Seize the day in this classic mid-top sneaker.

Effortlessly comfortable and orthotic friendly, these beautiful shoes are also constructed with a slip-resistant rubber outsole for hassle-free shoe experience.
*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.
Very happy with them
Wonderful shoe ! I bought these for my grandma who lives on her own, has Parkinson’s, mobility issues and, wants a classic shoe. She loves them, the are easy to get on and off. They are unisex so we went with the size listed on the size chart. The shoes fit well but we’re a bit wide- this can easily be fixed with a thicker sock.
When a person has problems with their feet and legs that require wrapping in bandages, it is almost impossible to find shoes that will go on over the extra bulk the bandages cause. I had a pair of shoes that stretched (like shower shoes) but had stretched them out so much that they no longer stayed on. I found the women's selection of these shoes at a mobility "fair" and they have worked out great. They open enough so they don't have to be pushed on and have lots of room to accommodate the extra bulk. When my doctor saw them she asked where I had gotten them so I gave her the information. She said she gets asked a lot of where her patients can go to get comfortable shoes that will fit and go on easily. I would certainly buy them again and would like to get my husband a pair.
Unisex Voyage Black Shoe
As a stroke survivor who has recently had a custom AFO MADE, I WAS THRILLED TO FIND THIS INNOVATIVE DESIGN . Even better the owner Joseph gave me exceptional advice on how best to adapt to my new mobility device. His recommendations were superb. Their level of customer service is beyond anything I have experienced with other retailers. I am sure their business will grow and evolve. My orthotic maker is recommending them to other clients.I think many businesses could learn a lot fro how this firm treats customers
Love the ease of fastening these shoes
I have Parkinson's and it is so easy to slip these on and off. They are particularly great when you visit a home where you are asked to take off your shoes - no more fussing with shoe laces while everyone waits (and watches). -- John, La Jolla, California
These shoes are a good size too big for me, very wide. Comfy, but very big.
I like the fact that you can zip the sneakers to get in and out of them. The only problem is it feels like the bottom of the sneakers are a little thin
At this point I haven't yet tried to wear them. They are a little difficult to get on as on the left side I still have a problem with getting them on. So I will try again in a few days.
