About Us … Who we are … Special Heroes
Our story began with our own experience. Bor - our special hero, was born with a rare genetic defect - a deletion of chromosome 8 (8p23.1). This small, missing piece of his genetic material has made a big difference in our family’s lives.
One day we found out about Billy Footwear. This shoes instantly convinced us! Their special feature is that it has a brand new, different and unique system of putting shoes on and off - FlipTop Technology, which makes this activity much easier for many heroes. . What convinced us that we want to offer Billy Footwear to the Slovenian and other markets is their fashionable and attractive look, and their mission to create shoes that are functional, fashionable and inclusive for everyone. It is precisely this philosophy, “fashion for all”, that is close to us and we want our society to be given the opportunity to develop in the way of acceptance and inclusion.
Billy Footwear footwear is therefore intended for all of us: GIRLS AND BOYS, WHEELCHAIR RIDERS AND WALKING PEOPLE, SMALL AND BIG!
A brief explanation of why the name Special Heroes. In a community where we are connected parents/guardians of children with the same or similar genetic disorder as our Bor, we named our children - "8P heroes". I once came across an interesting post by Mr. Robert Gore while browsing the web. Robert Gore says that each of us hides a hero in himself, to show his gifts, strength, and abilities in all his greatness. Certainly, the hero is the one who has the most positive influence on fellow human beings and inspires others by his example that this is possible. And because our vision is to offer even more products in the online store, which will make everyday life easier for our special heroes and their parents/guardians, the name SPECIAL HEROES seemed to us to be the best choice.
