I remember Kork-Ease wedges and clogs from the 70’s, but they’ve actually been around since 1953. Kork-Ease basically invented the shoe we’re all in love with at the moment, the wedge. In fact, the original Kork-Ease wedge is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Landmark Shoe Collection. (Mental note: must go next time I’m in New York).
Over the years, Kork-Ease shoes have been updated and tweaked, but the basic look has stayed the same. Comfortable, flattering, and versatile, they’re a perennial fashion classic. You can pair them with anything from jeans or flares to a pencil skirt or a maxi dress. Classic Kork-Ease come in neutral colors: black, brown, and beige, so they go with everything!
For more height, you can go with the high Bette wedge, or for everyday, try the Myrna low wedge or the Zamora clog. For an edgy evening look, check out the newer Makayla pump, or the Ryanne ankle boot. Kork-Ease also makes a nice-looking high wedge boot, perfect for fall!
