Dr. Scholl’s gives women a shoe break with Fast Flats
WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J. Merck Consumer Care on Tuesday announced the launch of Dr. Scholl’s For Her Fast Flats, representing a practical solution for women who need a break from their uncomfortable shoes.
Fast Flats are compact and foldable shoes that fit discreetly in a purse and come with a wristlet for easy storage and portability.

And 80% of women surveyed said that when their feet hurt, it affected their mood.

Fast Flats are fashionable and affordable, enabling women to be prepared for the many scenarios they face throughout the day without having to worry about shoe discomfort.”
