*CLEARANCE SHOES ARE A FINAL SALE
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 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.
My afos fit very well in them. I have a problem with zippers but the leather tab with the grommet in it make these zippers very doable.
The shoes are well made and my grandson loved the colors. Unfortunately they didn’t fit his braces but I’m sure will find a pair that will work.
These shoes are prefect for me. I wear an AFO brace on one foot and have one hand that doesn't function very well. Tying regular shoes and getting them on is difficult, with my disability. The friendly shoes are so much easier to get on and off.
I have also found the shoe very comfortable.
Love my shoes. Lets me achieve independence.
The staff is knowledgeable regarding the special needs for people using braces.
Great shoes quick service
Used the sizing chart and wound up with the wrong size. The shoes are now in Canada and not worth returning as shipping charges would be more than the shoes are worth. Will consider ordering in the future.
The memory foam in the shoes make them very comfortable to wear. The shoes are wide and I have a narrow foot which will take some time to get used to. I have MS and need to have a hip replaced so these shoes will make it considerably easier to get into and out of. I will definately buy another pair or two when I need them.
As a person with Parkinson’s, getting some shoes on can be a struggle at times. These shoes are much easier to put on with the zipper top!
My teenage son wears AFO braces and it was really challenging to find a pair of shoes that were deep enough, wide enough and look stylish. Friendly shoes have thankfully fit the bill. They are well made and easy to put on. My son does drag his right foot and he has worn out the toe of the shoe twice now, but I don't blame the shoe! The company is responsive to inquiries and I highly recommend!!
