Children love — crave — independence! But life requires footwear and shoes can be hard for children of all ages or abilities. So we developed the Friendly Force for Kids, a brightly styled zip-on with patented technology, so children of almost any age or ability can do it themselves. Just fold-open, enter, and zip! Children feel proud and helpful when they can put on their own footwear, and it’s a big help to parents and families saving them time and hassle. Easier shoes mean children can focus on the more important things, like learning and playing, and makes your morning routine getting-out the door a breeze. Enjoy!
Children need proper footwear just as much as adults. The developing foot needs support, cushion, and room for natural expansion, yet most kids shoes are narrow, hard, and unsupportive. As parents ourselves, the Friendly team was determined to make kids shoes as well built, stylish, and EASY as our adult shoes that have helped tens of thousands of people. The Kids Force by Friendly Shoes are smartly styled and have all the same features adults rely upon: a wider, friendly fit for natural foot expansion, removable memory foam insoles allowing for extra depth or custom orthotics; smooth, pliable, and comfortable uppers; cushioned, supportive midsole, and patented Easy Shoe Access! MAX GOBILITY for life!
The Kids Force by Friendly Shoes are stylish, cool-kid zip-ons built to accommodate adaptive needs of all abilities children. Why? Because when we meet the needs of the whole community we all win. You don’t need tactile hypersensitivity or sensory aversions as so many children with Autism experience, to appreciate smooth, sensory Friendly inner linings. Comfortable, supportive, quality footwear built for the developing foot are AWESOME no matter a child’s ability level. Removable insoles, which you hardly ever see in children’s shoes, enable parents to customize and fit their children just right regardless of need for extra depth or custom orthotics. At an affordable price point these fun, versatile kicks are truly a (Kids) FORCE to be reckoned with. May the Friendly Force be with you!

My husband is from Australia, that is why I tried them!!! They are so comfortable! I have had plantar fasciitis so I need a shoe with an arch!!! These are awesome! I have 5 colors now! I wish the slides would come to the USA!!!
My daughter recently got new AFOs, and they came with a pair of shoes from another brand. The shoes were large, blocky, and stiff. They were uncomfortable and made my daughter’s feet look huge. Yet, as big as they were, it was really difficult to get them on over the orthotic and zip them all the way around. Those issues were standing in the way of my daughter accepting and adapting to the AFOs. I ordered the Friendly shoes because they’re more attractive and the fabric is flexible. They turned out to be perfect. Because of the flexibility, they’re easy to put on and more comfortable. The sparkles and pink accents also suit my daughter’s sense of style. Only since we got these shoes has she been willing to keep the AFOs on for more than a few minutes. And the price is excellent, significantly lower than other adaptive shoe brands. Will definitely stick with this brand.

Bought these shoes hoping they would fit over my daughter's AFOs and they were perfect! I bought a size up. Top material is stretchy quality zipper. Very lightweight. Going to search for more colors and buy more!
They are very lightweight, easy to slip on, and so far no complaints in the comfort department. My dad, who I bought them for and who has Parkinson's disease, does less walking these days so he wears them more as slippers and can have them on all day. When he does walk he likes that they stay on and it's easy for him to move his feet. With other shoes, he complained of them being too heavy. Satisfied purchase.
These shoes will change my father in law’s morning routine for the better!!! He struggled with putting his shoes on. Keep in mind some people in this age group need to take their shoes off and put them back on several times a day for various reasons. Your company has a great shoe and more people need to know about them! They are great! Thank you!!!
Unisex Force Black
the ease of putting on the shoes is great. I don't put on shoes much but when i do, they are Friendly shoes that make my feet Happy.
Bought these shoes for my mother for Christmas, and they were perfect. The side zipper made putting these on over her hard plastic leg brace much easier. We used to always result to orthopedic Mary janes because they were the only thing we could easily put on her, but these look better and feel better for my mother.
