In 2007, inventor Kenton Lee had an idea to invent a shoe that could adjust and expand — so that kids always had a pair of shoes that fit.  The Shoe That Grows was born.

Committed to “practical compassion”, Lee created a shoe that can be adjusted so as to accommodate the growing feet of children. Made of high-quality leather and compressed rubber, these shoes are robust enough for long-term use.

Each pair grows 5 sizes and can last 5 years; they come in two sizes: small (from kindergarten to 4th grade) and large (from 5th grade to 9th grade).
