Carbon negative footwear.

District is the realization of a long-standing dream: to harness the potential of the wine corks we collect to create footwear that's not only stylish and comfortable, but also has a positive effect on the environment. This groundbreaking line is more than just carbon neutral; it's carbon negative.

 
 
 

Carbon negative? What's the deal here?

In short, ReCORK's operations remove more carbon from the atmosphere than they add to it.

Recork Process

Recycled wine corks reduce fossil fuel reliance by replacing petroleum-based rubber and foam with a natural, sustainable material.

Recork Process

Cork is recycled through a low-energy process in a hydro-powered facility and the shoes are made in a nuclear-powered facility with zero CO2 emissions.

Recork Process

The total greenhouse gas emissions from District's production are only around 0.74 tonnes; less than a single cork oak tree absorbs in its lifetime.

Recork Process

ReCORK has planted 8,000 cork oaks to ensure our carbon footprint is offset far beyond carbon neutral to carbon negative.

Made from
25 recycled wine corks.

Using recycled wine corks extends the life of a natural, sustainable and renewable resource that would otherwise be discarded, to offer a carbon-negative alternative to environmentally-harmful petroleum-based foams and plastics.

Firm vs Cushioning

This footwear boasts a firm, orthopedic built-in footbed. A common misconception is that soft insoles are better because they provide more cushioning. That’s not necessarily true! Just as a firm mattress can be better for your back than a soft one, so too a firm footbed with proper orthopedic shape and a deep heel cup offers more comfort by supporting your feet where they need it to take the strain off your muscles and joints.

1 Month review.

I have been using SOLE products for years, mainly the inserts. I am a soldier that regularly wears combat boots for long periods. I have used Han Wags, Lowes, SWATs, Solomon, and Salewa boots over the years. I was originally recommended SOLE as I had a bad case of plantar fascitis around ten years ago. I have not had any foot problems since. So I decided to purchase a pair of shoes that I could use when not in combat boots. Its been about a month, mainly using them due to the recent COVID restrictions, and they have been performing flawlessly. Just as the insoles in my boots, they fit well, despite my right foot is slightly wider than my left. The shoes required no break-in period, and I walked 5 km when I first received them just to feel for any pinch points or friction areas. And none were found. The material is a breathable mesh which has been perfect for the warmer days. The laces are secure and have not come undone unnecessarily. The shoes come with a pair of white laces as well (not my style). Bonus - the wife thinks they look great on me, and I have received compliments from others. (Secretly, I think my wife is tired of me being in boots all the time). The verdict - Buy a pair, you will not be disappointed.
