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.
These shoes have a great design and are easy to use. I purchased a size 2, but needed a size up and they were super about returns! Really nice and quick customer service. I’m excited about this brand as it has been really hard to find something that works for my son with an AFO on one foot/leg and an SMO on the other.
Excellent, well-made pair of shoes. Got them for my father who has Parkinson’s and loves them.
Hello and thank you for coming out to support our fundraiser in Alpine! I purchased a pair of shoes for my 7 year old daughter and she absolutely loves them. She likes the comfort, style and color. The biggest “problem” she keeps running into is that the zipper keeps unzipping on her and she has to stop every time to zip them back up. Other than that we love them!
Very cute shoe but it is unfortunately too big in a size 5 but the 4 fits better.. I love them.. I can’t wait to wear them tomorrow.. I am so happy that you are coming out with a kids line.
The shoes are comfortable, but I would like to see them in half sizes.
It’s great that we FINALLY have a shoe to fit the AFO braces that fit great and look fun! Thank you so much!
My husband had a stroke two years ago and wears a AFO on his left leg. We have struggled with finding comfortable shoes for him. We have tried buying two pairs of shoes of different sizes but the fit is never right. My husband has little use of his left arm and hand and so he relies on others to help him put his shoes on. I came across the Friendly Shoes and we are not disappointed. We both love the shoes. My husband is able to put the shoes on and take them off without assistance. He says the shoes are more comfortable because there is actually room for his brace. The shoes also provide him great stability. Great customer service when I called to check on sizing. Thank you so much. Now please come up with some dress shoes.
As I have Parkinson disease the shoes have allowed me to put shoes on with out a struggle. The zipper is sturdy and the insole of the shoe is very comfortable. If you wear a 1/2 size you want to order a size up. Can't say enough about the wonderful customer service and knowledge Joseph provided.
So easy to put on and love how they fit.
Received a pair of shoe but and when they didn't fit, they promptly sent another pair and were very attentive to my needs. Although I was unable to find a correct fit in the shoes I was originally looking at, I would highly recommend this company and will purchase again.
