A new type of children’s shoes will save parents from rushing to the shops so often - because the shoes grow with them.
Well, that just sounds creepy. To me, anyway, it sounds like you put the shoe on the kid and it becomes a part of the body or something. Eek! Shoes that grow!?
But then, I read further:
The Daily Telegraph reports that Inchworm shoes can extend by one full shoe size - so all parents need to do is adjust the shoe to fit.
This is done by pressing a button on the side of the shoes and extending the toe out to the correct length.
Damn. That doesn’t sound creepy at all. It just sounds weird and uncomfortable. I can’t imagine that shoes that adjust “up to three sizes” could be anything but wretchedly uncomfortable.
When it comes down to it, I think I like the creepy “growing” shoes idea better.
