Proof that sustainability is the new black? Dr. Scholl’s Herzog sneaker — a versatile and eco-friendly design that nabbed the first-ever footwear honor at the Accessories Council’s debut Design Excellence Awards in celebration of the organization’s 25th anniversary.

The shoe beat out fellow finalists Femmes Sans Peur’s Aurora pumps, Frances Valentine’s McCall jeweled velvet heels, Lsil & Co. Inc.’s Joan pointed-toe pumps and Sperry’s men’s Gold Cup boat shoes. Taking the stage to accept the award was Andee Burton, product development manager at the Caleres Inc.-owned brand. Jay Schmidt, president of parent company Caleres’ Brand Portfolio division, was also in attendance at the event, held on Thursday at New York’s iconic Plaza Hotel.
