We all loved "Back to the Future," didn't we? All those cool futuristic gadgets, cars that ran on trash, just a world of imagination, not real. Uh uh! Sometimes things actually do come true.
Okay I was not going to do a post today but this young lady just inspired me! You all know how I love my Grandmother, you know she is 91 and has trouble with so many things we take for granted, just a fact of getting old. I am happy to report there is someone else who feels the same. Except she did something.
The inventor of these laces has a grandmother whom suffers from Parkinson Disease and has trouble tying her shoes, so in steps a grand daughter. I see this as a real marvel for the elderly.
Often they are forced to wear ugly Velcro shoes or must wait until someone helps them just put shoes on. The fact that they are elderly often means they cannot tie things properly and are susceptible to tripping.
I just wanted to share this video, so enjoy. Now I have to figure out how to get my grandmother to wear these magic shoes. I can hear her now, "those are too flashy and what other colors do they come in?" :D
I like the light on the top also. Sort of a shoe night light. Can you imagine all these 90+ people running around in these.....I can!
