Kork Ease


...begins in Brooklyn, New York in 1953, with the creation of the very first cork wedge sandal. The soft, rich leathers and natural cork heel were the perfect complement to everything from full skirts to capris — ideal for women seeking comfortable resort looks and chic summer style.

In The Sixties the simplicity, comfort, and organic look of Kork-Ease designs epitomized the earthy, natural outlook and optimistic spirit embraced by the youth culture during the decade of love. During the Seventies the platform cork wedge revolutionized the disco-chic look — a cultural icon that would forever be synonymous with the era. Today reflects the heritage of the brand’s original designs, combining clean lines with unique silhouettes that perfect the fusion of past and present.

So pretty AND comfortable!!!
What more can one ask for?!?! i love a little height without toppling over and these shoes are perfect for that...just a little height and high quality without looking orthopedic at all!! I've got more than one!!!
Leather varies by color but nice shoes!
I actually LOVE the olive Shailas I got elsewhere. The leather is soft and the foot bottom a lovely smooth tan leather. Just received the brown ones from here and noticed that it and the black sandals must be a slightly different style of leather, almost a bit distressed, whereas the olive, and I'm assuming gray, are a lovely uniform texture. The olive is a bit lighter in weight and seems a bit more roomy across the top than the brown. So I hope to return the brown and get the gray. Which isn't to say that these aren't beautiful and comfortable sandals; that's why I'm getting a second pair since I've got old points to use! It's more a matter of taste and I like the more delicate look and feel of the olive or gray. The sandals aren't exactly delicate, of course. They are like a sleeker Birkie, without all the super-duper support that actually makes my feet lazy by holding up my arches when I can hold them up myself, using strong feet. I just like the bit of cushioning in the Shailas. That's all I need. The buckles are very pretty, leather-covered, a nice touch. The soles aren't slippery, yay, and the shoes stay on my feet fine unless I'm wearing socks dorky but I've done it : Korkease seem to be great quality all around and I expect these to hold up a long time. A bit pricy but probably worth it...As far as sizing, I'm always an 8 39 euro, avg. width, and these 8 fit perfectly.
Very pretty, minimal with comfort
I have an extremely difficult time with shoes, but these are perfect for spring/summer/around the house/out of the house. I got the pearl-color, and the color is elegant and feminine. Great fit. No problem. Perfect for me.
I absolutely love these shoes. I have trouble with my feet and I've tried many different brands trying to find comfort. I slipped these on out of the box and Walla comfort!
soft, classy looking, comfy
I love the very light sparkle of the off-white strap and the nice touch of making the sandal color-block. The footbed is cushioned enough for the sandal to be much more substantial than a flip-flop. Slingback buckle gives the shoe the right flexibility so your foot can sit further back or forward depending on the length of your feet and toes. My foot is a very standard size 8, neither wide nor narrow, neither flat nor high arch boring : and the size seems right on. I think I'm wearing my slingback in about the middle buckle. There is no cutting into between the toes at all! Leather is luscious, soft, beautiful looking quality. The whole footbed and sole are pretty, actually. There isn't much support I suppose but I don't wear shoes for support, prefer just to stretch and strengthen my feet whenever I can. I'm always kicking my shoes off anyway, on and off my feet in a very casual environment. These could go a bit dressier if I needed and could be comfy for long day on one's feet if you didn't require arch support. My other Kork Ease have lasted forever so I'm sure this one will too.

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!


Kork-Ease shoes are timeless and classic, elegant and sophisticated. They've had such an influence on the shoe world that they were inducted into the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Landmark Shoe Collection, an honor only ever given to 25 styles of footwear.


We have always been super impressed by Kork-Ease's ecological, biodegradable and environmentally safe Vachetta leather. It ages with you, developing a great, vintage, gorgeous finish to an already beautiful pair of shoes.
