UK based luxury footwear brand, Sophia Webster announced she would be donating 200 pairs of trainers to NHS workers fighting the COVID-19 outbreak on the frontline.

The brand is gifting 200 pairs of its FlyBy trainers to NHS workers on the front line to bring “a little joy to the selfless medics going through these unprecedented times."

The FlyBy trainers usually cost £195 and feature Webster’s signature butterfly wing design.

Sophia Webster said in a social media post which asked her followers to nominate an ‘NHS hero’ in the comments section, “In this time of crisis and uncertainty, I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling helpless with so much out of our control. One way to get through this is focussing my thoughts towards gratitude and positive action."

A number of brands have been showcasing their support and appreciation for NHS staff members during the global health crises, including sustainable footwear brand, All Birds who, yesterday offered 2,000 front line NHS staff a free pair of shoes, for 24 hours.
