I have the pleasure of two beautiful children so my wife has had to endure two demanding pregnancies! It was thus with some interest that I read today of the launch of a new line of shoes especially for pregnant women. A San Antonio based company, New Life Shoes, says that they are designed to meet the requirements of expecting moms.

According to the company, the new line of shoes allows for foot expansion (both length- and widthwise), and also has no less than five layers of support and cushioning that can be customised. To make things even easier, the New Life shoes have a special strap to allow them to be put on with a single hand.

The first shoe in the range to be launched is an athletic shoe, with others to follow. The retail price is about $80.

Sounds like something my wife would certainly have enjoyed. Will anyone be rushing out to buy?
