Orthopedic & Comfort Friendly

We all want comfort, we all want things that are good for us. Why would we think any differently about our feet, the only part of our body that hits the floor an average of 3-4,000+x/day. Be more active, whether in sitting or standing, and do so with the Friendly difference, shoes that make life easier, without sacrificing style, comfort, or ease.

It’s full speed ahead with Friendly Shoes! Right at the intersection of comfort, style, and orthopedic support, our styles allow you to be more active — whether sitting or standing. Right on trend with easy-to-wear colorways, it’s what’s inside that really counts: removable dual-density memory foam insoles with a contoured arch and metatarsal support to help alleviate foot fatigue, padded cushioning around the heel and tongue for comfort and stability, and a generous toe box to easily accommodate wider widths.

Airport Friendly

We all know the airport hassle, especially during COVID. With travel coming back from its brief hiatus in 2021, having Airport Friendly Shoes is a luxurious convenience for those going through security.

Our patented ESA technology allows you to zip in/out of your shoes faster than ever before, helping you get through security a little bit quicker. If your feet swell while flying, we’ve got you covered there, too. Simply unzip for immediate relief while in your seat. And best of all? They weigh next to nothing so toss that second pair into your bag.

  • Ortho-comfort technology
  • Light weight (9 oz) non-marking/non-slip outsoles

Swelling Friendly

From the time we first get up in the morning, all feet change in size. Although we all have differences in daily changes, finally there is an option! Wide fitting and with laces for adjustability, as needed, Friendly offers the opportunity to unzip for comfort, zip-up for compression and stability.

Too-tight uppers are a thing of the past when you slip into Friendly Shoes. Whether due to a humid climate, altitude change, medical condition, or injury: our styles are constructed with a wider fit and adjustable laces to effortlessly accommodate swelling and can be safely worn unzipped.

Toddler Friendly

Explore the ease with Friendly Shoes, specially designed for tiny feet! Our toddler-friendly footwear prioritizes your child’s comfort and freedom with practical closures and soft materials. Discover the perfect blend of style and convenience.

Diabetes Friendly

A condition that includes over 10% of the US population, proper fitting footwear is extremely important for individuals with diabetes. Extra room can cause friction and this is not good for anyone. The problem is shoes are hard, take time and energy, and life is super busy. Through proper virtual sizing, come to experience the Diabetes Friendly Shoes difference with the attributes below:

  • Soft breathable inner lining
  • Easy open/close pull tab
  • Light as a feather (<9 oz)
  • Nonslip tested outsole
  • Firm midsole
  • Removable dual-density memory foam arch-supporting insoles (designed to increase sensory feedback)
  • Wide fitting with free laces for adjustability

*Friendly Shoes are not diabetic certified, routine skin checks are highly encouraged during initial use

AFO Friendly

Let’s face it, orthoses & braces create footwear challenges. Whether it’s getting the shoes on or accommodating the foot while it’s in the shoe, selecting the appropriate shoes for AFOs can be close to impossible. I’m not sure if anything exists?..

Our versatile styles graciously provide appropriate depth and width to accommodate AFOs and feature slip-resistant outsoles for additional stability along with removable dual-density memory foam insoles to easily replace with custom orthotics.

  • Wide (E last)/adjustable (set laces once and forget)
  • Extra-depth
  • Removable insoles
  • Non-slip outsoles

Autism Friendly

You don’t need tactile hypersensitivity or sensory aversions as so many children and adults with autism experience, to appreciate smooth, sensory Friendly inner linings with removable insoles that help customize the fit and feel. Stylish and versatile for every day, these zip-ons are fantastic for meeting the adaptive needs of our autistic community.

What amazing selections and colors

I would have given 5 stars, but the fit isn't quite good enough for my boy's feet. We ordered a 5, but he could easily walk out of them. We ordered a 4, and his toes are still almost at the end. He learned that he can wear them if he wears 3 pair of socks. That sort of eliminates the breathability. Now I have 2 pair of shoes that he cannot wear because his heels slide out, but he loves them.

Amazing with AFOs!

Awesome shoes, super lightweight, fits with my son’s AFO on one foot while super comfortable for his other foot. He did note the zipper slides down on the AFO foot but loves them.

Haven’t yelled since we got the shoes

My grandson is on the spectrum. I’m learning how to better communicate with him and support his growth. We’re always yapping at him to get his shoes on and let’s get going. I have foot issues myself and was looking at the Friendly site. I thought of our struggle an my ongoing search for comfort. I thought about my grandson and our yapping at hm to get his shoes on and also how-quickly he took them off when he arrived somewhere. I decided to give these adaptive shoes a try. When we got his new adaptive shoes, I thought they may be too different. But, really, they are not. He tried them, showed me he could do it himself and we stopped yapping at him to get his shoes on. He just puts them on, he can do it! a positive thing for him. Just picked him up from a busy day of school. He’s napping on the couch with his shoes on!

Shoe review

Hello. My sons shoes are really nice. The material is durable which is what I was looking for. Unfortunately he won't be able to use with his leg brace because it fits a tad tight. But I'm going to keep the shoes so he can use then next year on the days he needs a brace break. He wears a AFO brace on one foot so he ideally needs to different shoe sizes. He normally wears a 2Wide on the Right and a 2 regular on the Left feet. Like I said I will be keeping them. They are really nice. I hope that there will be single shoe option and wide shoes in the future. I will be checking out the website from time to time. Thank you.

Responsive Customer Service

I bought two new pairs of shoes for my son. And I had not ‘received’ them. It turned out it was mixed in with our monthly supply shipment with UPS so it was missed. I reached out to friendly saying I did not get my shoes and they quickly replied to my inquiry. My other nurse then told me that the shoes arrived and I quickly informed the company of MY error. Friendly shoes are the best. Stylish and comfortable as well as easy to put on. We used to buy Billy’s but found them to be too narrow Friendly is perfect and the price point is affordable. We love our Friendly’s shoes.

Nice shoes!

I wish you sold toddler size 7. The shoes are size 11 and are still to big but look forward to having my daughter wear them when they fit. I love the white shimmer shoes but they don’t have a size that will fit my daughter but look forward to buying them when we need them. If there was toddler sizes offered I would definitely give 5 stars.
