BILLY Footwear Kids

BILLY Footwear Kids Logo
Born out of a need, BILLY Footwear(tm) was founded on the basis of empowering independence and the principle of inclusion.

Embracing the concept of universal design in their innovative FlipTop(tm) technology, BILLY Footwear(tm) has revolutionized how shoes are put on and taken off. By incorporating a zipper that goes along the side of the shoe and around the toe, the upper of each shoe opens and folds over completely. The design allows for unobstructed foot placement onto the shoe footbed. Then with a flip and a zip, the shoe securely closes.

Yes, BILLY(tm) shoes have adaptive characteristics, but they are hardly "adaptive" in the traditional sense of the word. "Adaptive" refers to a niche market. And although the shoes can satisfy the adaptive market they are not constrained by it. BILLY Footwear(tm) removes the wall between adaptive and non-adaptive. Why? Because all people are created equal. And by design, the BILLY Footwear(tm) brand and shoes embody that belief.

Each of us has a story. And symbolically your BILLY(tm) shoes are like a book. Every time you open them you are starting a new chapter, and when you pull the zippers closed you are saying “Yes!” to whatever adventures lie ahead.

It is time to add to your story. Opportunity and success awaits. With BILLY Footwear(tm), go forth and do great things. Flip! Zip! Go!(tm)

Simply amazing! These have made getting my 5 year old dresses so much easier & she can unzip them herself which really helps with her independence. No more trial & error hoping a shoe will fit over her AFOs.

We bought these in October 2018 and it is now March 2019. Our daughter has AFOs so it has been very hard to find shoes that she can put on and take off on her own. When I found these I had to jump on them. We have a high top pair and the lower ones. She switches back and forth and loves them. We are about to get new ones only because she is getting new braces and will need the next size bigger. Thank you Billy Footwear!

I could barely get these over my sons AFO. The high top ones seemed to work better.

I bought these for my daughter who wears AFO’s. As with all shoes the insoles must be taken out. Once this was done the shoes zipped up beautifully. She has more support and the length is perfect for once when dealing with shoes shopping and AFO’s. I will definite be buying more of these! Finally a great looking shoes for our kids!!

I love how thus shoe fits my son foot comfortable with his Smo on. I will be purchasing another pair because they do fit a little small. My son wears an 9, but purchased him a 10 for some extra room and even with the bigger size they fit just right up on his big toe. Also I see they fit better with a thin cotton sock verses a thick cotton sock. I hate to spend another $55 bucks so soon but they're much needed for my son. I really live the concept of the particular sneaker.

We bought this for my son that wears orthotics. Knowing that they aren’t designed specificly for orthotics we wanted to try because the independence the zipper would provide. They do seem to run wider than a typical athletic style kids shoe with lots of room to adjust with the laces. The extra wide width of the orthotics with the edges rubbing on the seams would be a lot to ask of any shoe. My son just didn’t have the dexterity to manipulate the zipper with the extra pressure of the crazy wide orthotics. I wish we’d have found these earlier since earlier versions of his orthotics weren’t quite this wide and I think would have fit just perfect.

2nd pair and holding up great. My daughter loves being independent. We bought the second pair so that she could choose which pair she wanted to wear and not be confined to one pair every day.

I love that these shoes fit so well with my daughter's AFOs. She loves that her shoes don't look that different from her classmates. I love that she can be independent and put her braces and shoes on completely by herself.

I have owned a pair of these shoes for the last 4 1/2 months. So far they show little wear for the amount of PT and walking that I have been doing with them. I am very impressed and am excited for my next pair.

This is my daughter’s 5th pair of Billy’s and we love them! I’m glad they stopped glueing the insole down. She wears some pretty hefty AFO’s with the ice hinges and they fit like a dream inside these. They don’t have a super durable sole but considering we have a semi-rigid brace delivering the abuse, they do alright.

Ordered for my daughter that wears AFO's. They are fantastic! She loves that she is able to get them on/off easier. We also have a pair of the classic high and they are great as well. I do wish there was the option of half sizes but otherwise we highly recommend.

My granddaughter loves these shoes. She has CP and wears AFOs so it is impossible to find shoes to fit over them but these are perfect. They are stylish and well made. The sizing is a bit tricky so you have to really pay attention to the sizing charts. I did have a question so I emailed Billy shoes and they answered within one day. The price is decent enough to be able to afford more than one pair. Very happy with my purchase and will order again. Note to Canadian customers; if you need to return the shoes (the first pair we ordered were too small), you have to pay shipping to send them back. That will cost you about another $25.00

My son has Down syndrome, and can now remove his own shoes. These shoes are great for those with fine motor challenges. Also, my boy wears orthotics, and these shoes WORK. They can be loosened to fit over the braces so that they fit without the daily struggle of forcing a braced foot into a shoe. THANK YOU Billy shoes. I wish you made these shoes in adult sizes for those adults that have challenges!

The 2 pair of Billy's were purchased for my handicapped niece, who wears brace/supports for both foot & ankle. She is not verbal, so it is hard to get a reply from her on the comfort. But from the way she walked when I put them on her, was a joy to see ! This style was just too good to be true !!!! We kept the high top pair as they seemed to be a better choice and extra support for her. What a great idea with the wraparound zipper.... just would suggest that they also produce this style in a little wider size too. The low top seemed to allow the heel to slip when walking. Her previous 'special' design tennis shoe were bulky and heavy, so was pleased to see how light weight these were for her. We are giving her a few days of wearing them to make sure that the fit is correct . VERY PLEASED SO FAR !
