Learn about the problem

Over 300 million kids around the world lack proper footwear due to poverty.

For most of us, shoes are affordable and easy to buy. But there are millions of families around the world who simply cannot afford to buy new shoes as often as their kids need them. And it’s the children who suffer because of that. A child without shoes is much more vulnerable to dangerous infection and disease, has a higher likelihood of missing school, and is more often held back from accomplishing their dreams.

And yet, this problem does not need to exist.

The Shoe That Grows is the perfect solution: it expands 5 sizes and lasts for years, making it the best shoe for kids challenged by poverty. Created with durable materials an intelligent design, it’s built to last for years of walking to school, running, playing, and being a kid.

To-date, 145,486 pairs of The Shoe That Grows have been distributed to kids in 94 counties thanks to the amazing people who take The Shoe to kids around the world. But there are still millions of kids in need.

Here’s how it works

The Shoe That Grows adjusts and expands 5 sizes, and is specifically designed to grow with a growing child. A durable rubber sole and sturdy Velcro straps allow for a snug and perfect fit for years to come.
