Closer Look: Kork-Ease

Established in 1953, Brooklyn-based Kork-Ease has been creating every woman’s beloved wardrobe staple – the cork wedge sandal.  After decades of evolution, their present-day look reflects their tradition for comfortable and lightweight lasts while staying on trend.

Having added boots, pumps as well other categories to their range, Kork-Ease‘s fall collection offers fun and functional styles while staying true to brand identity.  The clog ankle boot continues from last season in new autumn blues.  Pumps offer a wide last for comfort with thick leather stack heels and a slight platform evoking a 70s feel.  A closed toe wedge features kiltie details in camel leather, and the flat boot – our favorite, has a slight wedge outsole with an offset upper shaft and zipper detail.   -Jenn Tello
