Getting Discomfort from Plantar Fasciitis? Our Arch Support Flip Flops Are For You
Sometimes your feet might not be strong enough to bear your weight for long periods. Plantar fasciitis, a dreadful kind of heel pain that causes a stabbing sensation every time you put your weight down, is common among runners, overweight people, and people between the ages 40-60, and people with jobs that require prolonged standing.
While the causes of plantar fasciitis are myriad and varied, one of the main contributing factors why people end up with this orthopedic condition is poor footwear. There may not be any silver bullet or magical solution for this condition, but wearing the right type of footwear is a great starting point. To help ease the pain and keep you comfortable, you need to consider footwear that provides additional support.
Enter Archies Arch Support Flip Flops, the perfect footwear for people suffering from plantar fasciitis. They provide the same amount of support as an off-the-shelf orthotic, which is known to correct abnormal foot structure and support the foot in a more optimal position. Our flip flops also work similarly and help take the load and stress off your heels and plantar fascia, allowing a more optimal healing environment to occur.
Archies Flip Flops are generally thicker and softer than your regular flip flops. Because of its design, our footwear can reduce the stress and strain that would otherwise be transferred to your plantar fascia every step you take. It also features a tighter strap to reduce toe clawing and allow your arch to activate correctly, thereby providing your plantar
fascia protection and support.
The perfect blend of those crucial design features, not found in any other flip flops, makes Archies Flip Flops a savior for people with plantar fasciitis. That’s why they have had such a positive impact on so many people and continue to provide them with exceptional results.
With a pair of Arch Support Flip Flops, you won’t have to come home every day with tired lower legs, blistered feet, heel pain, and aching ankles. Physical therapist designed, podiatrist recommended, and pro-athlete tested. These are on the
frontlines to getting rid of plantar fasciitis.

Designed to look like ordinary flip-flops, Archies Flip Flops come in a wide range of fun colors: classic black and white, mint, pink, khaki, sky blue, navy, peach, coral, and taupe. The neutral colors go with any casual outfit of any color, so you won’t have to worry about it getting too much attention. If you want to add a fun pop of color, you can get bright and vibrant pairs.
The Story Behind Archies Footwear
Archies Footwear was founded by Daniel Jones, a physiotherapist from Melbourne, Australia. When he realized that plantar fasciitis was mainly caused by footwear that offered no arch or heel support, he teamed up with some of Australia’s leading podiatrists and physiotherapists to produce a pair of regular flip flops with orthotic support.
The resulting pairs, Archies Flip Flops, are now a top-quality brand for the majority of Australia’s elite athletes and sport merchandise distributors.
Why Normal Flip Flops Don’t Work For Plantar Fasciitis
Flip Flops Offer Zero Foot Support
Plantar fasciitis is less about your physical activity and more about whether you’re wearing the proper footwear with adequate support. Regular flat flip flops offer almost no support, resulting in an uneven distribution of load and pressure across the foot, abnormal walking patterns, and foot pronation. It can affect your knees and hips and cause damage and injury, resulting in conditions such as arthritic feet, plantar fasciitis, bunions, and a vast array of issues in the knee, hip, and lower back.
They Cause Foot Pronation
For some people, especially those with flat feet, using flip flops or any footwear that offers
no support may cause over-pronation, as seen above. Foot pronation has been found as one
of the primary contributing factors to orthopedic conditions such as plantar fasciitis, arthritic
feet, and bunions.
Other Parts Of Your Body May Be Affected
As seen above, foot pronation can cause adverse effects on other parts of your body, including muscle tightness and misalignment of hips and knees. When your foot rolls in, your entire lower limb follows, resulting in a disruption of limb alignment. It changes the way your lower body absorbs stress and strain, often leading to injury.
They Cause More Stress For Those With High Arches
People with high arches may find themselves in more pain, strain, and stress if they use flip
flops. That’s because their condition concentrates all the stress absorption on the outside of
their foot. They also suffer from a rigid foot with reduced shock-absorbing capacity, often
causing the development of foot conditions like plantar fasciitis and arthritic feet.
Most Flip Flops Are Designed With Looser Straps
The primary design flaw with regular flip flops is that their straps are too loose, requiring the toes to exert more effort by gripping the base to keep them on your feet. When this happens, the foot is arched and not in the proper position to absorb the impact of putting it back on the floor. An adequately designed flip flop should have tighter straps to keep them secured, so your toes are pointing upwards when putting your foot down.
Unlike traditional flip flops, Archies Flip Flops have a tighter strap that allows your arch to perform its normal protective function and enables you to walk more naturally. You no longer have to grip your toes down and suffer from a foot vulnerable to stress and injury.
The Biomechanics Behind Our Plantar Fasciitis Solution
Archie Flip Flops are made out of material that molds and conforms to the shape of your foot. This way, your heels, toes, and arches get proper support and don’t have to endure awkward and tiring positions while walking or standing. The flip flops target the symptoms of plantar fasciitis directly by putting the feet at an ideal biomechanical position, improving both your leg mechanics and posture.
Since plantar fasciitis may develop and occur due to a vast number and variety of factors, Archies Flip Flops will not be able to fix this orthopedic condition for everyone. But since this innovative footwear helps improve foot posture, some people experience exceptional results when using Archies Flip Flops. Many people with plantar fasciitis find them to be far superior footwear than normal flip flops. Just read some of our customer testimonials to believe the hype and learn how Archies Flip Flops helped them.
