The Original Dr. Scholl’s Exercise Sandal was launched in the United States in 1968 with a remarkable impact. By the end of 1972, national sales had reached one million pairs.
Designed with a raised toe crest to encourage a gripping action and shapely legs, this simple sandal’s most outstanding feature is its wooden sole. It was this sole that influenced the chunky shoes and clogs so prevalent during the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.
The Original Dr. Scholl’s® Exercise Sandal from the 1960s and ‘70s returned to fashion again in the ‘90s, appearing on runways and in Vogue magazine. The design remained authentic then, as it is today, and continues as a fashion staple. Its sleek, architectural design complements all types of clothing and has been seen on HBO’s "Sex and the City" as well as in the pages of many fashion and news magazines.
Now a classic style, the Original Dr. Scholl’s® Exercise Sandal continues to be the favorite of fashion stylists, editors and movie stars.
