Think back to when you were a kid. Do you remember your flip-flops falling off and scraping your feet along the concrete? Guess what? Kids still have this problem.
My guest today took his own footwear problem and decided to actually do something about it. Carter Waugh, 11, is the founder of Critts, a customizable flip-flop clog hybrid designed for running, jumping and climbing. His dad, Ryan, also joins us for the interview.
“This was a real life thing, organically, that came out of the mind of an 8-year-old that was like, ‘Wow!’” – Ryan
“After a while, like two years, I finally perfected it to what I have today. And now I’m selling it and hearing tons of feedback on it … and a lot of people love it.” – Carter
“At first I was just like, ‘It’s a cool idea. I might not be able to do it. I mean, I’m like 8. Who makes a shoe when they’re 8?’ But once I got into it, I started liking shoes. I started liking them a lot.” – Carter
Founder, visionary and overall goofball is a talented 11 year old named Carter “Critt” Waugh. He is a very active leader with an active imagination. He loves sports and is a talented lacrosse attackman. He loves his friends, his family and basically he loves anything that gets him dirty and sweaty. He has been the perfect test subject for his creation.
