THE ORIGINAL. SINCE 1953.
More than half a century ago, the Kork-Ease legacy began as nothing more than an idea in Brooklyn, New York. What started as an idea, quickly turned into a new way people though about their footwear. The Wedge was born.
AN INSTANT CLASSIC
Turn the clocks to the 1970’s, and you couldn’t turn the corner of any street without seeing someone wearing a pair of Kork-Ease sandals. Many brands tried to copy our sandals, but none could adequately duplicate our style or success. The Original Kork-Ease Wedge has been immortalized in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Landmark Shoe Collection - an honor bestowed to only 25 styles of footwear all-time.
A NATURAL EVOLUTION
Kork-Ease fashions much of it’s footwear with Vachetta leather to achieve a distinct sophistication. Ecological, biodegradable, and environmentally safe, Vachetta is naturally tanned exclusively in Tuscany. The crisp Tuscan springs possess the only water in the world that can tan the Vachetta leather to the perfect color and texture. Because it’s untreated and unfinished, Vachetta leathers develop a rich, lustrous patina over time. The natural patina showcases a delicate sophistication, and a one-of-a-kind look.
There is nothing us Planet people enjoy more than talking about shoes! When friends and family ask, “what are your favorite brands?” we naturally rattle off dozens of names we love for their own special reasons. Get to know what it’s like in our world of feel-good footwear as we share our experiences with you.
What would we do without Kork-Ease? They were the original makers of the wedge after all! You can thank Kork-Ease for going out on a limb back in 1953 with the vision of a stable heel and a ton of passion. When their idea turned into a reality, the modern wedge was born, a style many have adapted and changed. Yet no one can seem to replicate the quality leathers, unique styling and great colors that come with an amazing Kork-Ease wedge!
