Scholl starts to stride ahead

Scholl is a brand name which has fallen on hard times over the years. From 1995, the maker of the famous wooden-soled sandals and corn plasters was at the centre of a bitter dispute with shareholders, but new management, led by ex-Fisons boss Stuart Wallis, is at last starting to lead the group out of the mire.

You don't have to tell your kids to get out of the heat - these clothes will do that for you.

Footwork

Cute they may be, but this season's shoes sure weren't made for walking. By James Sherwood

Rebirth of pool

Pool shoes, those plastic slip-on sandals so beloved by Mediterranean men, have become trendy, proving that nothing escapes the greedy jaws of fashion. Although pool shoes are indispensable when used for their native purpose - to stop you getting verrucas as you pad around the pool sloshing around in everybody's footie bacteria - their status as everyday footwear is questionable. Plastic makes your feet sweat = makes your feet smell. But perhaps whiffy cheesy feet are also trendy, in that Dazed And Confused kind of way. Donna Karan has overcome this problem by making pool shoes that aren't really pool shoes (they have a partly suede top, hence you can't get them wet) but they look like them. However, if you swim, or are intending to go the beach you can't beat a pair of proper pool shoes - you can get them wet, they dry in a second and they protect your feet from hot sand/germs/nasty beach debris.
