Our story begins in Nairobi, Kenya in 2007…

One day while out walking with the kids, Kenton Lee noticed that the little girl in a white dress next to him had shoes that were way too small for her feet.

That led to an idea:

“What if there was a shoe that could adjust and expand—so kids always had a pair of shoes that fit?”

After returning home to the United States

Kenton pitched his concept of a “shoe that grows” to several different shoe companies.

Even though none of them were interested, Kenton still continued to believe in his vision. His next step was to assemble a small team, and together they began to build many different prototypes.

Finally, after 5 years of hard work and experimentation, his idea had became reality.

The Shoe That Grows was born!
