Back in the ’70s, Kork-Ease’s iconic platform-wedge sandals were the epitome of cool comfort. Today, the brand, a division of Greenwich, Ct.-based HH Brown, has remained true to the brand’s signature cork bottoms and vachetta leathers while introducing modern gladiator and flip-flop designs. While the environment may not have been part of the early design story, its homage to cork makes them an eco choice today. Retailing from $115 to $155, the line is set to deliver in January at NeimanMarcus.com and Carl Shoes and Accessories in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
