When Billy Price was just 18 years old, he endured a life-changing event that left him paralyzed from the neck down, and with significantly reduced dexterity in his hands. Maintaining independence was important to him, as it was a defining characteristic before the accident that changed everything. But he didn’t want to just create a product that would help people with disabilities adapt and retain independence, because he knew all too well the consequences of being “that kid” with a different wardrobe or accessories that weren’t desired by the mainstream public.
This is what led him to become the founder of BILLY Footwear, a company that’s revolutionizing the footwear game with a shoe that zips down completely, allowing you to drop your foot into it rather than shove and maneuver it in. It’s a simple design, but the reasons for its use are wonderfully complex.
