If you have taken note of provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry’s footwear, you weren’t alone.

John Fluevog himself has noticed Dr. Henry's been wearing his designs and now he's come up with an homage to her.

It's an upcoming limited edition shoe inspired by Dr. 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 per cent of pre-sale proceeds going to support Food Banks BC,” reads a John Fluevog Shoes release.

The Vancouver-based shoe company said what so many other British Columbians have already been talking about — Henry is a constant and outstanding source of knowledge and reassurance during the current fight against the spread of COVID-19.

She has “deservedly earned admirers for her thoughtful and genuine analysis through this time of uncertainty.”

“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,” John Fluevog said in the release.

“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.”

The Dr. Henry shoe will pre-sell later this month in a limited edition colourway to support Food Banks B.C. 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."
