‘This wave of independence’

Margarita Noriega, writing for Vox:

These new shoes from Nike are pretty sweet, both in form and function, and they were inspired by a single moving letter from a 16-year-old living with cerebral palsy. Florida high schooler Matthew Walzer was just within reach of independent living, but desperately in need of a shoe he could lace up without someone else's assistance.

So Walzer wrote a letter to Nike CEO Mark Parker asking for help.

Maybe there’s hope for us after all.
