Friendly Shoes feature a zipper opening making the shoe remarkably easy to put on and take off. They call this Easy Shoe Access (ESA) 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 technology!
Their proprietary ESA technology 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.
A Different and Better Footwear Experience: Their patented Easy Shoe Access (ESA) technology 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 the front, back, or lateral-side view.
AFO Friendly: 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 technology 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 this 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.
