Archies Arch Support Thongs were designed by a young physiotherapist from Melbourne, Australia to be an alternative to regular flat thongs. Archies Thongs provide the same amount of support that you would find in a typical orthotic, whilst still looking just like ‘normal’ thongs, hence why they are the choice of thong for many of Australia’s elite athletes. Regardless of whether or not you require support from your footwear, Archies Thongs are unbelievably comfortable and once you try them on you will never want to take them off!
Archies Arch Support Thongs are a unisex thong, however the sizing of Archies Footwear follows US Men's sizing.
For women, your Archies Thong size will always be one size less than your normal ladies size. For example, if you are normally a size 8 US Womens, then the corresponding size in Archies Thongs would be a size 7 US.
The table below is only a size guide and if you are a NEW CUSTOMER, we strongly recommend that you provide us with a measurement of your foot length as this is the most accurate way to get your size correct. Why is it important to measure my foot length if I am new customer? What is the best way to measure my foot length?
Even if you are an EXISTING CUSTOMER and you already know your Archies Thong size, we still strongly recommend that you and provide this with your order. Why do I need to measure my thong if I have already know my Archies Thongs size? What is the best way to measure my current thong length?
Archies Footwear Size Conversion Chart
Providing us with an accurate measurement of your foot length or the length of your existing thong with your order is an extremely accurate way to get you the perfect size pair of thongs and is far more accurate than just going off your normal shoe size as we can custom fit the thong to the length of your foot. As such, when we have your foot / existing thong measurements, we more or less disregard the size number you select e.g Size 8 and instead we use the measurements you provide to us to find you the perfect fitting thong e.g 26.3 cm.
The size number is more there to help provide us with additional information, keep control of our inventory and for those who are too busy (or lazy, haha) to measure. However, where both measurements and normal size are provided, the measurements will always take precedence over the Archies Size number when it comes to selecting your thong. So please take the time to measure accurately exactly as per our measuring instructions, as it will help us to get the best fitting thong possible for your foot.
It is important to understand that peoples feet do not fit perfectly to a size chart, therefore, using your foot / existing thong measurements is simply a much more precise way to get a fit that is specifically suited to your foot, rather than just using a size chart that does not account for quarter and half sizes etc.
