We are on a mission to transform how people move and feel in their shoes. Honey Soles Natural Cork shoe insoles are designed to make your everyday shoes feel like a pair of comfortable flip-flops.
From the Manufacturer
Made with sustainably harvested natural cork. Cork molds to the shape of your foot over time. It’s the key to preventing bacteria and fungus from building up in your shoes. Honey Soles gives you the arch support and breathability you need for your favorite adventures, with or without socks.
Cork is an amazing material with a honeycomb cell structure that contains a waxy substance called suberin. Suberin naturally repels fungus and bacteria. The cork wicks sweat away from the feet, while the open-cell foam absorbs any vapor inside the shoe, preventing odor.
It’s simple: Honey Soles are inserted into the shoe, replacing your current shoe insoles. Honey Soles fit best in footwear with removable insoles.
Honey Soles are engineered to help with things like posture, alignment and over-pronation, which is the leading cause of plantar fasciitis.
Honey Soles are durable and shock absorbing. Our proprietary foams help to disperse harmful vibrations that are commonly experienced when walking on hard surfaces.
We’re using friendly materials, including recycled rubber foam and sustainably harvested natural cork. We tracked the origins of our materials and found a manufacturer with integrity.

How did you come up with the idea for this product?
We frequently wear our shoes without socks, and were getting frustrated with the excessive sweating, smelly feet and shoes that were literally falling apart. We researched the insole market, but the best insoles we could find were washable fabric inserts that absorb sweat like a sponge and required frequent washing. There were powders and sprays that eliminated odor, but required frequent use. Plus, none of these offered much in the way of arch support, so at the end of a day of walking around New York, our feet still ached. After understanding the problems first hand, we got to work and after months of testing different materials and prototyping designs, Honey Soles was born.
