Archies Thongs | Galleria Podiatry


We get tired of asking our patients who required arch support to stop wearing ‘typical’ flat, unsupportive thongs. But let’s face it, thongs are a way of life for Aussies, right? Well, there’s finally a pair of thongs that not only offer orthotic support, but a pair that you and your friends will happily wear.

With up to 2.2cm of orthotic support, Archies Thongs incorporate the same amount of support that you would find from an ‘off the shelf’ orthotic, however, they look just like normal thongs. The support found within Archies Footwear 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. As such, the thongs have been extremely popular with many of Australia’s Elite Athletes across the AFL, AFLW and NRL, including one of Australia’s biggest sporting stars, Richmond’s Dustin Martin!

The thongs are made from a 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 many people say that they simply cannot wear ‘normal thongs’ after wearing Archies Thongs!

Archies Thongs are very useful for people suffering from foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis as 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. They are great for when you are not wearing your orthotics, giving you a break from your shoes, and some much-needed fresh air, while still giving them substantial support.
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.

The 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.
Anyway, give Archies Thongs a go, I’m sure you will absolutely love
