For years, I had folks reaching out to me in desperate need of shoes that didn’t exist.
A lot of people aren’t happy with the shoes that are available. They want a shoe that can adapt to their needs. But still maintains the best quality, comfort, technology, and versatility.
By listening to the customer, we have created the most innovative technology with functionally designed products that reinvent the footwear business as we know it.
Feet change during pregnancy therefore so do your footwear needs. This can become challenging as we all know, shoes get harder to put on! Friendly Shoes make your pregnancy easier by enabling the wearer to put their shoes on easier without sacrificing style, support, or comfort.
We provide stylish solutions for moms-to-be and allows for wearability throughout the entire 40 weeks. The wider fit accommodates swelling, memory foam cushioning provides much-needed comfort for fatigued feet, and the patented ESA technology lets you slip into these while sitting down without issue.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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:
*Friendly Shoes are not diabetic certified, routine skin checks are highly encouraged during initial use
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Women's Excursion Mid Top Peach
I am 71 years old and had polio as a child and have two different size feet. I always have trouble finding shoes that fit and are comfortable. These shoes are great! These shoes are both and are lightweight too.
Totally loved the shoes and support from the team. It was great to find out that one of the owners is from Hawaii. True ALOHA spirit from Friendly Shoes.
Aloha and Mahalo!
This shoe works perfectly for my daughter. The zipper is great and the toe box is wide enough to fit her UCBL’s. Thanks Friendly Shoes!
The shoes I ordered have never arrived I’ve had two pairs in the past and they work amazingly well with my a. F. O. I wish you offered better looking shoes for women. Prettier colors like your kids shoes have.
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”.
