Walk On Podiatry

Archies Support Orthotic ThongsLooking for a comfortable alternative to barefoot this summer? 

Have you ever found that your feet seem to hurt or ache more in the summer…? Think about it for a second and you’ll realise it’s true. There are a number of reasons for this. Many of us tend to try and kick off the new year with a new found motivation to lose weight and exercise which can often lead to foot and ankle soreness. However a a common thing we see as podiatrists is that people gravitate towards thongs and even barefoot over the summer months and this is one of the worst things you can do for your feet.


Although the foot was originally designed to function without footwear, it wasn’t designed to do so on concrete, hardwood or tiled floors. The force applied to your feet on these surfaces are too great and often lead to sore and aching feet and sometimes injury. As we all like to be comfortable (and wearing shoes in 30 plus degree heat is not that comfortable) we have now found a great alternative to your standard, uncomfortable, flat rubber thongs.

Walk On Podiatry now stock and supply Archies Support Thongs. These arch support / orthotic thongs have been designed so that any health and fitness conscious person would happily wear them not only to and from sport but also down the street, to the beach or just catching up with friends. They are made from special foam material similar to the midsole of a running shoe which is soft and super comfortable. The orthotic support found within the thongs may also help to reduce the strain on the muscles within the feet and lower limbs. They won't replace your custom orthotics but are an excellent alternative for when it's too hot to wear a closed shoe.

Irrespective of whether or not you have foot complaints or issues Archies Arch Support Thongs can be worn by anyone who just wants an unbelievably comfortable thong. From personal experience…once you get used to wearing them you’ll never want to take them off!
