Seize the day in this classic mid-top sneaker. Crafted with top grain, sustainable leather from Brazil, these provide our patented Easy Shoe Access technology with rear access, making them a breeze to get on and off. Effortlessly comfortable and orthotic friendly, these beautiful shoes are also constructed with a slip-resistant rubber outsole for hassle-free shoe experience.
Our initial line of Friendly Shoes, MEDIMOTO, feature handcrafted top-grain sustainable leather. We traveled all the way down to South Brazil to find the best leather that provides support, mold to each foot, and wick away the perspiration.
Combined with bespoke, Friendly Shoes gives you comfort, support, and unparalleled ease with slip-resistant rubber outsoles, arch support, and high-energy return for active living.
Friendly Shoes feature a zipper opening making the shoe remarkably easy to put on and take off. We call this Easy Shoe Access technology, and it works. Simply turn your foot into the shoe and pull the zipper to secure it for a proper fit. You’ll wish all of your shoes had ESA!
Our proprietary Friendly Sole system is designed for comfort, support, and functionality. Lightweight midsole adequately cushions your joints but is firm enough to provide important somatosensory feedback allowing your body to support itself. Durable anti-slip rubber outsole reduces slips and trips through width, heel traction, and a beveled heel accommodating a natural heel-strike motion.
Our patented Easy Shoe Access (ESA) reinvents footwear, making it easier and better for adaptive needs. Slip-in and zip-up one-handed.
The reason why Friendly Shoes is making waves in the adaptive clothing industry is because of its function. These shoes are specifically designed for people who have mobility challenges. But, you wouldn’t know it looking at them; the patented ESA zipper is discrete
The Brazilian Leather Certification of Sustainability (CSCB) applies the tripod of the sustainability concept in economic, environmental, and social terms. Friendly Shoes Medimoto line use Gold Seal CSCB Certified top-grain sustainable leathers.
We offer no-cost, hassle-free returns within 30 days of purchase.
If you don’t like your Friendly Shoes you can return (money back) or exchange lightly worn Friendly Shoes within 30 days – no questions asked.
Lightly Worn means you’ve worn them inside, not outside, for up to 30 days to assess their fit, comfort, and ease of use. Other companies’ return policies are that you CAN’T wear the shoes at all, but how else would you know if you like them? We’re Friendly! so we take the risk.
If you wonder what happens to the returned shoes: We donate them to the elderly, disabled Veterans in San Diego.
The shoes are very comfortable and easy to put them
on with the side zipper. I would recommend this shoes.
The toe box is too tapered. Otherwise, the shoes appear to be well made.
These shoes fit true to size. The toe bed is generous so no need for wider sizing.
First tried one size up to accommodate my wider foot, but actually no need.
Nice leather, too. Zipper works smoothly.
These shoes are named very appropriately.They are friendly to the wearer and to the person helping him put them on. They have made getting dressed a much easier task. I wish we had found them sooner!
Good shoes and I'd rate them a 5 except I drag my right food and the right shoe wears out too fast.
It has been amazing finding shows that work with my AFOs without the headache of going to the the store and trying on 10 pairs to find one that fits good enough.
Amazing, unique design, leather, sturdy construction, good looking, and great, personal customer service.
Innovative Style, Comfortable, Attractive. I get lots of compliments on them. Thank You!
As usual I received my sneakers without any hassles. Delivered quickly, very satisfied with product and company follow up.
I love my Friendly shoes. I have 3 pair. The green/taupe, blue, white and now I'm looking at these taupe shoes. I painted with my green/taupe and dumped paint on one foot. "YUCK!" I'm an amputee with a prosthetic leg/foot. It is very difficult to put regular shoes on my prosthetic foot. It doesn't bend. These shoes slip right on that's why I've bought each color. I even jammed my foot into one shoe and got the zipper off it's track. Friendly sent me a new pair of "blue suede shoes", my favorite color. I love this company and these shoes. If you're in need of an adaptive shoe this is the one for you! And they are truly CUTE!!
