When I first met Dick he was walking around and he had a bit of a limp, and it was because his shoes were full with muesli. So we've made these with all the tender love that we can possibly put into them...
– Karroll Brent-Edmondson presents mentor Dick Hubbard with a new pair of shoes
She was shocked by the poverty she saw in South Auckland. Kids with no shoes, kids going hungry. Karroll decided to make affordable shoes, and in 1991 she set up a footwear factory and called it KT Footwear — Karroll's Team. She hired Māori and Pacific Islanders, including the unskilled and the long-term unemployed ... Karroll used the profits from the business to make hot school lunches for 30 South Auckland schools.
