Friendly Shoes help Seniors regain mobility, retain independence, and reduce fall risk with comfortable, stylish shoes that are easy to slip-on and zip-secure for a proper fit.
The Friendly Shoe took over 4 years of R&D through a collaboration of medical professionals, active patients, and master shoe makers with a focus on the biomechanics of the aging foot.
Patent pending technology makes it the easiest proper fitting shoe in the world to put on. You slip-in and zip-up one-handed for a proper, supportive fit. And they look and feel great! That's Friendly!

Our Friendly Sole System is designed by an occupational therapist for proper biomechanics. The outsole is grippy, lightweight rubber so you get traction, and the heel is beveled specifically for walking. Our comfort foam midsole balances cushion with perception so you get stability. And Friendly Shoes come with two insole options: Arch Support and Classic Comfort.
