Inspired by the classic look of leather and the comfort of sneakers. Experience patented adaptive shoe technology making fashion easier and better than ever before.
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.
I love my Friendly shoes. I have 3 pair. The green/taupe, blue, white and now I'm looking at these taupe shoes. I painted with my green/taupe and dumped paint on one foot. "YUCK!" I'm an amputee with a prosthetic leg/foot. It is very difficult to put regular shoes on my prosthetic foot. It doesn't bend. These shoes slip right on that's why I've bought each color. I even jammed my foot into one shoe and got the zipper off it's track. Friendly sent me a new pair of "blue suede shoes", my favorite color. I love this company and these shoes. If you're in need of an adaptive shoe this is the one for you! And they are truly CUTE!!
My daughter loves these shoes, super easy to put on and zip. And they are cute!
So easy to put on.
Comfortable and many compliments
I love these shoes. I will be buying these for the foreseeable future. So comfortable, so easy to take on and off, and since I have started wearing these shoes my chronic knee pain has been significantly reduced. Highly recommend to anyone.

My daughter loves the shoes. She has mismatched size feet so we typically have to buy two pairs but Friendly allows mismatched sizes for one pair of shoes. Great cost savings. Following the purchase Joseph, the founder, contacted us to see how we liked the product and thanked us for the purchase. We are two weeks in and dig the shoes.
My shoes arrived so quickly. I love the color and I love that they have a zipper as well as laces,so you can put on your shoes quickly. I also like that my shoes came with an extra sole. I purchased the rose gold shoes and already got a few compliments on the style!
Feel good, look good! Very happy with my purchase
These shoes are absolutely the most comfortable and easy to put on. I have 3 pair now and can switch on and off of my prosthetic foot with ease. Wonderful find at Zappos!!!!
