At SOLE, we're committed to doing all we can to care for our planet. To help us in this aim we’ve turned to an extraordinarily sustainable material: natural cork. In 2008 we launched ReCORK a natural wine cork recycling program that has since grown to be the largest of its kind in North America. We've put countless hours of research and development into creating a way to turn old wine corks into a material that can take the place of harmful petroleum-based foams and plastics in our footwear products. With this incredible material we can provide all of the performance with none of the environmental impact.

But why cork? What's so special about this material that warrants our obsession? In short, cork is naturally durable, lightweight, cushioning and moisture wicking, making it incredibly versatile. It’s also produced through one of the most sustainable modes of agriculture known to man.
