3 Ways That Women's Sandals With Cork Footbeds Benefit Foot Health

With the temperature heating up outside, there’s no better material for summer sandals than all-natural cork. This eco-friendly, super comfy, moisture-resistant, and stylish material makes the perfect foundation for your arch support sandals

Whether you prefer a flat sandal for walking or a wedge for formal events like weddings, sustainable shoes made with a cork footbed are a go-to for many women. Below, discover the top cork insoles' benefits for foot health.

Cork Molds to Your Feet to Provide Arch, Metatarsal, and Heel Support

Cork footbed sandals like Perfect naturally mold to the shape of your foot, providing a custom fit for every person. You can spend lots of money on custom orthotics, or you can just choose a sandal made from cork!

With the cork sole forming to every part of your foot, you have a base that allows equal pressure on all points. This means that you will receive excellent arch, metatarsal, and heel support with a cork footbed as the base of your sandal. This is particularly important for anyone who has common foot problems, like plantar fasciitis. If you suffer from the pain of bunions or corns, you’ll love slip-on arch support sandals like Zone that don’t touch the problem area.

Cork Footbed Sandals Absorb the Strain of Every Step

As cork is naturally springy, shoes with a cork footbed provide a soft, shock-absorbent cushioning so every step feels like a dream. Our sandals with cork footbeds aren’t rigid, so they absorb the impact of your foot hitting the ground. This prevents excess strain on your bones and joints that could cause chronic pain or inflammation.

If you already have pain in your feet or knees, might we suggest trying cork shoes to see how they can help? Sandals like Grand Z could not be more comfortable or easier on painful or aging feet.

Another Cork Insole Benefit: It’s Hydrophobic, Preventing Bacteria Build-Up

Many shoe materials trap moisture, which left unchecked can cause an unhealthy environment for your feet. Particularly in the hot summer months, you don’t want moisture to accumulate within your shoe. Besides causing an unwanted odor, bacteria buildup could lead to problems like athlete's foot. Yuck! While this is not a life-threatening condition, it is an uncomfortable nuisance that requires treatment. You should definitely avoid it if possible.

Instead, consider breathable, moisture-wicking cork sandals with arch support, like Grand Z. These cork footbed sandals naturally repel moisture so sweat won’t sink in, even if you’re walking for miles. Without this issue, bacteria cannot thrive. With our arch support sandals that have a cork footbed, your shoes stay fresh and so do your feet! It’s also good practice after wearing any shoes to quickly wipe down the insoles with our refreshing Footwear Wipes.

The durable, all-natural, and water-resistant nature of cork makes it one of our favorite choices for the insoles of shoes in hot weather. This is why our all-natural arch support sandals have a high-quality cork footbed, plus other features for comfort, including soft leather uppers and adjustable straps. You’ll also love the artisanal charm of embellishments on our Portuguese-crafted sandals and all of the fun colors that go with your wardrobe. Step into comfort and style with cork footbed sandals this summer!
