Shoes.com Insider on Dr. Scholl's
Are you gellin? Almost anyone who has or had a pair of Dr. Scholl's shoes will probably tell you they rank among the most comfortable things they put on their feet. What else would you expect from footwear made by a shoe cobbler turned podiatrist?
Dr. William Mathias Scholl loved feet, or at the very least, loved helping people alleviate foot pain. His career was committed to the science behind footwear and the pursuit of keeping customers comfortable; in his lifetime, he amassed well over 1,000 patented products for foot care. In addition to his business exploits, he helped found the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine outside of Chicago.
With the expansion of the toning market, Dr. Scholl's augmented its product offering to provide sneakers and casual shoes that help individuals tone on the go. That said, the company didn't forget its roots. One of Dr. Scholl's early products was the Exercise Sandal (also known as the Dr. Scholl's Original), a style that enjoyed enormous popularity during the late 60's and 70's and is still a major part of Dr. Scholl's product offering. With Dr. Scholl's, you can expect a timeless look. And, while fashion is subjective and designs come and go, comfort never goes out of style.
