It’s true that cork is great for making bulletin boards, plugging up wine bottles, and illegally filling baseball bats, but it also has a life as a sneaker material. Vans is the latest brand to hop on the cork sneaker bandwagon, with the Vans OTW Prelow “Cork.”
The Vans OTW Prelow “Cork” combines the recognizable Vans silhouette with an authentic cork upper, joined by eyelets, laces and an inner lining all in black. And the whole thing sits on a patented Vans Ultracush HD sole. The sneaker is part of a whole line of “Cork” shoes by Vans OTW, all with an emphasis on comfort and the lightweight construction that cork allows.
You can check out the Vans OTW Prelow “Cork” in the gallery up at the top of the page, with a few photos via Hypebeast. And watch for both the Prelow “Cork” and the rest of the “Cork” Vans OTW collection in select retailers very soon.
