Dr. Scholl’s and Kate Spade Re-Up on Last Year’s Spring Collab

On the heels of last spring’s coveted nine-piece collab, Kate Spade New York and comfort shoe brand Dr. Scholl’s have announced a second capsule collection.

The two-style drop will infuse Dr. Scholl’s distinctive original sandal with a playful, feminine twist, featuring Kate Spade’s iconic black-on-white polka-dot-printed leather and a cheerful shade of millennial pink suede. While the minimal offering pales in comparison to last spring’s sizable collection, shoppers can still enjoy the small yet impactful design details—like heart-shaped metal screws—that enticed them in 2020.

The new collection also showcases a roster of mindful materials made through eco-friendly processes, including leather and suede tanned without the use of chrome at Leather Working Group-approved factories, as well as fabric lining made from recycled plastic bottles. The shoe’s wood platform base is made from natural beechwood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, while its plant-based outsole is made from cornstarch.

“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,” Katie Moore, Dr. Scholl’s design director, said in a statement. “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.”

Last spring, former Kate Spade creative director Nicola Glass said she was inspired to pursue the collaboration because of the “effortless style and comfortable silhouette” that have made the wooden sandal a hit since the ‘70s. “It remains a classic for a reason,” she said at the time.

Retailing for $100-$130, the sandals are available at and are slated to hit in May.
