Honey Soles

A Step Forward

Honey Soles Maker and avid boat-shoe wearer Brad Sunness loved the feeling of going sockless, but not the side effects. Achy feet and not-so-fresh shoes lead him to try many types of insoles and other solutions, but nothing gave him the foot-friendly results he was looking for.

A Step Forward

Honey Soles Maker and avid boat-shoe wearer Brad Sunness loved the feeling of going sockless, but not the side effects. Achy feet and not-so-fresh shoes lead him to try many types of insoles and other solutions, but nothing gave him the foot-friendly results he was looking for.

After researching different materials and prototyping several designs, Brad honed in on cork for its natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. He paired the moisture-wicking material with a layer of recycled rubber foam for better shock absorption and he gave the insoles a contoured design that offers arch support and increased heel stability.

Brad got great feedback from folks who felt like the insoles were custom made for their feet. Requests for a cold weather version soon followed. He created Bear Soles that have all the benefits of Honey Soles with an added layer of plush Australian sheepskin. Either way you go, Brad’s insoles will help keep feet happy with every step.
