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!

My afos fit very well in them. I have a problem with zippers but the leather tab with the grommet in it make these zippers very doable.
The shoes are well made and my grandson loved the colors. Unfortunately they didn’t fit his braces but I’m sure will find a pair that will work.
These shoes are prefect for me. I wear an AFO brace on one foot and have one hand that doesn't function very well. Tying regular shoes and getting them on is difficult, with my disability. The friendly shoes are so much easier to get on and off.
I have also found the shoe very comfortable.
Love my shoes. Lets me achieve independence.
The staff is knowledgeable regarding the special needs for people using braces.
Great shoes quick service
Used the sizing chart and wound up with the wrong size. The shoes are now in Canada and not worth returning as shipping charges would be more than the shoes are worth. Will consider ordering in the future.
The memory foam in the shoes make them very comfortable to wear. The shoes are wide and I have a narrow foot which will take some time to get used to. I have MS and need to have a hip replaced so these shoes will make it considerably easier to get into and out of. I will definately buy another pair or two when I need them.
As a person with Parkinson’s, getting some shoes on can be a struggle at times. These shoes are much easier to put on with the zipper top!
My teenage son wears AFO braces and it was really challenging to find a pair of shoes that were deep enough, wide enough and look stylish. Friendly shoes have thankfully fit the bill. They are well made and easy to put on. My son does drag his right foot and he has worn out the toe of the shoe twice now, but I don't blame the shoe! The company is responsive to inquiries and I highly recommend!!
