Bhagwan Das’ adaptive shoes put a spring in the step of people with commonly overlooked disabilities

Bhagwan Das does not have a fancy showroom and nor are there prominent celebrities endorsing his products. Yet, this shoemaker who works out of a congested lane in Hardhyan Marg in New Delhi’s crowded Karol Bagh market is meeting a critical need at a reasonable cost with no fanfare.
Das’ skill lies in the manner in which he makes adjustments to shoes such that they are comfortable and easy to walk in. A critical need for people with disabilities like shortened limbs. Given their limited footwear options, they struggle to find shoes that are comfortable and durable.
