Intellectual Shoe / Intellectual Shoe

Intellectual Shoe

Lacing shoes has been always a challenge for kids. Parents need to teach them repeatedly to let them remember. How about leaving this guidance to the shoes themselves?
Intellectual Shoes have a special painting on vamp which make it much easier for kids to lace them. By following the two different color lines, users can easily recognize the orders of lacing. It is based on a program that teaches children to match cards to enhance their cognitive abilities.
