This sculpture is part of Soles of Haverhill, a community celebration of shoe manufacturing & design’s important role in Haverhill’s history, highlighted by the public display of painted shoe sculptures throughout downtown.

Following the initial fourteen sculptures created in 2009, seven additional "Soles of Haverhill" shoe sculptures—designed to function as whimsical benches—were installed at prominent locations in September 2014, with an eighth-shoe to be installed at a later date upon completion of the crowd-funding initiative.
