$40.00

Archies Thongs

Archies Thongs (aka flipflops) are so comfy and supportive, you’ll never want to take them off! They look just like ‘normal’ thongs, yet provide the same amount of support of a typical orthotic, providing comfort beyond what is thought possible in a regular thong. This is why Archies Thongs are the choice for many of Australia’s elite athletes and recommended by thousands of Australia’s leading Physio’s and Podiatrists.

The world’s comfiest thongs? We certainly think so!

The support found within Archies Thongs may help to support the foot in a more biomechanically appropriate position thereby easing the stresses and strains that would otherwise be transferred to the musculoskeletal system. Archies Thongs come in a Standard Arch Support model and a High Arch Support model to better cater for your arch type and support needs.

Archies Thongs are made out of an unbelievably comfortable, high-quality foam material and really have a “wow” factor for anyone that tries them on. Once you get used to them, you will never want to take them off your feet and most people say that they simply cannot wear ‘normal thongs’ after wearing Archies Thongs!

Podiatrists are also finding that Archies Thongs are very useful for people suffering from foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, the soft arch support helps provide a more optimal environment for healing to occur when compared to walking bare-feet on hard surfaces or typical flat thongs. As such, many people both with and without foot conditions, especially those with hard floor-board and tiles simply wear the thongs in and around the house when they are not wearing their shoes.

One of the features of the thongs that Health Professionals like the most about Archies Thongs is the tighter strap and the extremely lightweight design which allows more optimal foot function and enables the user to walk with a more natural gait pattern than what they would experience when wearing other thongs. The tighter strap, super-soft foam and the arch support found within Archies Thongs often enables the user to walk for long distances in the thongs without pain, making them the perfect thongs for travelling where large amounts of walking will be done. Due to a combination of these design features, we receive an enormous amount of feedback from customers who have previously never been able to wear thongs or who used to get pain from wearing thongs but are able to wear Archies Thongs often over impressive distances without any issues.

Anyway, give Archies Thongs a go, I’m sure you will absolutely love them!

Size Guide

Archies Thongs are unisex Thongs, we do not have a separate size system for men and women. Archies Thongs sizing runs very true to your normal US running shoe size (for both men and women), so we suggest to select that for your size.

If you are often different sizes in different brands, or if you have any doubts as to which size to choose and or you simply want to confirm your size selection, then we suggest to measure your foot length using the instructions below and check the recommended corresponding size via the Archies Thongs size conversion chart.

Women’s Size Conversion Chart
Using your normal ladies running shoe size, simply use the size conversion chart to help you choose your Archies Thongs unisex size. If you do not own a pair of running shoes, just select your most common ladies shoe size.

The sizes that are marked on the bottom of the thong are unisex sizes. E.g – If you order a Unisex 7 (Size US Men’s 7 / US Women’s 8), the thong you will receive will be marked with the unisex sizes (US 7 UK 6 EURO 40), however, it will be the exact equivalent of the women’s size (US 8 UK 5.5 EURO 39).

This does not change anything with regards to ordering. You can see the equivalent women's sizes in the size conversion chart and they are already converted for you at the checkout.

Men's Size Conversion Chart
Using your normal men’s running shoe size, simply use the size conversion chart to help choose your Archies Thongs unisex size. If you do not own a pair of running shoes, just select your most common men’s shoe size.

The sizes that are marked on the bottom of the thongs are unisex sizes which are the exact same as men's sizes. E.g – If you order a Unisex Size 10 (US Men’s 10 / US Women’s 11), the thong you will receive will be marked with the men’s sizes (US 10 UK 9 EURO 45). So just order your normal US men's size!

Arch Support Guide

LEVEL OF ARCH SUPPORT

It is impossible to adequately cater for all feet with one arch profile, as a result, Archies Thongs come in a Standard Arch support model and a High Arch Support model. Having the two arch profiles allows us better cater for you arch type and support needs.

Which one is better, the High Arch or the Standard Arch?
One arch profile is not necessarily better than the other. Both arch profiles have substantial orthotic / arch support and have a similar amount of support to that found in "off the shelf" orthotics. It’s just that the High Arch has increased support in comparison to the Standard Arch and one arch profile may be more suited to your foot type, personal preference and what you are used to. E.g – If you are used to wearing orthotics or other support footwear.

So, how do I know which model is the right one for me?
This is very easy and is not a big decision!

ARCH PROFILE
******

HIGH ARCH
– If you are used to wearing orthotics or other supportive shoes and sandals.
– If you have high or normal type arches.

STANDARD ARCH
– If you are not used to wearing orthotics or supportive footwear.
– If you have low arches / flat feet as the High Arch will likely feel that it has too much support (unless of course you are used to wearing orthotics with a lot of support).
– If unsure of which arch profile to go with, definitely go with the Standard Arch as it contains legitimate orthotic support, is super comfortable and almost every person absolutely loves and raves about this thong! You can consider going for the High Arch for your next pair, once your feet are used to having the support.

Getting used to the feel of Archies
Most people put on Archies thongs and they find them to be instantly and unbelievably comfortable! However, for some people, getting used to the support can take some time and in some occasions you may even experience some soreness. In the unlikely event your thongs are not instantly comfortable, do not worry, after several days of wear, the thongs will gradually mould to the shape of your foot and will become much more comfortable!

If you feel you have given the thongs a good try and they are not starting to get much more comfortable (they should be very comfortable!), then it is likely that the arch profile that you have chosen is not the right one for your foot. In this case, the best thing would be to try the other arch profile and in most cases the result is an immediate improvement in comfort level!

It is important to note: a bit of soreness when wearing the thongs in can be the normal experience for some people, however, if you experience actual pain then you should not push through this. If soreness or pain persists, discontinue wearing the thongs and please contact your health care professional.

    5 Stars. I love these thongs! I got myself a pair last summer and ended up buying my whole family a pair for Christmas. Can’t recommend them enough.
