Henry Mills: In most versions, you leave him a sign... The glass slipper... Which he uses to find the girl who fits it.
Cinderella: That is ridiculous. Do you know how many girls have the same size foot as me?

History

After Fourth Curse

While Henry riding his motorcycle in the New Enchanted Forest, his vehicle scares a horse pulling a chariot, causing the female rider to be knocked from her seat and onto the ground where she falls unconscious. Henry goes to check up on the woman and immediately notices her glass slippers; making him realize she is Cinderella. When Cinderella is accused of murdering a prince at a ball, Henry aids in her escape, telling her to find him later at the place they first met in the forest. Cinderella makes it there, but after joining Tiana's Resistance, she and her new friend leave on Henry's motorcycle, with Cinderella leaving behind one of her slippers as a sign for Henry to look for her. Henry shows up much later and nearly returns home alone when Cinderella is not there to join him, however, he spots the slipper in time and decides to stay to search for her. ("Hyperion Heights", "The Garden of Forking Paths")

Managing to corner Henry, Lady Tremaine requests the glass slipper from him, with the promise to let him go unharmed if he gives it up. Henry instead tells her he hid it away and uses the opportunity to summon help from his family. A furious Tremaine takes Henry captive in Cinderella's old room, where she orders her daughter Drizella to torture him into revealing where the slipper is hidden and then kill him. Before Drizella can get started, Regina and Hook arrive to save Henry. Regina later attempts a locator spell on the slipper, to no avail, as it seems her magic does not work in this realm. ("A Pirate's Life")

Despite the initial ineffectiveness of Regina's magic, she somehow gets the spell to work, allowing Cinderella to be tracked to Tiana's Resistance camp. Cinderella is surprised by Henry's presence, to which Henry playfully reminds her of the slipper she left for him despite that she herself doesn't believe in signs. ("The Garden of Forking Paths")

During Fifth Curse
As Victoria commences with demolishing Hyperion Heights' community garden to build new condos in its place, Lucy shares her suspicions with Henry about something magical being hidden within the dig site. Lucy, while Henry follows her through the underground tunnel, discovers a piece of her mother's glass slipper. She excitedly believes she can show it to Jacinda to help her wake up from the curse, however, she later gives it to Henry as a reminder he will always find his true love even if he believes she is gone. That night, Henry browses a local cemetery as he is searching for where his supposed family is buried. He seemingly doesn't find anything, and as he pulls out the piece of the slipper from his pocket, he stops in his tracks, seeing the headstones of his wife and child. ("The Garden of Forking Paths")
