Waltham, MA (PRWEB) October 28, 2013
PlanetShoes.com, a lifestyle retailer committed to helping people live healthier, more eco-friendly lives, is pleased to include Kork-Ease in their unique assortment of women’s footwear. The brand revolutionized the women’s footwear industry with their invention of the “wedge” heel in 1953, immortalizing the brand and changing the industry for years to come.
Kork-Ease shoes use the highest quality Vachetta leathers to develop beautiful, unmistakable fashion footwear. “With their rich, innovative history and sophisticated shoes, PlanetShoes is proud to carry Kork-Ease,” said Phil Meynard, President of Planet, Inc. “The brand has only evolved since their invention of the wedge, a unique style that has never truly been replicated in the Kork-Ease way”.
PlanetShoes.com is carrying a variety of women’s Kork-Ease, including the popular Michelle ankle boots, sandals, and riding boots.
Founded in 1953, Kork-Ease began as nothing but an idea in Brooklyn, New York. This idea escalated quickly as women around the world realized the wonderful potential of this newfound “wedge heel”. Finally women had the ability to walk all day and stay comfortable in the stylish, trendy heels they loved. By the 1970’s, it was difficult to turn a street corner without running into a pair of Kork-Ease wedges. This brand has become so popular that the Metropolitan Museum of Art added their original wedge to their Landmark Shoe Collection, an award only bestowed upon 25 styles of footwear. While the wedge style brought on their instant success, their high-quality Tuscan Vachetta leather only added to their popularity. This ecological, biodegradable, environmentally safe leather gradually develops into a beautiful patina to keep the shoes always looking beautiful.
