Dr. Scholl’s iconic Original Sandal, introduced by the Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw, is launching a limited-edition series of styles with the retailer. The four-pattern collection includes a playful Americana-inspired gingham print, modern white-on-white version, preppy plaid and sexy silver glitter style. The uppers will complement J.Crew’s spring apparel offering.
Original Sandal was introduced by inventor and entrepreneur Dr. William Scholl, who designed a simple wood version that was inspired by a vintage clog he discovered on his travels through Europe. The sandals are available at J.Crew stores and online and retail for $98 for the plaid, white tonal and plaid versions. The silver glitter sells for $108.
The Dr. Scholl’s Original Sandal joins a roster of iconic fashion-comfort styles that continues to resonate with consumers of all ages. The list includes Birkenstock’s Arizona style, the Dansko clog and Clarks’ Wallabee and Desert boot. It’s all about investment dressing in modern terms — taking what’s old and making it new again and again.
