So who was Dr. Scholl anyway?
When we come across a shoe, or brand for that matter, with a proper name (ex: the iconic Chuck Taylor, one of my faves), we rarely ask ourselves, “So who the heck was that guy?” Well, inquisitive reader, let me tell you a bit about our hero, William Mathias Scholl – aka, Dr. Scholl.
Born in 1882, young William was one of 13 children. Considering these two facts, I’m going to make some assumptions:
1. He was the recipient of many hand-me-down shoes.
2. Shoes were probably damn uncomfortable back then.
Given these assumptions, I’m led to believe that his desire to increase the life span and comfort of shoes was born out of sheer necessity at a young age; he was born to be a foot doctor!
After working at a shoe store to pay his way through medical school, William became interested in podiatry. He went on to patent a shoe arch support in 1904, and founded the company, Dr. Scholl’s, to sell it. The arch support was a big hit with the public (most likely because shoes were still mighty uncomfortable), and throughout his long career as both a podiatrist and chairman of his company he designed and patented more than 1000 foot aids!
Our hats (and shoes!) are off to you, Dr. Scholl, for ensuring that we all have happy feet.
