Dr. Scholl was William Mathias Scholl, born on a dairy farm in, Indiana, in 1882. Scholl began attending medical school in Chicago and he received his medical degree in 1904. However, his interest was in shoes and feet,fetishism some might say .to support his studies Scholl had worked in a shoe store, where he became convinced that ill-fitting shoes were responsible for much woe. Even before he completed his medical degree he was granted a patent for a device called the "Foot-Eazer" arch support, and he began his career by peddling his handmade leather shoe inserts to Chicago shoe stores.
Scholl's medical training helped him market the Foot-Eazer. He carried a real human skeleton foot with him on his rounds, and used it to demonstrate the stresses unsupported feet were subjected to. In 1907 Scholl incorporated the Scholl Manufacturing Company, and by 1909 the company had its own Chicago factory. Besides the Foot-Eazer, the company made various footcare products,such as, foot powder, special foot soap, and others.

Very early on,the line was packaged in distinctive yellow and blue logo, a color scheme the Dr. Scholl's line still carries.
