Their products are made from top-grain sustainable leather and handcrafted by the skilled artisans from South Brazil. Featuring a slip-on and zip-up design, the shoes were made to be comfortable for daily use. To provide maximum comfort and safety, custom non-slip rubber bottoms were used in the shoe’s design. Strong arch support ensures that wearers of Friendly Shoes will never have to suffer from foot and back pain from standing or sitting for too long. These features and innovation have made it possible for Friendly Shoes to be selected for presentation at the 2020 AOTA Annual Conference & Expo (#AOTA20).

Friendly Shoes is a brainchild of Joseph Difrancisco, an occupational therapist himself. Working with a number of his patients, he realized how hard it is to put on and remove shoes, especially for those with mobility problems. The ones he found in the market were shoes he wouldn’t want to wear himself. They were boxy, limited in color and design, and unflattering to the wearer. He set off on a quest to create the best footwear solution that addresses comfort, design, and ease of use.
