#TuesdayShoesday: A Shoe that Grows

This Tuesday, I want to shake things up a bit and share this story I saw on my FB feed this week.

I love shoes.  You love shoes.  We all love shoes.  Just opening up our closets to see our growing collections puts a smile on our face, right?  Right.  And there is absolutely nothing wrong with this!

But sometimes, it's good to think outside the box and put ourselves in someone else's shoes (sorry, but pun intended!)


In striving for the cutest or in some cases, the most expensive, extravagant shoes, we forget that for us, shoes only serve as adornment or status symbols, not for protection or utility.

You may remember the pioneer of this movement: Tom's shoes.  Sure you do...with every purchase made, they donate a pair of shoes to those in need.  Well as you can see from the video, the Shoe that Grows, from Because International takes it a step further by eliminating the need for multiple pairs of shoes that the child grows out of and instead focuses on one pair that expands in size as the child grows....pretty genius, right?

While we may drool over the latest "it" shoes to have, these amazing shoes are the "it" shoes in many communities across the globe.  Love this idea!
