Gadget of the Week – The Shoe That Grows
Published on May 5, 2015
Non-profit group Because International has created a shoe that can grow alongside their owner. Yes, these shoes can grow up to 5 sizes in 5 years, eliminating the need to buy children bigger shoes when they grow older.
This project was initially developed by Because International as a product for children growing up in countries like Haiti, Ghana, and Kenya, where many children are unable to afford new shoes and continue to wear their older shoes that are too small for them. As you can imagine, this causes profound discomfort and damages their growing feet in the long run.
A charity-based product, The Shoe That Grows are asking for donations of $10, which pays for one pair of shoes.
If you're looking to pay it forward, this is a great company to support.
