A shoe that grows

post-image
Sometimes a simple invention can change millions of lives. That?s the goal of The Shoe That Grows, a sandal that can adjust its size, allowing children in impoverished nations to grow up without having to go barefoot. The shoes, which come in catch-all Small and Large sizes, can grow 5 sizes and last at least 5 years. www.theshoethatgrows.org

This is so simple and practical. This is next level of creativity. 10$ for a pair of shoe which would last for more than 5-6 years. This makes me happy. For needy children, a pair of shoes really help them become confident.

Yes- I hope charities like Save the Children can offer these shoes!
