A Shoe That Grows: Man invents sandal that grows 5 sizes in 5 years, helping millions of children

Imagine a concept so simple, yet so brilliant that it will change millions of lives. That basically sums up the idea behind The Shoe That Grows, a sandal designed by inventor Kenton Lee that can actually adjust in size as time goes on, allowing children in poverty to have a pair of shoes to wear throughout their youth.

Imagine a concept so simple, yet so brilliant that it will change millions of lives. That basically sums up the idea behind The Shoe That Grows, a sandal designed by inventor Kenton Lee that can actually adjust in size as time goes on, allowing children in poverty to have a pair of shoes to wear throughout their youth.

The shoes, which come in both small and large sizes, can grow 5 sizes and are guaranteed to last at least 5 years.

From theshowthatgrows.org:

Over 2 billion people in the world suffer from soil-transmitted parasites and diseases. The Shoe That Grows is a better solution to help children protect their feet than just regular shoes, shoes that don’t fit, or no shoes at all. The Shoe That Grows adjusts five sizes and last five years – providing better protection and better health for children.

Anyone can buy a pair, but Lee would prefer if you bought a bunch and sent them to kids who need it most.
