Effortless for kids, the Force is a style to be reckoned with. Available in fun and wearable color combos, these casual sneakers are crafted with ultra cushioned insoles, a durable mesh knit upper, and slip-resistant outsole to help protect against slips and trips. Best of all is the patent pending front zipper feature that’s easy for kids of all abilities.
Who has time to fuss with laces these days? As the hustle bustle returns it’s never made more sense to utilize our front zip ESA technology, effectively shaving off the time spent putting on footwear. Quick to zip in and out of, you’ll love stress free simplicity when you’re running out the front door with the dog in the morning or racing to get your kids to school. We’re confident this mesh slip on will turn into one of your favorites!
Kids love the cushy feeling they get with every step they take. We’ve crafted our removable insoles with dual density memory foam to create a comfortable environment within the shoe; the reinforced pillows in the metatarsal, arch, and heel provide cushioned support for developing feet.

Unfortunately the shoes appear to be fine however they don’t fit over my grandson’s braces…have made several attempts to contact for setting up a refund but they will not reply, what a shame not many companies make this type of shoe.
My daughter has to wear afos and these shoes work great with her afos. The shoes are well made, and very stylish. I also like the fact that they are not so big and bulky like some other afo shoes.
Excellent! I was buying 2 pairs of shoes, each a different size ... the cost of shoes has now been cut in half ... THANK YOU!
Finally I don't have to buy 2 pairs of shoes to get 1 pair ! Due to polio as a child I wear 2 different size shoes, my feet are small so I wear children size shoes. It is almost impossible to find something adult appropriate. I do think this company has changed my life! THANK YOU!
We have always loved Friendly Shoes ... now we have a new reason to love the shoes and company ... single shoes enabling us to order a different size for left and a different size for right instead of buying 2 pairs! Much appreciated!
We have two kids with very different special needs, and Friendly shoes work great for both of them! The Kids Force is our oldest favorite, he loves the bright color and that he can easily put them on and take them off on his own!
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!
