When you think of a service animals for the blind, you likely think of a dog. But miniature horses are very popular as guides and for purposes of emotional support. And blind users value their pets so much that they have gone to far as to design some pretty sweet footwear for their little friends! Everything from running shoes branded as Reebuck and Mare Jordan to fluffy slippers and even some over-the-top cowboy boots complete with spurs!

Implications - While Guide Horses are not commonplace, these sneakers definitely target a niche market that exists. Best of all, the shoes come in a funky design and almost look like a pair of childrens' shoes.
