Friendly Shoes aren’t just shoes. They’re confidence boosters, independence increasers, and the Adventure is no exception. Playground ready and popular with kids across the board, this classic sneaker really speaks to parents. The front zipper is intuitively easy to use and gives kids that “I did it!” feeling every time.

Cushion, cushion, cushion. One of the features most associated with comfort is cushion – and lot’s of it. Crafted with reinforced cushioning cradling the heel and back of the foot, a padded tongue, and ultra-comfortable memory foam insoles to guarantee comfort on every adventure, we designed this sneaker to keep kids feet enveloped in comfort from start to finish.

We offer hassle-free returns within 30 days of purchase.

Swelling Friendly

From the time we first get up in the morning, all feet change in size. Although we all have differences in daily changes, finally there is an option! Wide fitting and with laces for adjustability, as needed, Friendly offers the opportunity to unzip for comfort, zip-up for compression and stability.

Too-tight uppers are a thing of the past when you slip into Friendly Shoes. Whether due to a humid climate, altitude change, medical condition, or injury: our styles are constructed with a wider fit and adjustable laces to effortlessly accommodate swelling and can be safely worn unzipped.

Airport Friendly

We all know the airport hassle, especially during COVID. With travel coming back from its brief hiatus in 2021, having Airport Friendly Shoes is a luxurious convenience for those going through security.

Our patented ESA technology allows you to zip in/out of your shoes faster than ever before, helping you get through security a little bit quicker. If your feet swell while flying, we’ve got you covered there, too. Simply unzip for immediate relief while in your seat. And best of all? They weigh next to nothing so toss that second pair into your bag.

  • Ortho-comfort technology
  • Light weight (9 oz) non-marking/non-slip outsoles

Diabetes Friendly

A condition that includes over 10% of the US population, proper fitting footwear is extremely important for individuals with diabetes. Extra room can cause friction and this is not good for anyone. The problem is shoes are hard, take time and energy, and life is super busy. Through proper virtual sizing, come to experience the Diabetes Friendly Shoes difference with the attributes below:

  • Soft breathable inner lining
  • Easy open/close pull tab
  • Light as a feather (<9 oz)
  • Nonslip tested outsole
  • Firm midsole
  • Removable dual-density memory foam arch-supporting insoles (designed to increase sensory feedback)
  • Wide fitting with free laces for adjustability

*Friendly Shoes are not diabetic certified, routine skin checks are highly encouraged during initial use

Toddler Friendly

Explore the ease with Friendly Shoes, specially designed for tiny feet! Our toddler-friendly footwear prioritizes your child’s comfort and freedom with practical closures and soft materials. Discover the perfect blend of style and convenience.

AFO Friendly

Let’s face it, orthoses & braces create footwear challenges. Whether it’s getting the shoes on or accommodating the foot while it’s in the shoe, selecting the appropriate shoes for AFOs can be close to impossible. I’m not sure if anything exists?..

Our versatile styles graciously provide appropriate depth and width to accommodate AFOs and feature slip-resistant outsoles for additional stability along with removable dual-density memory foam insoles to easily replace with custom orthotics.

  • Wide (E last)/adjustable (set laces once and forget)
  • Extra-depth
  • Removable insoles
  • Non-slip outsoles

Autism Friendly

You don’t need tactile hypersensitivity or sensory aversions as so many children and adults with autism experience, to appreciate smooth, sensory Friendly inner linings with removable insoles that help customize the fit and feel. Stylish and versatile for every day, these zip-ons are fantastic for meeting the adaptive needs of our autistic community.

Orthopedic & Comfort Friendly

We all want comfort, we all want things that are good for us. Why would we think any differently about our feet, the only part of our body that hits the floor an average of 3-4,000+x/day. Be more active, whether in sitting or standing, and do so with the Friendly difference, shoes that make life easier, without sacrificing style, comfort, or ease.

It’s full speed ahead with Friendly Shoes! Right at the intersection of comfort, style, and orthopedic support, our styles allow you to be more active — whether sitting or standing. Right on trend with easy-to-wear colorways, it’s what’s inside that really counts: removable dual-density memory foam insoles with a contoured arch and metatarsal support to help alleviate foot fatigue, padded cushioning around the heel and tongue for comfort and stability, and a generous toe box to easily accommodate wider widths.

Zipper issues

We've only had them for a week so we're still getting used to them but the zipper isn't easy to pull up so he still needs assistance with the zipper and the zipper doesn't stay up on either shoe....

Matthew W. (Roanoke, TX)
Shoes never came

Waited around a week before I reached out and asked why my shoes haven’t shipped. I was told they would then be shipped priority. Got a call a few days later saying shoes would not be shipped to me and my money would be returned. My daughter has needed these shoes and they were the only ones available in our budget. Very frustrating

Wava Z.
Extremely Happy

These shoes are easy to get on, even over braces that go up to the knee. They’re also very cute and very comfortable.

Nicole S. (Salt Lake City, UT)

Bad ass shoes

I love my really shoes and I want to put them across the world to every Olympic team

Angie R. (St Louis, MO)
Still tight

I have tried a lot of shoes so that my daughter can wear her shoe inserts. These almost work but are still too shallow in the toe area.

Christine C. (Oregon City, OR)
I'm an adult that wears a size 3 & 4 Shoe!

I am a 70+ year old woman who wears one size 3 & 1 size 4 shoe. I am disabled and it is really difficult to find shoes that fit for me. I have found these to be extremely comfortable. I know it sounds funny but I really enjoy the happy pink with sparkles. Not really my style, but they work so well for me and are so comfortable that I just love them. I first purchased your black shoes and moved on to your pink ones. The rest are really just too young looking for me. Thank you.

Answer to prayers❣️💜

I bought my daughter two pairs of the kids adventure platinum leopard in two different sizes and neither one fit. Well, it was around Christmas time and I got sidetracked held onto the shoes for over the 30 days but never worn them and they still excepting my return, and gave me my money back

I did order her third pair of shoes which fit perfectly! It’s the first pair of shoes my seven-year-old said does not hurt her feet at all, not even a little bit she said!

Friendly shoes is the perfect name for this company. The couple who own it are so kind. I’m so grateful that I could find a shoe that doesn’t hurt my daughters feet. I recommend ordering from this company. In fact, I’ve recommended them at Valley children’s in Madera 💜

Laura (Jacksonville, FL)
First time buyer

My daughter loved these shoes the moment they got out of the box. They seem well made, I really liked the sole and style of the shoe. However, the zipper will not stay up and she eventually walks out of them. Customer service is amazing and we were able to try a different style. If your child wears AFOs try the excursion style. They are the best.
