Archies Arch Support Thongs are designed by a Physiotherapist from Melbourne, Australia, as an alternative to flat thongs / sandals while providing legitimate orthotic / arch support.

Features and benefits:

✔  Legitimate Orthotic / Arch Support - Archies Thongs have a similar amount of support as most off the shelf orthotics. This may help to support the foot and improve foot posture, thereby potentially reducing the strain on your feet and lower limbs.

✔  Two Levels of Arch Support - You can never cater for every person with one shaped arch profile. Archies Thongs have the options of either Standard Arch Support or High Arch Support, this helps us to specifically cater to your foot type and support needs.

✔  Unbelievable Comfort! - The orthotic / arch support found in Archies Thongs combines with a super soft, highly resilient foam to provide an unbelievably comfortable feel, irrespective of whether or not you wear orthotics or have issues with your feet making them the perfect thong to wear when out walking or as a slipper in and around the house.

✔  Ultra-Light - The highly specialised foam material found in Archies Thongs is ultralight in comparison to other orthopaedic thongs which may result in less tired and achy feet at the end of the day.

✔  Tighter Strap - In thongs with a loose strap, your toes claw down and you do not get the protective support from the arch like you are supposed to. The tighter strap in Archies Thongs may help to reduce tow clawing allowing you to walk more naturally.

✔  One piece construction - As the thongs are all moulded as one you are far less likely to break the toe pole as you are in thongs with a base and plug configuration.

All of these features combine to provide a thong that is perfect for rest and recovery after exercise and sport. This is why Archies Thongs are the choice of thongs for many professional athletes Australia wide.

Once you try Archies Arch Support Thongs you will never want to take them off your feet!

Which level of arch support is best for you?

Level of Arch Support

At Archies Footwear we know that it is impossible to adequately cater for all feet with one arch profile, as a result, Archies Arch Support 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 a similar amount of support to that found in off the shelf orthotics. It’s just that the high arch support model has increased support in comparison to the standard arch support mode 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!

If you are used to wearing orthotics or other supportive shoes and sandals, then it is likely that you will prefer the feel of our of high arch support model.

If you are not used to wearing orthotics or supportive footwear, then our standard arch model will likely be a better choice for you.

If you have low arches / flat feet, then you will likely prefer our standard arch model, as the high arch support will likely feel that it has too much support (unless of course you are used to wearing orthotics with a lot of support).

If you have high or normal type arches, then you will be fine in either our high arch support model or our standard arch support model, it would just come down to personal preference of what you are used to and your support needs.

Not sure which one to go with?

If unsure of which one to go with then definitely go with the standard arch support model, it still contains legitimate orthotic / arch support, it is super comfortable and almost every person absolutely loves and raves about this thong! You can then consider going for the high support model at another stage once your feet are used to having the support.

Regardless of which model you choose, do not stress, it’s not a big decision! Both models have substantial orthotic / arch support and it is highly likely you will be happy with whatever you choose! In the unlikely event that you choose a model and are not 100% satisfied, simply post the thongs back to us in new / unworn condition and we will happily send you a replacement pair in the other model free of charge. To prevent misuse of this offer, return postage of the original pair is at the expense of the customer, but we will happily pay for the postage on the replacement pair.

Why is a description of my foot width helpful?

We do NOT make thongs that are of a different width. We simply ask you whether or not you have a wide, narrow or regular width foot, so that we can manipulate the strap tightness in our warehouse to better suit your foot shape. Please note; most people with a narrow or a wide foot know this as they have been use to buying wide or narrow shoes their entire life, so if you are unsure, then it is highly likely that you have a normal foot width.

Please do not send us a measurement of your foot width as this will NOT help us, a simple description of your foot width is all that we need!

Questions to help you decide what foot width you have:

  1. Do you have to buy shoes that specially cater for your foot width? YES / NO = If no, then it is likely you have a normal foot width.
  2. When you buy shoes, do you buy them in wide or narrow fit?
  3. Do people comment on your feet and say that you have a wide foot?
  4. Do people comment on your feet and say that you have a narrow foot?

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.
