How it works

Friendly Shoes is making footwear accessible for everyone with its easy-on shoes. Created by an occupational therapist, the company ishelping people who couldn't previously find comfortable, functional and supportive footwear to fit.



The easier a pair of shoes is to get on and more comfortable they are, the happier your loved one will be wearing them. This is exactly why all our shoes have discreet, deep zips all the way down the side, or round the back of the shoe to open them right up (and we really mean that – the side zip on the Friendly Force lets you see the whole width and length of the inner shoe). Theymake getting dressed so much easier – for both individuals and carers.

Lightweight and wide-fitting (with an E fitting), the roomy shoes are comfortable for people with wide and swollen feet, and give another option to people who largely wear house shoes and slippers.

Friendly Shoes come with removable memory foam insoles for added comfort. These can be replaced with individual orthotics for extra support too.

These specially designed shoes are eligible for VAT exemption.
