  • Stay upright with flexible slip resistant outsoles that move and bend with your every step while absorbing shock
  • Sensory friendly smooth linings allow the shoes to be worn with or without socks

Guaranteed Safe Checkout

Traditional and mainstream sneaker styles are a jungle of obstacles for anyone with adaptive challenges and the Excursion provides solutions across the board. This dream-come-true sneaker is ready for your custom orthotics and/or AFO/SMO. Engineered with removable insoles to increase the already substantial depth in the shoe, these are constructed with a much wider fit and large entry portal for easy in and out with or without a brace. 

Everyone benefits from increased support and stability, and it’s imperative for individuals with adaptive and age-related health challenges:

  • People rehabilitating injuries sustained from a sporting event, a work or auto accident, or an unfortunate fall
  • Someone who recently had a heart attack, a stroke, or a diagnosis of a neurological condition such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s
  • A senior grandparent taking proactive measures to prevent falls, stay independent, and live actively

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.

Parkinson's Disease Friendly

For those of us that know Parkinson’s Disease, we know how unpredictable the condition can be on a daily basis. Through listening and working with individuals with PD, Friendly has created some of the most Parkinson’s Disease Friendly Shoes ever made.

Unpredictability is the name of the game with Parkinson’s and our shoes aim to provide a consistent, hassle-free™ experience each and every time. Our large, easy-to-grasp pull tabs are simple to use with tremors and all of our styles are incredibly lightweight to assist with leg lifting, along with our massive entry portals that make slipping into the shoes a breeze.

  • Easy pull open/close designed to accommodate tremors (pill-rolling).
  • Lightweight to assist leg lifting (9 ounces).
  • Visual cue on pull tab to accommodate volitional movement.

Age Friendly

Aging in place is a gift for us all. As we get older our bodies may slow down however our minds become more useful through the wisdom that we’ve accumulated. Unfortunately, from the age of about 25, depending on the person, we begin our physiological decline. In addition, our feet begin to change, making the old shoes we once used to brag about virtually impossible to accommodate our changing footwear needs.

Age-related changes that Friendly Shoes can assist:

  • Decreased dexterity
  • Weakness
  • Decreased endurance
  • Decreased time

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.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Friendly

Dealing with multiple sclerosis can be quite a challenge. Each person is impacted differently, on a daily basis, and this often leads to difficulties with shoe donning. Invented by an occupational therapist, Friendly shoes were created out of need, including specific features to help make at least the shoe selection part of life a little easier and less physically demanding.

Friendly Shoes are crafted with specific features to allow the wearer to get them on with the utmost of ease. Dealing with multiple sclerosis day-to-day can be quite a challenge and our featherweight styles are incredibly easy to get on/off, have slip-resistant outsoles and cushioned memory foam insoles with contoured support for immediate out-of-the-box comfort.

Veteran Friendly

Being Friendly to the individuals that served our country, Friendly Shoes celebrates our vets with shoe donations to the VA Hospital in San Diego, CA.

To make life easier for the ones that made our lives easier is something very important to Friendly.

Have to return

I bought these shoes because my feet swell and I thought they work around my chunky ankle, but they don’t, so I have to return them. Otherwise, I like them. Super lightweight.

Didn’t fit

These shoes were not wide enough for my braces.

Samantha M. (Houston, TX)
Comfortable

These were a gift for someone. She said they were soft but she does struggle with the zipper and it might just be her Parkinson.

Shoes

Thanks to Jospeh the second pair of shoes were just what we needed, thank you so much, ordered our second pair today because of the shoe with the afo has to be bigger,so now we needed a regular size for the other foot that is the only drawback you have to buy to different pair.

Love These So Far!

I have been wearing them for just about 24 hours and I must say, I am impressed. They are comfortable and fit my AFO much better than regular shoes!

Friendly Shoes

I had searched high and low for years for a shoe that would allow comfortable use with my AFO. I stumbled across this company in my search last year and I have bought couple pairs of their excursion shoes and have had no problems Whatsoever. I had to call customer service one day and got the president who answered the phone who Spoke to me for a bit and with our short conversation, I could tell how passionate he was for his product and for a group of people he serves

Great shoes!!

I really love my new Friendly Shoes! The zipper makes them easy-on --- easy-off. I need the extra wide and I do wish there were more color choices, but I am sure I will order another pair. Thanks for a great shoe at a more reasonable price!!

Stable, comfortable, good traction, accommodating to braces

My son is happy with his Friendly Excursion shoes. If he had his choice, I think he'd never wear braces and just use regular sneakers. Since he has to wear the braces most days, though, these are the best braces-compatible shoes we've found. He's able to use them for running in gym class, as well as just going from class to class and walking to and from school.
