Children in impoverished countries suffer when they are without shoes. They often go barefoot or wear outgrown shoes with the toes cut open. Some even wear scraps of cardboard on their feet. Without shoes they can get infections through cuts received from the harsh terrain, which gives an open entry for parasites like hookworm and threadworm. As a result, illness and disease can then spread into the rest of their body. The Shoe That Grows fits five sizes in one shoe, and lasts up to five years, growing with the child wearing it. These shoes are made of antibacterial materials, including high quality leather and with compressed rubber on the bottom, very much like a rubber tire, ideal for the rugged environment.
For only $20 per pair, these shoes can be life-saving for children, by protecting their feet.
