To put it simply, adaptive footwear are shoes that are easier to put on. Our range is designed to increase mobility and independence for customers with dexterity challenges, learning disabilities and people still learning to tie laces. Our shoes allow the wearer to slip on and take off their footwear with ease through the use of fasteners that require less effort and time to open and close.
If you’re after boots that keep you protected from cold weather, the Snowflake Adaptive Boots are ideal. Not only are they thermal tested to -30°C but they use IsoDry technology, a waterproof membrane that allows moisture out and prevents wet snow getting in. Their elastic laces with an adjuster make it simple to take them on and off.
The Whistler Adaptive Snow Boots are another great option, offering a warm lining while the outside is treated with Durable Water Repellent (DWR), making them snow proof. The Whistler boots come with elastic laces for easy adjustment.
The Frost Adaptive Snow Boots use a rip tape fastening for ease, are water-resistant and have great traction for icy terrain.
You may find you prefer a walking shoe to a walking boot. Walking shoes can give you more freedom of movement and are lighter weight than a boot which allows for extra mobility and flexibility. Our favourite adaptive walking shoe is coming soon, the Adaptive Waterproof Walking Shoe with rip tape fastenings, which you’ll be able to find in mens and womens.
For long walks and hikes, little feet will love the Drift Waterproof Boots. They provide ultimate protection and support, thanks to a high traction outsole and a synthetic and mesh upper. Find them with elastic laces and a rip strap fastening for extra support and to ensure your child’s shoe stays where it belongs – they’re feet!
To keep little feet warm and dry this winter, we’d recommend kids snow boots. The Caribou Adaptive Boots are designed to be snow proof, with sherpa lining and a high traction outsole for grip. The touch strap fastening leaves them secure on kids’ feet. The Whistler Adaptive Snow Boots use elastic laces which mean your child can adjust their footwear more easily on their own. These boots retain heat with a fleece lining, so feet stay warm all day.
The Ohio Snow Boots are also snow proof and contain Isotherm, a technology to increase heat retention without bulk by densely packing fibres together. Elastic laces let little ones put on and take off their boots with ease.
