Vote: Are Shoes That Grow the Next Big Thing?

By Tonka Dobreva 04.15.2018 interact

 

Because International is a nonprofit that has developed a new children’s shoe that expands up to five sizes. The idea was born after the organization’s founder, Kenton Lee, volunteered in Kenya. He saw that children there wore shoes too small and broken, causing them foot infections. That prevented kids from even going to school. So Kenton teamed up with a shoe development company to create innovative footwear made of leather and rubber that grows with the help of snaps on the sides and a buckle on the back.

So far, the growing shoe project has reached 20 countries, helping thousands of children protect their feet.

    Yes, because people without enough money to buy shoes every year can buy these then never buy a pair of shoes a again.
