We checked in with Anna Weyant a few weeks back from Calgary, and now we head west in Canada to see what our longtime friends in Vancouver are up to during the COVID 19 outbreak. John Fluevog Shoes, always progressively looking at design and philanthropy, has come up with a plan to create both a shoe and charity event on the release of the Dr Henry. 

Today, John Fluevog Shoes released a limited edition shoe inspired by British Columbia’s chief provincial health officer—and avid Fluevoger—Dr. Bonnie Henry. Designed with her blessing and in honor of their namesake, The Dr. Henry shoes will also aid in the fight against Covid-19 with 100% of pre-sale proceeds going to support Food Banks BC.

The Dr. Henry limited edition colourway will be available online only, beginning 4pm PDT (Vancouver time) on Thursday, April 23rd at Fluevog.com

From Fluevog: A constant and outstanding source of knowledge and reassurance during the current fight against the spread of Covid-19, Dr. Henry has deservedly earned admirers for her thoughtful and genuine analysis through this time of uncertainty. One of those admirers? None other than John Fluevog himself. “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,” says John.

The Dr. Henry shoe is available now in a Limited Edition colourway to support Food Banks BC. Part of The Operetta Family, the shoe features patent leather accents, interlacing on the uppers and some of Dr. Henry’s own wise words stamped onto the footsock, reminding us all to "be kind, be calm and be safe."
