Following the launch of an incredibly successful collaboration in the Spring of 2020, Kate Spade New York and Dr. Scholl’s Shoes will debut a second capsule collection on May 1, 2021.
With this two-style capsule, the Dr. Scholl’s Shoes Original Sandal gets a Kate Spade New York twist, adding what is deemed feminine and playful color and print to the classic silhouette. Again, marrying eco-conscious elements with timeless design, the collaboration’s Original Sandals integrate recognizable details from both of the brands, including heart screws and the the Dr. Scholl’s buckle closure. Featuring signature Kate Spade New York design details, the two-piece capsule includes the Original Sandal in a vibrant pink suede and in white leather with black polka dots.
The collection was made using sustainable practices and materials. The chrome-free suede and leather used were sourced through Leather Working Group approved factories, and the soft fabric lining is made from recycled plastic bottles. Additionally, the wood platform of the sandals is made of natural beechwood certified by The Forest Stewardship Council with plant-based corn starch outsoles.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Kate Spade New York and have them as a part of our sustainable journey to make shoes that look good, feel good and do good,” said Katie Moore, Design Director Dr. Scholl’s Shoes. “Following the first collaboration launch last year, which generated such excitement and demand, now seems like the perfect time to add two new cheerful sandals to our sustainable collection for our customers this Spring.”
