“Dr. Schaeffer is as an industry veteran with vast expertise in podiatry. As one of the main doctors on TLC’s series, My Feet Are Killing Me, Dr. Schaeffer shares our philosophy of driving widespread education and democratizing resources to help consumers,” said Craig Stevenson, CEO of Scholl’s Wellness Company. “I am thrilled Dr. Schaeffer will be joining us to help consumers put their best foot forward daily.”

In its continued quest to offer innovative foot care solutions, the company is also expanding its new Sized to Fit insole line with the launch of its new Dr. Scholl’s® Plantar Fasciitis Pain Relief Sized to Fit Insoles. Specifically for men and women suffering from plantar fasciitis pain, these new insoles are clinically proven to help provide immediate all-day pain relief and prevent it from coming back by treating directly at the source of pain. Additionally, the full-length sized-to-fit design ensures the arch support and heel cushioning are placed in the right area for all-day comfort.

“Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common reasons I see patients in my office. In fact, about two million people seek treatment for the condition every year. It’s an extremely painful heel condition that occurs when the band of tissue along the underside of your foot, called the plantar fascia, becomes inflamed from too much pressure or activity over time,” says Dr. Schaeffer. “Dr. Scholl’s® Plantar Fasciitis Pain Relief Sized to Fit Insoles bring back a quality of life for many, by easing pain with a supportive arch that prevents the plantar fascia from stretching and helping them heal in comfort.”

Key features of the new Dr. Scholl’s® Plantar Fasciitis Pain Relief Sized to Fit Insoles include:

  • ShockGuard® Technology: Contoured and properly sized heel cup ideally positions the bottom of the heel to absorb shock, reducing pressure on the heel to treat heel pain at the source.
  • RELYx365™ Foam Cushioning: Hugs the entire foot, delivering optimal cushioning, shock absorption, and arch support to help relieve pain and prevent it from returning.
  • 3D Targeted Arch Support: Helps prevent the plantar fascia from stretching and causing pain.
  • Sized-to-Fit Design: Full-length design cushions the entire foot and ensures the arch support and heel cushioning are placed in the right area for the best fit with no trimming required.
  • Polygiene® Odor Crunch Fabric Treatment: Continuously eliminates odors so both the shoe and insole stay fresh day after day.
