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)

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 !

This is the best idea I've come across so far for my son that requires a brace to walk. I just wish this company made them in bigger sizes. I ordered the biggest size available but it was too small. Otherwise these shoes would have been fabulous!

I had really high hopes for these shoes, but was really disappointed in the quality of these shoes. My child has worn Sure Steps and AFOs almost her entire life and to finally have cute and stylish options was exciting. The shoes arrived and were undeniably cute. However, it was a real struggle to zip the shoes around her sure steps. To top it off, after just one day of wear, the material split in the front and the shoes look terrible. We will stick with New Balance wide.

This turned out to be a nightmare. The zipper broke almost immediately after purchase. I had the zipper fixed but it broke again. Finally giving up on a shoe that looked great but did not hold up well at all. Company needs a better quality zipper.

I love this shoes so much! Not being able to feel my feet it’s great that I can see EXACTLY where my toes and feet are in the shoes. And they’re stylish! Which is so hard to find with shoes that fit my small feet. Plus, they give me independence since I can put them on completely by myself. Thank You Billy!

My Granddaughter is 3 years old and wears braces. These are the first shoes I have found that go on easily and are affordable. She loves to have sparkly shoes now, like the other little girls.

For my son, a wider width is needed. My son has non-hinged AFO's. Without braces, my son wears a size 10 shoe, medium width. At first I ordered a size 12 shoe. It was too narrow and I couldn't get the shoe zipped. So, I ordered a size 13. I was barely able to zip one shoe, the other shoe I could not. There was plenty of room between his toes/edge of AFO and the end of the shoe. Due to the width and not being able to zip the shoe, I will have to return the shoe. I will not try another size. I love the idea and design of the shoe. I hope that at some point the shoe will come in a wide width. If it did I would definitely try it again. If someone is interested in the shoe, I would recommend you try it. Maybe the width will be okay for your child.

My daughter loves these. She wears a size 2 but has to size to a 5 to fit her afo braces. She likes the turquoise high tops but we’ve bought more after the first pair.

Got these for my granddaughter who has limited mobility and wears AFOs. This pair she wears without AFOs and they are perfect! She can’t push her foot into a normal shoe. With these I just place her foot in the shoe and zip up :) love it! I got another pair (lace-up sneaker style) for use with her AFOs and they are fantastic, especially when she’s in her stander! I did find that I had to size up a full size for the pair I use with her AFOs, but once I got those (thx Zappo’s for one-day returns!) they fit over her braces perfectly. I highly recommend these shoes/brand for special kiddos that wear AFOs and/or are unable help in getting a shoe on.

Awesome shoes. I will definitely buy another pair! I can wear my inserts without removing the insoles which I have never been able to do in any other shoes. I can also where my lace up braces with them. The high tops give me extra ankle support without the hassel of lacing up high tops. I just zip them on and I'm good to go! I love them!

I ordered the pink high tops for my daughter who's in a wheelchair. With her AFOs on, she is an 11, so I ordered the kids 11 and they fit perfect. Only thing I dislike is that the footbed is a little too high so her toes are really close to the zippered edge. I had to take the cushion out to give her a little wiggle room. Other than that, they are perfect. Her right foot used to come out of her shoe in regular shoes, but not in the high tops. She loves them and they are so adorable and fashionable. I would definitely recommend them to anyone with AFOs!

These shoes are awesome! I was able to fit my inserts without removing the insoles which I have never been able to do in any shoes I have bought. I am also able to wear my lace up ankle braces with them so I have the support of the brace and the support of the high top. Extremely easy on and off with zipper! I wear a womens size 7/12 with my inserts so I ordered big kids size 6 and they fit perfectly. I just got out of 3 months wearing 3 casts and a boot so these are a real blessing!! Every other shoe I tried left me in pain. I will DEFINITELY buy again!

This is a terrific shoe for a girl who uses AFO’s. We had to take out the spongy insole pad that came with the shoe to get it to fit with the AFO inside. Her typical cousins who do not need such shoes loved the big zipper and wished they could have shoes that are so neat.
