BILLY Footwear Kids

BILLY Footwear Kids Logo
Born out of a need, BILLY Footwear™ 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™ 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.

With the launch of the Zappos Adaptive Single and Different Size Shoes Test you can now purchase some of the styles you know and love as a single shoe or a mix-and-match pair of shoes.

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)

Billy's footwear is amazing. These shoe smake it so easy to put on when your child wears AFO's.

These Billy boots work well with my son’s orthotic inserts (Patti Bobs). I bought the brown w ivory sole combo in three sizes, so we will be set for a while. They feel sturdy without being heavy, and the zipper is super smooth. Very excited to find these!

We have bought multiple pairs of Billy shoes for our daughter to wear with her AFOs, the wide fit shoes fit great. Unfortunately, with the new low top models we have had horrible luck. The first pair arrived and the insoles were just shoved inside the shoe and crumpled. Billy replaced them but it took a month due to a 3 week back order. The replacement set showed up with a dirty smudge mart on the toe. Billy has not replied to any of our emails asking for assistance. We just want our little girl to have nice shoes to wear with her braces, it is a shame that Billy is treating us this way.

I bought these for my 2 year old grandson. He has a tendency to curl his toes when getting shoes on. We had the Billy hi-tops & they were so easy to get on. These shoes are so nice & easy to get on also. Bought both the black pair & gray/blue shoes. Grandson was 2 in August & wears a size 9.

My son loves these because they are red! They did not come in a size 4 so I went for a 5 and it worked. I usually have to go up a few sizes with shoes I buy because he has a very wide foot (club foot). They are so easy to get on and off!!! Wish I had known about these years ago. We had custom shoes made, but they did not last, and looked terrible. The toe box could be higher for our needs, but seems to work ok. I would love to find a pair in leather so he can wear them when riding his horse.

These shoes are super cute. However, they run very large. We will be saving them for a while until they fit.

My granddaughter LOVED these shoes!!! However…she only wore them 4 times when rubber started to peel away and shoe to some started showing signs of coming apart. Disappointing.

I love these shoes, but I wish they were made better. We still struggle to get the zipper up over my son’s DAFOs. Our son’s last pair ended with holes in the soles within only a few weeks. I also wish there more styles in the WDR. Still, love the design and color.

I ordered these for my daughter. She wears foot braces and hasn't mastered tying shoes yet. I'm glad I got the wide width as I still have to have the laces loosened pretty much all the way to get them zipped. The size 2 seems like a good length for her tho. I would be afraid a 3 would give her duck feet to trip over. They look pretty cute, I like the mid rise style. I ordered the all black ones to kind of camouflage the zipper. It would be cute if they had options with stripes or some kind of little design on the side instead of just solids and full pattern prints. I did change the laces out with some hot pink ones to add a little pizazz. She hasn't had a chance to wear them much, but she can zip them on and off by herself and that is the most important thing!

Great shoes for orthotics however they wear holes in record time. Thankfully Zappos has amazing customer service.

My sons needs to wear AFOs and these shoes were recommended. I am sad to say that if you wear AFOs these will not work for you. They are too narrow in the toe. He wears a size 3 without AFOs so I ordered a size 5w and 6w. He couldn’t get his foot in the 5, and the 6 were so tight around his toes that he couldn’t walk. Really great thought for kids with special needs but needs a redesign to be truly AFO friendly.

I shopped locally and online and these were the only shoes that I could fit his AFO's in without too much of a hassle. I ordered the regular Billy high tops and the WDR Wide high tops to see which one would work better with my son's AFO's. The WDR high top is deeper and fits his AFO's much better, he had a hard time zipping the classic high tops. He has had the shoes for about 3 months and I am not sure how much wear he will be able to get out of them. I had to take both insoles out for his AFO's to fit and it looks like he is going to wear a square-shaped hole into the sole of the shoes soon. Once you take out the insoles there is only a thin cloth material that is between the brace and the rubber sole material. You can see the squiggly and square designs of the rubber coming through the thin cloth in the pictures. I am not crazy about the shoes being cloth because the play area at his school has sand and I have to wipe his shoes down almost daily and they still look dusty. He has the all-black pair because he plays hard and gets shoes really dirty. I wish there were more colors available in the WDR, there were non-cloth options, and also other choices that don't have white soles.

There was a hole in the sole within just two months despite these shoes being barely worn. Not durable at all!

my son has a high instep (tall and fat on top of foot) so I bought these to try . I had to take out both inserts. feels really hard on the inside. but I’ve tried new balance and stride rite and all those don’t fit him so beggars can’t be choosers. he’s only worn them twice so we will see if they last.

I bought these b/c I thought this was the style my son needed for his AFO. He didn't like them at all and we were able to fit his AFO in a regular Billy jogger.

These shoes are perfect for children that wear AFOs and SMOs and I highly recommend them. The shoes fit easily over the orthotics. You don't have to buy shoes several sizes bigger in order to get them over the braces. I am so happy that I was able to find these shoes for my child.

I bought my 7 year old daughter’s first pair of Billy high tops on clearance a year ago on a whim. This year, I was more than willing to pay full price for them. The best feature, hands down, is the zipper. She is able to tie shoes, but it’s not fast. With the zipper, her time to put on her shoes in the morning has gone down significantly, and I’m hoping I may actually make it to work on time this school year. Oh, and the llama print is super cute. Buy Billy shoes for your kids. They’re rugged and durable.

These shoes are amazing for my son who wears orthotics! It's so hard to find him shoes that fit him altogether. These fit beautifully, they are comfortable, cute style, and he can be independent because of the zippers. Just what we needed. I would give a 5 star review in a flash, just these shoes don't last so long. After 5-6 months they have holes through and through and/or the zipper goes. But Billy's has amazing costumer service and is happy to help out when they can! They get a 5 star in service. Overall, I still buy these shoes for all the benefits and tell myself I will have to get them a bit more often then I had to but him shoes in the past. The pros definitely outweigh the cons. Thanks for an amazing shoe!!!!
