Kenton Lee has created “The Shoe That Grows” specifically for children in poor nations. The shoe can expand up to five sizes in five years and it’s a very clever concept.
They are designed to last at least five years, with five different adjustable settings.
This idea first dawned on Lee while in Kenya.
He noticed a little girl at an orphanage with shoes that were way too small for her feet.
He realized this was a greater issue that many kids in developing countries dealt with.
Since they grow up in environments without proper sanitation, they’re subject to soil-transmitted diseases and parasites.
That’s why the compassionate man formed a team to help over 300 million children across the world that don’t have shoes.
That number doesn’t even include the children who have shoes that are far too small for them.
The Shoe That Grows offers an affordable, long-term solution for kids in developing countries.
