The cork-bed of your sandals in a boot.
Do you have nostalgic memories of your cork-bed sandals? This Gore-Tex-lined all-leather midweight has a cork footbed that does the same thing: conform to the unique contours of your foot. It takes about half a dozen outings to break in the footbed. Our tester praises the comfort and shock-absorbing cushion of the cork, but warns that an awkward heel fit may rub some hikers the wrong way. Best for medium-width feet.
