Caulk boots

Caulk boots, calk boots,[1] or cork boots (pronounced "cork" and usually called "corks")[2] are spike-soled boots[3] worn by loggers, tree planters and other forestry laborers in many places,[4] but particularly associated with the lumberjacks of the timber-producing regions of the Pacific Northwest and Canada.[5] They are worn for traction in the woods and especially in timber rafting, and were part of the traditional lumberman's basic equipment, along with axe, peavey and crosscut saw.[6]
