Dr. Henry Shoe

Dr. Bonnie Henry, British Columbia’s chief provincial health officer, has become a household name and folk hero (with a song dedicated to her service!) over the past few weeks as she calmly delivers tragic news concerning new COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and death tolls.

She’s gained admiration for her positive, informational and realistic manner of helping us to understand that we *will* flatten the curve and eventually crush this virus if we all practice physical distancing and stay at home.

John Fluevog is also an admirer: “At times like these, we’re so fortunate to have someone who is calm and comforting but direct, and positive but realistic, informing and educating us day to day. We always like to find ways to help, and to highlight those who are doing good in our world. To hear about and see that our admiration for Dr. Henry was mutual was just a beautiful cherry on top of an already great idea sundae.”

Later this week, the Vancouver-based iconic shoe designer will release the limited-edition Dr. Henry Shoe, part of the Operetta collection, featuring patented leather accents, interlacing on the uppers and some of the doctor’s own words stamped onto the footsock: “Be kind, be calm & be safe”.

Bonnie Henry is apparently a Fluevog fan so this is a win-win for both parties — and for Food Banks BC.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of the Dr. Henry will go to support Food Banks BC, which is grateful to have recently received badly-needed emergency relief during the Provincial State of Emergency currently in effect due to COVID-19.

Pre-sale of the shoe will officially launch next week. If you’re interested in getting your hands on a pair of these, sign up online to get on the mailing list.

We’re hoping to see Dr. Henry model “her” shoes in the future!
