About Us



Honor and Respect started with an idea in 2018. Current Marion Police Officer and U.S. Air Force veteran Ron Slagle prayed about how he and his family could help first responders and military personnel with the current mental health crisis.

In July of 2019 we were featured on Fox and Friends and the response was very positive. The family came together to ensure the mission of helping our first responders became a reality. It started small with an athletic shoe that was designed here in Iowa to a bigger plan that God had his hand on. This has been an awesome opportunity for our family as it has given us the time to work together and be part of something much bigger than ourselves.

Our goal is to help organizations that share our mission in helping our nations heroes make their mental health a priority. This is bigger than a shoe, it's a passion to serve the people who have served all of us.

Consider the way you can help first responders by purchasing your pair of Honor and Respect shoes.
