looser than the insulated work boots. The extra room helps accommodate for the thickness of neoprene socks (which can vary).
In some cases Korkers still recommends people to size up for wading boots. In the photo below I have my Korkers River OPS BOA wading boots (on the right) compared to my Korkers IceJack Pro Work Boots:
As you can see, the Korkers Wading Boots are a bit longer (they also don’t have the thick insulation which creates extra space).
Still, as I mentioned, there are some instances where sizing up the wading boots may be needed. I ended up sticking with my normal sizing because that’s what felt best on my foot, but depending on your preferences (and thickness of neoprene socks) sizing up may be best.
