Children’s shoes don’t need to be just shoes. Friends on Feet is a new experience and what could be a “solution” to some emotional and developmental needs experienced by and required by some children. We are a new security blanket and a new sensory orientated tactile product that carers don’t have to carry.

You know kids need shoes these days, and shoes should encourage good balance development and let toes spread naturally. Friends on Feet do all these things and more. Our approach is to provide a functional product that carers can use everyday that doubles as a child’s security blanket Friend, that can be taken, or more directly, worn, everywhere. In addition to those benefits, our sensory special needs children are loving the tactile inners.

DCF 1.0Have you ever experienced the difficulties of separating when dropping children off at childcare?

What about kids who live between 2 different households?

What about having to go out without that toy that your child refuses to leave home without that you know you’ll have to carry eventually?

What we’ve done is create a functional product that kids can take wherever they go, carers don’t have to carry and enhances positive development of children and childcare organisations can utilise within the early learning framework.

Now children want to wear their shoes, they’re happy to leave other toys behind that you might have to carry. Lessen the tears, give the child some control and presto, an easier transition, less upset for the child and a happier carer.  Put their security blanket on their feet. ” Hey Johnny, remember to take your Friends with you, put them on your feet because that’s where they can look after you”

Recreated to contribute to the healthy development of children through fun and imagination and also focusing on keeping shoes on and feet safe.

Friends on Feet are more than JUST shoes. Friends on Feet are a potential solution to a few problems carers face every day.
