Kork-Ease

July 26, 2013

HQ Street Style: Krista

Krista, one of our web production designers, gave us a serious case of dress-envy with her nearly-ethereal, mixed media maxi dress. In a stroke of style genius, she added a thick, woven-leather belt and brown wedge sandals—making a classic 1970s look refreshingly modern.

Krista says, “Being fairly short, this dress style helps to elongate my body—especially when paired with some high wedges. To offset florals, I like to pair many of my dresses with a leather jacket. This gives my outfit just the right amount of edge!”

Kork-Ease, the brand responsible for the original wedge sandal, is bringing its production back home. Originally manufactured in Brooklyn, New York–and one of the most iconic brands of the ’70s–Kork-Ease  is now launching a USA-made collection with Nordstrom.

Two of the original Kork-Ease styles – ‘Ava’ and ‘Bette‘ – have been handmade in rich, vibrant colors and materials. Full-grain leather or linen uppers, with hand-washed finishes and artfully wrapped wedges round out the collection and beautifully define the classic silhouette of the original Kork-Ease styles. The perfect fusion of comfort and classic charm, Kork-Ease is the epitome of a timeless, versatile staple. Bringing the production back to the U.S. truly celebrates the core spirit of the brand’s original, unforgettable designs.
