Zappos Adaptive Story
In 2017 Zappos.com launched Zappos Adaptive, a curated collection of functional and fashionable products designed to make life easier for those who have challenges getting dressed.
This new line of clothing and accessories started as a result of a simple customer request. The customer was searching for shoes to meet the needs of her grandson, who is on the autism spectrum. The call sparked the idea of creating a solution to meet the needs of customers with a range of disabilities.
Zappos Adaptive works with companies that offer functional and fashionable products designed to make life easier for their customers.
ro•sham•bo baby Story
As you may know, a portion of all of our sales go to Surfers Healing, a California charity that takes spectrum kids and their families out for a day of surfing and confidence building. We also have autism in our family, so this has been and always will be a pillar of our business!
Our name is also a reference to the nostalgic game we all grew up playing (aka "rock, paper, scissors"). It also pays tribute to our mission to support autism. Special education teachers have told us that playing ro•sham•bo with children with autism can be a valuable teaching tool when kids need quiet attention.
When Zappos Adaptive approached us they had heard about our unbreakable sunglasses and prescription frames designed for kids, and thought that they aligned perfectly with their other products they offer.
Some product examples include:
reversible & tagless clothing
easy on/off shoes
sensory friendly clothing
ziperless, button-free pants
