Cork is one of the most versatile materials in the world. It’s been used in bottle stoppers for wine bottles, bulletin boards, floor & wall tiles and even fishing rods!
This is all thanks to cork’s special properties. It has an internal bubble-like structure, which allows for a high level of impermeability and fire retardation. Cork is also known for its thermal insulation, which helps against extreme environments.
The cork industry is environmentally friendly and sustainable, because only the bark of the cork tree is harvested. This makes it so the trees can live and grow up to 300 years!
Skypro shoes use a special cork inner layer, specifically because of its beneficial uses. Not only does it allow to protect the wearer in hot (airplane tracks) and cold environments (snow or ice), but it also provides ample comfort.
Our cabin crew shoes have proper thermal insulation, thus ensuring a more controlled, mild temperature for lengthy periods of time. This is just one of the many reasons why Skypro has the best shoes for crews, pilots and flight attendants.
