Dreaming is believing! Make children shoe independent with the Kids Force. Featuring durable, stretchable uppers, a supportive midsole, cushioned (and removable) insole, and patent pending zipper that’s easy for all abilities. Available in six stellar color combos, these are perfect for your littles! Kids Force UNITE!
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 every 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!

Ordered these for my son, who has CP and tall, chunky feet. He says they are very comfortable and he easily puts them on himself. They are lightweight; may not be winter shoes, but great for dry weather! We shall see how durable they are as he is rough on his shoes. He has worn them most days for about a week and a half so far.
I wear braces on both my feet and I can actually get these shoes on over them. I can unzip them and slide my feet in. Thank you for making my life easier.

I am 71 years old and had polio as a child and have two different size feet. I always have trouble finding shoes that fit and are comfortable. These shoes are great! These shoes are both and are lightweight too.
Totally loved the shoes and support from the team. It was great to find out that one of the owners is from Hawaii. True ALOHA spirit from Friendly Shoes.
Aloha and Mahalo!
This shoe works perfectly for my daughter. The zipper is great and the toe box is wide enough to fit her UCBL’s. Thanks Friendly Shoes!
The shoes I ordered have never arrived I’ve had two pairs in the past and they work amazingly well with my a. F. O. I wish you offered better looking shoes for women. Prettier colors like your kids shoes have.
Ever since I discovered Friendly shoes they have become my Ride or die! I refuse to wear anything else! They require NO breaking in. They are like walking on clouds from the moment I put them on. I officially own over a dozen pairs and wear them everywhere! I love these! I love the mint color! They are too cute! Thank you friendly shoes. As an MS patient, my hand have really taken a beating. I can't really tie shoes very well anymore and the zipper is everything!!!!! Thank you. I can never thank you enough for changing my life. And here's a picture of me wearing mine after walking 3 miles through Arlington National Cemetary in Washington DC!
Super friendly staff! My daughter had a stroke and now wears a brace so getting the correct size was a little tricky. They allowed me to return shoes until everything was great. Size, style and color all made my daughter happy.
The most comfortable sneakers I’ve ever worn great for walking I love them
