Some simple inventions can change millions of lives and that is the beauty of life. Several days ago the inventor Kenton Lee presented a shoe that can grow with the owner and adjust 5 sizes in 5 years. The invention was regarded as sensational, since it will allow the kids from the impoverished countries to grow up without going barefoot. The new shoes come in small and large sizes and if you buy one pair for yourself, you get the chance to buy a package that will be send to the countries and children that need these shoes.The inventor Kenton Lee settled an organization named “The Shoe That Grows” and says that there are “over 300 million children who do not have shoes… and countless more with shoes that do not fit”. When kids do not wear shoes they are susceptible to parasites and injuries. Now with the new shoes that grow, the problem with children walking barefoot or wearing shoes that are not fit will no longer be relevant.
