The KORK-EASE Story
...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.
