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 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 are the most comfortable shoes ever; if you have any trouble putting shoes on (fused toes, etc,) the zipper model shoes are the answer.

Quality materialstylish looks,great customer service highly recommend.
Have been waiting for the launch of this new line. Even more AFO friendly! Can't wait for their delivery. Joseph's customer service has been unparalleled! Really! Will post once they arrive. ;-)
The shoes are pretty comfortable, and very flexible. I do really wish the mid top sneakers came in wide however.
I recently got an AFO brace for foot drop. I tried various sneakers and hiking shoes and it was a struggle to find any that fit with the brace. I found the Friendly shoes online, called them for more information and am so glad I did. I ordered the Medimoto Mid-Top 1/2 size larger than my regular shoe size. The brace was easy to place in the shoe with the wide zipper opening. I put an extra insole in the other shoe. They definitely exceeded my expectations. The shoes are well made with quality materials, and are extremely comfortable to wear for long walks. I highly recommend these shoes and am so happy I found them.
Very nice looking and easy on and off
I have trouble reaching my shoes due to surgery and the zippers make it possible to put shoes on by myself. A great help.
