I've bought these for my nieces before. They look great and the quality lasts for a long time. If they had them in adult sizes I would have multiple pairs!

My son wears 1 consistently & these in size 1 slipped up and down on his heel. Definitely will need at least a half size smaller.

I initially bought these in my sons normal size and they were huge. Exchanged for a whole size smaller and they fit, though even then there was a little extra room. I was so sick of trying to get shoes on my sons feet in the morning and these were the perfect solution. He puts them on now with no help from me and no fighting. The kids think the zipper is awesome.

This shoes are great for SMOs braces, my daughter wears them very well. In order to make this style an excellent shoe is to definitely improve the bottom outer sole. It is too flat, it needs more grip to handle all type of floors and outdoors

I had very high hopes for these shoes as my son wears AFO and SMO's. He has worn another brand for over 4 years which we love as they are stylish, sturdy, practical but wanted to try something different that would be a little easier for him to put on himself. The Billy shoes while they are a great style and fit, the quality of the shoe has left something to be desired. They literally fell apart after the first wear. The shoe runs true to size. There is no need to size up with an AFO or SMO. If the brace is exceptionally wide I suspect this shoe may not be a good option. The way the shoe is designed it would appear that if you sized up it would be mostly in length and not width. The zipper is convenient and the padded insole is a nice luxury. Being that when children were leg braces they rarely get to wear shoes with insoles thus this was nice. Sadly, the quality of the materials used in this shoe is subpar. The fabric on the inside of the shoe had holes in it after the first wear. The heal pad broke down and the rubber at the toe cracked and peeled away after the second wear, The the soles in the heal have worn down after the 3rd wear. That's only the beginning. The shoes are a total fail in quality. If your child doesn't have an active lifestyle then these shoes might be a good fit for your child. If your child runs around at recess like my child does than these may not be they best option available.

These shoes were recommended by a physical therapist to wear with AFOs. They are great. My daughter loves them. Thinking of getting a pair of the low top shoes as well.

Best shoe for my 11 yr old son! First pair of shoes he is able to put on by himself. Shoes fit perfect over his AFOs. Usually had to buy extra wide shoes to fit over his AFOs, but these fit perfect. Highly recommend!

Very cute and comfortable. They are perfect for summer and look cute with socks or without.

I really want to love these shoes. My 3 year old wears them with his SMOs, and is so proud of them that he goes around asking everyone if they love his "new red shoes." They come up at just about the same height as his SMOs, which will be nice in the summer so they don't stick out like a sore thumb. I love that they zipper, and he can put on his shoes himself, even with the braces. We didn't have to take the insole out to accommodate the braces, either. Just had to widen the laces a tiny bit. My problem with them is they are not durable. He's had them for 3 (winter) months, and to be fair, wears them about 80% of his waking hours. He wears snow boots outside when needed. And these shoes already have holes in the bottom, and the cloth has come away from the zipper in the front toe area. The SMOs started wearing holes through the canvas, and I covered them with red duct tape about 6 weeks into wearing them. He is also not a very active child, so I'm not sure how they would work on a typical kid. For the price point, I was definitely hoping for a more durable shoe. BUT, he loves them, they're super cute, and he can put them on. So I'm torn about if I will repurchase them. I have not reached out to Billy to see if this wear is typical.

My daughter is very picky about shoes and socks and she LOVES these shoes because she can zip them open and quickly zip them closed. They wear really, really well. We’ve had four or five pairs and every single one has been great!

Careful! Many people will fit their Billy size for length and width, but not girth! These shoes are low in height (2") ! You can't have more than an 8.5" girth (around at the instep) for this shoe! Also, the Billy sole is heavy and inflexible, like Vans, and the shoe won’t stretch. Some walkers may have a hard time picking up their feet in Billys. A larger elastic gusset and a lighter, flexible sole would have helped many people with tone, AFOs, weakness, or a larger girth (9") fit Billy shoes.

Billy shoes are exactly what we need for my son's AFO's, but did not fit. Looks like we just needed a size bigger, with AFO's it's hard to tell what size to go to order. We will are re-ordering ASAP wish I'd known about these before, we've always had to modify Payless shoes! Comfort n/a to our situation.

Love the concept of this shoe. We have a child with special needs who wears orthotics and thought this would be perfect to allow her some independence in putting her shoes on. Unfortunately, they don’t hold up well. She wore them for maybe a month. I’d rather buy Nike or a brand that will hold up longer at this price point for a children’s shoe.

These shoes are awesome! If you or your child wear orthotics of any kind, this is the brand for you (BILLY makes adult sizes, too). We got the high tops with zippers. My daughter wore DAFOs for years, I wish we had these then. She still wears ankle braces, and the braces fit perfectly in the shoes (see pics). The insides are flat, but cushioned, to accommodate orthotics, which is awesome - no more tearing out the insole to make room. The zippers make it super easy for her to put on and take off by herself, which is a big boost to her independence. I read about the company on their website and was impressed. Hope they keep making shoes!

Fantastic shoes. My daughter has cerebral palsy so she appreciates the zip opening. And she loves the pink!

My son wears AFOs (leg braces). We had a hard time finding shoes. We were looking for shoes that 1) would fit his braces and 2) he could put on independently. These shoes are fabulous! The zipper is so convenient. They are wearing a bit where the braces stick out, but that has nothing to do with the construction of the shoe. The braces just rub right there. We will buy these again.

These are great shoes for kids that wear AFOs. It's near impossible to find shoes that look good and actually go on without a fight. My daughter is 12 years old and she looks very cute in these stylish shoes. It would be wonderful if they came out with more options. So thrilled about finding these!

Fantastic idea! Good-looking shoe with quality construction, and all made to fit with AFOs. Ultimately my daughter wanted to go with a more traditionally feminine style, but she was close to loving these. One note: Since AFO wearers may be buying a 1/2 size or full size up, their toes may hit differently. My daughter mentioned that her toe hit right at the zipper and it was "tickly."

My four year old son has CP and wears an AFO. These shoes are the answer to so many of our frustrations. Not only do they make putting on shoes so much easier but he can actually do it completely on his own!

My son who is eleven loved the shoe! Unfortunately his foot was too narrow for this style shoe. I reorder a size down...

We love these shoes! They are perfect for my 7 year old son who has Phelan McDermid Syndrome; which means putting on shoes can be a struggle! We get compliments on them all the time from kids and adults alike! I just ordered our 3rd pair. (PS - way better than PLAE. They PLAE shoes I ordered fell apart and PLAE's customer service was horrible.)
