Good people around the world have worked to help those in need by sending used or even new footwear. The reality though for the recipients is that this generosity only comes occasionally. Often the children receiving shoes must use an item that is too small or too big, wearing them longer than the intended proper fit. The Shoe That Grows is intended to fit children and change with their feet as needed. This supports the fundamental need and prevents poor fitting conditions caused by poorly sized footwear.
