My name is Henry Lee Bryant Jr. and I am owner of Five Toes Down. My brand was inspired by a motorcycle accident that I was involved in on October 30, 2016 by no fault of my own that resulted in me becoming a right leg below knee amputee. Born September 7, 1982 in Savannah Georgia and currently reside in the same city of Savannah. I have always been very active and involved in the lives of others by my daily life and the jobs I have worked. Everything from peer counselor at Savannah Runaway Home/Chatham County Health Department, Kroger, Macy's, United Distributors, UPS, Coca-Cola, Family Dollar, Wal-Mart, Dollar General, Publix and a few others. Customer service has been a big part of my life and I always strive for positions of management to help make work more of a fun environment. I figured if I was going to be in one place for 8 hours or more then lets enjoy it. If you have worked with me then you know what I mean.
The accident left me in a state of devastation and turned my life upside down and the only explanation was, "you were in the wrong place at the wrong time." My physical appearance was depressing to me at the time, my emotions were all over the place, my spirit was broken, my relationship failed and I just felt alone. I never knew anyone that went through what i was going through or anyone living as an amputee regardless of how they became part of that group. It seemed the more I tried to fix my situations, the more they failed or became worst than before. So I started doing little projects to lift my spirits and that lead to my first book The Devil Knocks But God Answers and then I wanted to reintroduce my self to the world because I'm still me; and Five Toes Down was born.
The logo represents amputees and the ones that love and support them. The hand and the foot represents a lost of a limb because their are many types of amputees and the arrow down is for those that are by your side that love and support you no matter what. I want my experience to be your inspiration and know that no matter what you go through in life, you are not alone and you can make it out your situation one step at a time with Five Toes Down.
