As the bright neon shades from summer fade away, fall always invites a return to more neutral shades and natural materials — and this season one material in particular that we can't help but be intrigued by is cork. Yes, there is, in fact, a sartorial equivalent to the thing that keeps your wine fresh, and we are all about it.
If you're picturing a classic espadrille sandal, let us stop you right there — designers, like Jimmy Choo and Schutz, have gotten very inventive about how they incorporate cork into their shoe designs. And since cork isn't man-made, it provides comfort and support that other materials don't, which is a total win.
Here, we've put together over a dozen of our favorite cork heels that will fit any budget or style. For the open-toe options, don't be afraid to style them with cool socks or statement tights to wear into the chillier months.
