Meet Carter Waugh, age 11, designing better footwear

Techstination feature for Monday, June 8, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   We like to talk from time to time about innovation…and innovators.    Meet Carter Waugh….who recently turned 11…and is the entrepreneur behind Critts…

Well Critts is a combination of a flip flop and a foam clog.  It provides maximum comfort and adventurability.    I trademarked adveturability.  And that means where you can run, jump and climb and just be a kid.”

But he is making Critts for us bigger kids too.  Carter can tell you much, much more about what makes Critts special,    As for the why …

“I was running around in my sandals, climbing trees and they kept on slipping off ..eventually they broke.   I asked my Dad if I could make a Flip Critt…so we talked about it over dinner and we decided let’s do this.”

He’s on Kickstarter now.   You can find more info at www.critts.com.
