Although the usage of cork in sneaker construction looks cool in many instances, it has not fared so well in its utility. Historically, there’s been a bit of a backlash from consumers regarding the material’s utility but leave it to Vans to sort out a way to make it work. Vans recently introduced the low top “Cork” Authentic which combines iconic style with an all over cork print.
The sturdy canvas upper looks as though it is actually cork material which makes for a more breathable sneaker and mitigates any concern regarding longevity. Paired with metal eyelets, stark white midsole with matching laces, on top of Vans’ signature waffle outsole make for a perfect pair of summer kicks.
You can pick up a pair of the Vans “Cork” Authentic low tops now online at Vans.com for a reasonable $55.00 USD.
