The Shoe That Grows

Innovation and thinking big are two attributes we believe in. This is why when we saw "The Shoe That Grows," we knew we had to support this organization.

With humble beginnings, Kenton Lee set out to create a shoe that could solve a very big problem: Millions of children are barefoot and exposed to diseases and harm. A pair of shoes simply does not solve this issue. Why? Because children grow out of their shoes too quickly. With the help of Portland shoe designers, Kenton created the first shoe that literally grows with a child. This is game changing.

These shoes adjust five sizes and last five years, providing protection and health for children who need it the most. The shoe costs $15 to produce and thousands are already on the feet of children in Africa. We hope you will join us in supporting this incredible effort. theshoethatgrows.org
