People in the third world have difficulties, because of the lack of essential articles necessary for lives. Especially, shoes are really necessary for them to walk long distances, but it is extremely insufficient in their lives.
For helping them who wear shoes made with things abandoned on the street, a box shoe was developed. It is made with UNICEF's boxes abandoned after relief activities. There is a drawing of a folding and wearable slipper inside the box, so users can easily take it off along dotted lines and simply assemble it, by putting both wings in it. Also, there are different-sized shoes for people of all ages.
