1970 Vintage Wedge Shoes

Turn the clocks back to my teenage years in the 1970s, and you couldn’t turn the corner of any street without seeing someone wearing a pair of Kork-Ease shoes. I can still remember where I bought my first pair of these fabulous wedges. Back then many tried to copy Kork ease sandals, but it was Korkease everyone wanted. No other shoe company could duplicate the lines of this wedge. The essential style and the quality of a Korkease shoe was bar none.

Kork Ease Leather Shoes

The Vachetta Wedge

Vachetta leather is what makes Kork Ease special. Vachetta is naturally tanned leather exclusively in Tuscany, Italy. The Tuscan spring water is what tans the leather to the perfect color and texture that Kork ease defines. Kork ease has always been Ecological, biodegradable and environmentally safe, so is it any wonder that 50 years later this womens spring shoe is as special today as it was when the wedge was born,

Kork ease wedges are untreated and unfinished so In time this Vachetta leathers develop a rich, lustrous patina. A trendy shoe with delicate sophistication, and a one-of-a-kind look is what you will find when you own a pair of korkease shoes. My favorite nude wedge for Spring 2012 is the The Kork-Ease Tracy wedge sandal, read on and you will see why this is the perfect fashion choice this spring/summer!
