Founded by Darin Donaldson & Billy Price, BILLY Footwear focuses on universal designs that appeal to and work for everyone.

The Story Behind the Brand

After breaking his neck from a three-story fall in 1996, Billy became paralyzed from the chest down, losing the ability to move much of his body. Throughout the years, he learned tricks for getting dressed more easily, but shoes eluded him—he never found a pair that was attractive and that he could put on independently.

Between Billy’s propensity for problem-solving and Darin’s spark for business innovation, they created a prototype that fulfilled Billy’s personal needs—and their solution grew into a mission: to create mainstream shoes that are functional, fashionable, and inclusive for everyone.
