Campaign Description

Help Rescue Flats launch single pairs of Rescue Flats. Support a local, Alberta-based company and never suffer with your high heels again! Ladies, have you ever walked home bare foot because your high heels were killing your feet? Me too. So. many. times. Rescue Flats are premium foldable ballet flats designed to fit in your purse and rescue you from your high heels. For the past 7 years, Rescue Flats has curated premium Rescue Flats for brides to provide to her wedding guests. We are an Alberta-based company, but we sell our Rescue Flats all over the world. NYC is our #1 market. Every day we receive requests from women asking if they can purchase just one pair of Rescue Flats (we currently sell them in box sets of 20 pairs). When we saw the Build her Business campaign, we thought it would be a great platform to connect with local women and see if this is a product idea that makes sense. Would you buy a single pair of Rescue Flats to keep in your purse? What color do you prefer? Here's your chance.

Empowering women to stand up and be fabulous

For us it starts with helping women get back on their feet with a pair of incredibly comfortable Rescue Flats. But that is just the beginning. In everything we do, we aim to empower women. From the exceptionally talented women we hire to the charities we support, we are focused on empowering women to be the best they can be.

In 2012, Rescue Flats started as a small home-based business.  Today, we sell our premium box sets of Rescue Flats to weddings and special events all over the world! NYC is our #1 market. To date, we have created & shipped over 600,000 pairs of Rescue Flats. What is really important to us about that number, is that it means that over 600,000 women have been able to stand up and be fabulous. For us, that is what it is all about.

We currently offer Rescue Flats in box sets of 20 pairs for weddings and special events. We receive requests from women (all over the world) asking how they can purchase just one pair to keep in their purse. And it has us wondering... should we start to sell our Rescue Flat as single pairs? Would you purchase a pair of Rescue Flats for your purse?

We are excited to explore this opportunity with ATB and Alberta, and learn so we can expand our product line and take Rescue Flats to women all over the world.

We hope you think of us the next time your high heels are killing your feet - and hope you have a pair of Rescue Flats in your purse so you can stand up and be fabulous.

We have been on an incredible journey over the past 7 years. ATB and Alberta have been such a huge support - and we can't thank you enough. We are just getting started. When women support each other, great things happen. To learn more about Rescue Flats, visit us at ca.rescueflats.com

Sarah Befus

CEO

At Rescue Flats, we are on a mission to make the world a better place for women. Since 2013 over 600,000 women have worn our Rescue Flats when their high heels started to hurt their feet. Our part in changing the world may be small, but I believe that it's the little actions that build into big change. When one woman helps another, then she is inspired to help another, and another and so it goes. I started Rescue Flats in 2013 when I was on maternity leave with my 1 year old son and 3 month old daughter. I was inspired to start a company that celebrated women. Since that time, Rescue Flats has grown into one of the hottest brands in the wedding industry and has been seen in weddings and special events all over the world, including The Knot Gala at New York Bridal Fashion Week. We are on a mission to make the world a better place for women and we are just getting started. Thank you for supporting a female-led company that believes that when women support each other, great things happen.

COO

I joined Rescue Flats right after my maternity leave in 2014. After having my son, it became clear that I wanted something more from my working life that my previous career couldn’t offer. I wanted the freedom to be creative, to build on my own terms, to support women, and celebrate something every single day that the world needs a little bit more of – love.

FAQs

How many times can I wear them?

A genuine treat for feet, Rescue Flats are purposely designed for repeated wearings. They are made with love and made to last. And they easily coordinate with any outfit! Our uber-comfy, foldable flats feature tough but tender padded, scuff-proof soles and weatherproof faux leather finish. Just wipe down your Rescue Flats after use, fold and pop them in your purse, weekend-bag or carry-on until your next event! On average, most clients have worn their Rescue Flats 7-20 times before needing a new pair.

Where are you based out of?

Sarah & Jeni work from their home offices in Stony Plain, Alberta & Kelowna, B.C. Rescue Flats are shipped from our warehouses in Toronto, Ontario and Lancaster, Pennsylvania,
