BILLY Footwear

BILLY Footwear 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™ 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 Footwear 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 removes the wall between adaptive and non-adaptive. Why? Because all people are created equal. And by design, the BILLY Footwear brand and shoes embody that belief.

Each of us has a story. And symbolically your BILLY Footwear 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 Billy 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, go forth and do great things. Flip! Zip! Go!™

My son has dyspraxia so it can be a struggle to find shoes that he can put on easily but that still look "cool" and normal. He really liked these shoes, so much so that we are buying them again, just in a bigger size since he has grown.

The shoes itself great, idea of zipper, style and comfort. Problem is in zipper, got two pairs and both unzip from opposite side. Is this occurring problem or just this batch I don’t know, but to avoid problems I returned also my Billies and my sons(his looked like very well attached zipper). Overall very comfortable, but unknown situation with zipper.

I bought these for my 95 year old grandfather who has very swollen feet and extremely limited mobility. He LOVES these shoes! I did size up one size and to a wide to accommodate the swelling and immobility of his feet and ankles, but then they fit perfectly! When we tried them on him, he didn't want to take them off to put his slippers back on because he said the shoes were so comfortable. He is able to take the shoes off himself but does struggle to put them on alone, but since he no longer drives and is always accompanied by another person, having help to zip his shoes is no big deal. I was so excited to find these, love the style, love that they look like regular shoes and my grandfather couldn't be happier!

I’ve been trying several different options since I started wearing ankle-foot orthotics 2 years ago. This is the first pair that has checked all the boxes. They are well made. They are wide enough to accommodate my AFOs but not too wide to wear them without my AFOs. I need to remove my right AFO when I drive, but can't drive barefoot. This shoe makes it very easy to slip the AFO out from under the insole and put the show back on. I was a bit concerned about how the zipper around the toe would look,but it is nicely integrated and barely noticeable. Actually, the shoe is really nice looking and doesn't look like a “special” shoe at all. the zipper was difficult to close until the shoe stretched a bit. I would appreciate a half size up.

Absolutely piece of garbage. Don't waste your money. Too small, too narrow, and zipper broke the first time he tried to take off. Absolutely garbage!!!

This is an absolute garbage! I walked on my brand-new treadmill in the house and the rubber on the bottom of the shoes is disintegrating, making a sticky mess on treadmill. The material around the ankles are also peeling and disintegrating. It's not like my feet criss cross so that is just bizarre. From just A FEW HOURS of indoor, slow walking the shoes are falling apart! See photos. You would think I wore them for 10 years or something. It isn't even worth a penny. Stay away from this brand.

I wear ankle foot orthotics (AFO's) . I had a hard time finding shoes that I would accommodate all the hardware that has to go into the shoe. The zipper opening up allows me to set my foot in and then zip it all up. Makes it so much easier for me.

I bought these for my 83 y.o. mother who has horrible arthritis. She is now able to get into her shoes with little effort. She says they’re comfortable and judging that she is wearing them every time I see her they must be.

My husband loves these shoes that are so comfortable and easy to put on and take off with the integral zipper. This is his 2nd pair of Billy shoes and probably he will be buying more!

This was my first billy goat shoe purchased as advised by a friend. Easy to put on and looks stylish. Very comfortable and at first look you would not notice the zipper. I will order another pair when needed. Thanks

I really wanted these to fit. I love the idea of a zipper around the shoe. They folded open, when unzipped, to almost flat. They have great potential in both style and comfort categories. Make them in a W that is a D rather than a C width and I will buy many of these. Regrettably, must return this pair.

This is my first time to buy shoes on line and I am very happy with the size and look! The shoes are very comfortable, especially for the foot I've got pain in and limited movement. I can perfectly adjust the width of the shoe according to my issues of swelling and tenderness, which changes daily.

I purchased these shoes to accommodate an AFO brace. I didn't want to look like I was wearing my grandmother's shoes, and these shoes have some style to them. To accommodate the brace, which I will need to wear for a couple of months, I ordered a half size larger and in a wide size. These shoes work well and are easy to put on and off. My foot and ankle surgeon was impressed.

Love this idea but unfortunately these shoes will not work for me as my feet swell too much for these to fit, even with the insert taken out. Wish they would make these in a wide.

I needed shoes that would work with an AFO brace. Zappos must have sent 20 pairs of shoes! Zappos is so awesome. I finally ordered a half size larger and in a wide. These work. They aren’t the best looking shoes that I have worn, but they are comfortable and easy to zip closed, and they don’t look like orthopedic shoes.

I wear size 12 and these shoes fit me perfectly at that size. They are very attractive and look like high end sneakers or boat shoes. When my friends discovered the zipper openings on the side, they were gobsmacked. My arthritic hands deeply appreciate those zippers. These easily have become my favorite shoes.

I need these shoes to accommodate an ankle brace. I have to order two sizes for it to work, but the 'non' braced shoe is not comfortable, plus I have the added cost of an extra pair.

I bought two pairs of these shoes in different colors. The Olive ones work well and look good. The zipper is a huge help for getting the foot with the AFO brace into a shoe. I ordered 1/2 size larger to accommodate the brace. This white color simply looks like something my grandmother would wear.

This just wasn't the style for me. I was looking for an easy on/off type sneaker that I didn't have to lace every day. This looked more like an orthopedic shoe when I got it, but without the comfort. Definitely not for me, so I returned them. However, I can see them working out for someone else. It's all about whether you like that style. As for me, I'm on the wait list for several shoes that I think are more appropriate for me. They're just out of my size...
