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!

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
94 YEARS OLD WITH A BROKEN FEMUR, "TOE TOUCH ONLY" ON RIGHT SIDE. MOM WAS NOT DOING WELL WITH PHYSICAL THERAPY OR OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY, ONE PROBLEM - NONE OF HER SHOES FIT. HER O.T. SUGGESTED A PAIR OF FRIENDLY SHOES, WHICH I ORDERED AND THEY HAVE MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE! NOW SHE IS ABLE TO STAY BALANCED WHILE STANDING, KEEPING HER WEIGHT SHIFTED TO HER LEFT SIDE. SUCH A HELP!!!
Whilst the specific shoe I ordered were out of stock in my sons size, it was so nice to get a phone call and the gentleman spoke to me on the phone as he actively looked for a suitable replacement shoe. My son has been in love with these new “adventure” shoes. They are seriously so much higher quality and sturdy than his previous shoes from Billy. My only hope is they’ll consider making fun designs in larger sizes as I don’t know what we will do when he grows out of these “camouflage babies”.
The order was fine, but I needed a wider size. My fault.
I am a first time customer of Friendly Shoes, but I’m sure I’ll order again after how much I like these shoes! I compared the size charts for youth and adults and all the measurements. I’m typically a small shoe size but had a badly broken leg and my foot is swollen so I need easy access and adaptive space in the shoe but also for the other foot. These shoes are comfortable and supportive in physical therapy but cute so I’ll keep wearing them when I get back to work.
My daughter is not able to wear braces or normal shoes due to her dystonia.(tremors). Even on active days these shows provide opening and support she needs.
My son has orthotics with a thicker heel and these shoes fit perfectly, and even zipped up all the way so he can comfortably walk in them.
My son has struggled with socks and shoes for years. He recently outgrew the pair of shoes he’s worn the past school year and I was concerned about finding a replacement since we couldn’t find the same shoe anywhere. Friendly Shoes consulted me on the size and type & they nailed it. My son cheerfully puts them on because they don’t bother him at all.
