Creative Director of Dr. Scholl’s Shoes, James Sowins, and Alan conceived the collaboration over dinner in New York City with the goal of creating limited edition footwear that is both classic yet modern and fresh. The collection, which is now available at Steven Alan store locations and the website, consists of two women’s styles and a men’s style available in two colors ways. Each style for both women and men are a contemporary take on the iconic Dr. Scholl’s Shoes wooden exercise sandal.
In case you’re not familiar with the iconic Dr. Scholl’s sandal, it is a style that he designed back in the 1960′s, which features 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.
