'Flip Flops'

Therapeutic Thong
Available in Gympie @ Sunshine Health
  • Archies ® Arch Support Thongs

  • Available for purchase from Sunshine Health - 67 Channon St, Gympie Q.

  • ​An alternative to regular thongs

  • Look just like 'normal' thongs

  • Provide the same amount of support that you would find in a typical orthotic which helps support the foot and encourages a more optimal foot posture.

  • Tighter strap reduces toe clawing and enables a more natural walking pattern which makes them the perfect thong for longer walks while travelling!

  • Elevated heel section helps to reduce stress on the calf and Achilles tendon.

  • Perfect for people who wear orthotics or for those who suffer from foot problems such as plantar fasciitis to wear in and around the house when they are not wearing their orthotics.

  • Made from a super soft and unbelievably comfortable foam material which makes them perfect for anyone that just wants a ridiculously comfortable thong, regardless of whether or not they have foot problems or if they require support from their footwear.

  • Arhcies ® - 100% Australian owned, family operated small business.
