Due to manufacturing variance, not all pairs of Archies Thongs are perfectly the same length and the length can vary from thong to thong, even though they have the same size number on them.
Also, just because you are normally a certain size in your regular thongs or shoes does not necessarily mean that you will be the same size in Archies Thongs!
If you are a new Archies Thongs customer,
By providing us with an accurate measurement of your foot length, our warehouse team will carefully hand pick a thong which will be custom suited to the length of your foot which will see the orthotic sit in the correct position. When we have an accurate measurement of your foot length, we almost always get the size perfect!
If you do not provide us with an accurate measurement of your foot length and you only provide us with your normal size, then we will simply send you a thong that is a ‘true / correct’ length in that size as per the Archies Thongs size conversion chart.
Please be warned, by not providing us with an accurate measurement of your foot length and just relying on the size number, you risk getting a pair of thongs that are not the correct length for your foot and you may have to exchange them…and no one wants that!
The best way to measure to your foot is to do the following:
Note: in the circumstances that your 2nd toe is substantially bigger than your big toe, then measure to your second toe. If you have one foot bigger than the other, then measure your biggest foot.
Archies Thongs are a unisex thong; however, the sizing follows US Men's sizing.
We do not have a separate size system for women (it is very easy for ladies to convert their size to their Archies Thongs size using the size conversion chart)!
Archies Thongs sizing runs very true to your normal US running shoe size, 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. Please click here for instructions on the best method to accurately measure your foot length.
If after all of this, you still have any questions or doubts as to which size to choose, then please click here to contact us at support team and we will provide you with our best recommendation as to which size to choose.
In the unlikely event that you do happen to get the size wrong (we have very low returns); no stress, we have free returns for incorrect size choice, so we can get it right the second time not cost for you (even for international orders).
For women, your Archies Thongs size will always be one size less than your normal ladies running shoe size (as the sizes are in men’s sizes).
For example; if you are normally a Women’s Size 9 US in running shoes, then the corresponding size in Archies Thongs would be an Archies Thongs 8 (US).
Using your normal ladies running shoe size, simply use the size conversion chart to help you choose your Archies Thongs size. If you do not own a pair of running shoes, just select your most common ladies shoe size.
Archies Thongs sizes follow the same size system as US Men’s sizes.
Using your normal men’s running shoe size, simply use the size conversion chart to help choose your Archies Thongs size. If you do not own a pair of running shoes, just select your most common men’s shoe size.
