About Dr. Scholl’s Shoes:
William Scholl was an inventor and entrepreneur who created products to comfort feet. In the 60’s, he designed a simple wood sandal with a brightly colored strap inspired by a vintage clog he found on his travels. He set out to make a shoe that was good for one’s health and ended up creating an enduring fashion icon.
Today, his same passion and approach is shared in the collection. Dr. Scholl’s Shoes’ vision is to create innovative footwear with uncomplicated, playful style for a healthier life. We obsess as much about how shoes feel when you slip them on, as how your feet feel at the end of the day. We strive to make active feel at ease. With the belief that function and fashion should always be in perfect harmony, we design for your everyday life in the real world. The Dr. Scholl’s Shoes heritage is one where well being and fashion meet unexpectedly and it’s in the unlikely union where we find inspiration and discover endless possibilities.
