FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 2020 — John Fluevog Shoes
John Fluevog Shoes is pleased to announce the release of an upcoming limited edition shoe inspired by British Columbia’s chief provincial health officer — and avid Fluevoger — Dr. Bonnie Henry. Designed with her blessing and in honour of their namesake, The Dr. Henry shoes will also aid in the fight against Covid-19 with 100% of pre-sale profits going to support Food Banks BC.
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 will pre-sell later this month in a Limited Edition colourway to support Food Banks BC. Retail prices will be CA$339 | US$299 | 269€ | AU$459 and the shoe will be available in sizes 5 through 12 (including half sizes). 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’.
