With up to 2.2cm of orthotic support, Archies Flip Flops incorporate the same amount of support that you would find from an ‘off the shelf’ orthotic, however with the patented design, they look just like normal flip flops. 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 flip flops have been extremely popular with many of Australia’s Elite Athletes and leading Health and Fitness Experts.

At Archies Footwear, we know that it’s impossible to adequately cater for all feet with one arch profile, as a result, Archies Arch Support Flip Flops come in a Standard Arch Support model and a High Arch Support model. Having the two arch profiles allows us better cater for your arch type and support needs.
The flip flops are made out of an unbelievably 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 most people say that they simply cannot wear ‘normal flip flops’ after wearing Archies Flip Flops!
Podiatrist in particular are finding that Archies Flip Flops are perfect for their patients when they are not wearing their orthotics, giving their patients a break from their shoes and some much-needed fresh air while still giving them substantial support. Podiatrist are also finding that Archies Flip Flops are very useful for people suffering from foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, 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 flip flops. As such, many people both with and without foot conditions, especially those with hard floor-board and tiles simply wear the flip flops in and around the house when they are not wearing their shoes.
One of the features of the flip flops that Health Professionals like the most about Archies Flip Flops is the tighter strap and the extremely light weight 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 flip flops. The tighter strap, super soft foam and the arch support found within Archies Flip Flops often enables the user to walk for long distances in the flip flops without pain, making them the perfect flip flop for travelling where large amounts of walking will be done. Due to a combination of these design features, we receive an enormous amount of feedback from customers who have previously never been able to wear flip flops or who used to get pain from wearing flip flops but are able to wear Archies Flip Flops often over impressive distances without any issues.Anyway, give Archies Flip Flops a go, I’m sure you will absolutely love them! 😊
Archies Flip-Flops are unisex flip flops; 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 Flip Flop size using the size conversion chart).
Archies Flip-Flops 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 Flip-Flops size conversion chart.

For women, your Archies Flip-Flops 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 Flip-Flops would be an Archies Flip-Flops Size 8 (US).
