Give it your all in the Excursion for Kids! This deceptively lightweight sneaker is crafted in playground ready prints and colors and features sensory friendly linings, cushioning throughout for all day comfort, and an anti-slip outsole to help keep your precious cargo upright at all times.
Feet are the foundation to our bodies and wearing supportive footwear and insoles is imperative to keeping us balanced while supporting natural foot development. Our pillow soft cushioned insoles immediately ease discomfort while the dual density memory foam provides a personalized fit, simultaneously absorbing shock and reducing the amount of impact to the body.
Kids with hypersensitivities can enjoy comfort from the beginning with sensory friendly linings and a smooth memory foam insole. There are no tags or seams to cause irritation and our zipper guard is soft, smooth, and lies flat. Parents love how excited their children are to put on their shoes, get up, and GO!

These are easy to get on and work well with my son's brace. They seem well made and sturdy.
Well made and beautiful shoe. It's too bad it did not work with my son's AFO's. They were not wide enough or open enough. I am debating whether to return or hang on to these for my younger son.
I have looked and looked for cute shoes for my son to wear with his AFO braces. Everyone kept suggesting Billy shoes, but they are so big and bulky. I kept searching online and found Friendly shoes! I am beyond pleased and so excited that these look like regular sneakers!
The shoes fit with my son’s AFOs but the sole is wearing out after only a week of use. My son has an unsteady gait and uses a gait trainer. I have noticed increased stability using these shoes and his walking looked better. I was disappointed when the sole started falling apart. Otherwise a great shoe and I would definitely continue using them if the sole was more durable.
My son wears AFO’s so finding shoes that will work with his braces is not easy. His therapist suggested I try Friendly shoes. The shoes are great! They are well made, and fit on easily with the rear zipper. What is even more amazing than the shoes is the customer service. The last pair I ordered was out of stock even though I was able to place the order. Friendly customer service emailed me about the problem, and offered me a discount and free priority shipping for my troubles. They even called to follow up and let me know the shoes would arrive before school starts. There aren’t many companies these days that go above and beyond to satisfy a customer. I will definitely purchase from them again!
I buy this shoes for my little son he is 5 years old and he is no walking by him self ,he is using a walker ,and my son is almost running with this shoes ,my son look very comfortable with this friendly shoes .I love it .he is using with orthotics.
We’ve tried several shoes and even various sizes to find the right shoe that is durable for our toddler on the go. These are a great sneaker which is durable since he does a lot of crawling. It’s a great style too so he wants to show them off to everyone. All great essentials for a shoe while also accommodating orthotics.
We purchased these shoes to fit over my son's AFO's. They fit well. They seem to be holding up pretty well (he's a very active 5 year old). However we did have to re-tie both pulls on the zippers, and are hoping they stay now. Also the inside lining isn't fully stitched down a gets caught on the AFO's when removing the shoe, it would be better if this was fully attached, it will likely pull from the stitching soon.
I attended the AOTA conference and saw these shoes. Got excited and ordered a pair. The colors are fun and appropriate for kids. It's easier to put feet inside these shoes vs. Slip on shoes that catch in the back. I liked it so much I ordered a 2nd pair! Customer service is very good and they respond efficiently. I'm also thinking of giving these as gifts for Christmas!
My son loves them. The zipper makes it easy to put on and take off and he thinks they are very comfortable.
