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.
Marilyn Monroe famously said, “Give a woman the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world”. And so – we designed the world’s most comfortable pair of emergency shoes. But we also believe that it may require a little bit more than that. We are on a personal and professional journey to define success for ourselves as women, mothers, friends, entrepreneurs and leaders. When women support each other, we can accomplish amazing things.
Rescue Flats is proud to support these amazing organizations that empower girls & women.
Meet our team of fabulous women.

Wedding Date: December 6, 2011
Favorite Wedding Memory: During the reception of our destination wedding, I remember pausing for a moment to take in the fact that 25 of our closest family and friends had traveled such a long way to share one of the best moments of our lives. Everyone was talking, laughing, and eating great food in a beautiful place. What more could I want out of life?
Jeni’s Story: 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.

Favorite Wedding Memory: “I’ve got a feeling” by The Black Eyed Peas had just been released and the DJ played it around 11pm. Everyone got on the dance floor and we danced the night away. It was such a great feeling to be surrounded by so many people I love.
Sarah’s Story: I fell in love with entrepreneurship at a young age. Long before I could spell the word “entrepreneurship” I knew that creating businesses was something I loved to do and something I was good at. In grade six I started a successful t-shirt company that gave me my first taste of running my own business. I loved it and I never forgot that feeling. Fast forward twenty-some years later I finally found my way back that place. I love designing products that help make people’s lives better. I always knew I would end up an entrepreneur – what I didn’t know was that it wouldn’t happen until I was in my thirties and what it would take to get here - a little luck, a few tears, a lot of laughter, and a whole lot of hard work.
