Developed at the request of customers in San Diego who wanted Friendly access, support, and style but in a casual shoe with more breathable material.
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.
Don't worry, it's completely discreet and eliminates stigma attached to “access”. ESA is hidden from front, back, or lateral-side view.
We know that for those wearing an Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO), finding a stylish and yet comfortable shoe that fits their medical appliance is not an easy task. At Friendly, we have a unique solution: Our patented ESA system makes independence easier with a smooth sliding motion.
Slip-in / Zip-up / Go! It's as easy as 1-2-3!

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 and donate lightly used shoes to elderly, disabled Veterans in San Diego.
