(Revised video) - Can shoes make us think? Designer Brian Tenorio argues that they can. At TEDxXavierSchool, Brian imparts his journey first as a shoe Designer, then as a Designer for development -- an empathic one for progress, for good. Be sure to watch the entire talk. Something interesting might just happen. :)

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
