Yesterday my family and I delivered my shoes to Liz’s friends at the Mary Campbell Center. To be able to have a shoe that works for all is a dream come true! ❤️❤️

Her sister Lizzie, who was born with cerebral palsy and autism, was the inspiration for the self-lacing and inclusive shoe. It features the FlyEase system which allows for easy entry and exit of the foot.
