Shoes are important in our lives. However, most of African people are living without shoes and their bare feet which are damaged are exposed to the danger. If they properly wore shoes, Death rate of them would decrease by 20% than now. Our product, Hug shoes, is made to help African people's bare feet to be protected. ‘Hug Shoes’ means that young leaves got shape and covered a barefoot with all cuts and bruises. Hug shoes are able to control the size of them. We can adjust the size of them by controlling the upper part of the shoes. The package which is used to wrap shoes is easily thrown away. We suggest the two ways to reuse the package.
