Shoes made from Cork

Vegetarian Shoes have launched a new line of shoes made from Cork; proving once again the variety of shoes out there that do not depend on animal products.

This must be the shoe for every Corkonian who has county pride. You can take the Shoe out of Cork but you can’t take the Cork out of the Shoe.

The shoe is described as “Innovative, finely sliced, real cork, backed onto a breathable fabric backer made into a unisex casual lace-up shoe. Made on a good fitting last, with padded insole, tongue, and collar for comfort. Lined throughout.Very grippy sole pattern with cork particles moulded into the ‘caramel’ rubber.”

Each pair has a slightly different design, due to the nature of Cork.

The innovative shoe comes from the highly respected shoe manufacturers Vegetarian Shoes. A company who was established in England in 1990 and has come a long way since. They are often credited as being “the original animal friendly footware”.


The factories where Vegetarian Shoes are manufactured all operate within EU employment laws. As Vegetarian Shoes say “It is our company practice that the shoes be as people-friendly, as well as [non human] animal-friendly as possible.”

If you’re not interested in wooden shoes, then don’t despair, check out their wide collection on the links below; from shoes, boots, jackets, hiking boots, belts and more for both men and women this company has something for all tastes.
