The Archies thongs were designed by a young physio who was tired of telling his patients to stop wearing flat thongs. The Archies thongs have the same amount of support as an off-the-shelf orthotic which helps keep the foot supported. They have a tighter soft rubber strap than normal thongs to stop the toes from gripping, which enables you to walk more naturally. However, if the strap is too tight, it is very easy to decrease the strap tightness by stretching the strap and toe pole with your hands in the sections where it feels too tight.
If you wear orthotics but find it difficult during the hot weather in Perth to wear your orthotics as much as you should, then Archies are the perfect solution for you. You’ll absolutely love wearing Archies thongs in and around the house to save walking on hard tiles or floorboards.
