Archies Arch Support Thongs were designed by Daniel Jones, a young Physiotherapist from Melbourne, Australia. Daniel found himself continually warning his patients to stop wearing typical flat thongs, because simply put, they are not great for your feet and lower limbs.


Despite Daniel’s best attempts to try and get his patients to wear more supportive footwear, his pleas would almost always be ignored. The realisation soon set in that there was presently no orthotic / arch support thongs on the market that adequately catered for the younger demographic who care about their health and fitness and none that he would personally wear himself.

Daniel soon set out to design an arch support / orthotic thong that any health and fitness conscious individual could happily wear to and from training, after a game of sport, down the street, to the beach or just socialising with friends. After five years of extensive testing, research and development, with input from some of Melbourne’s leading Podiatrists and Physiotherapist, Archies Arch Support Thongs were born!

Archies Arch Support Thongs 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 thongs. Archies Thongs are made from a SUPER COMFORTABLE, highly specialised foam material and the orthotic support found within the thongs may help to reduce strain from feet and lower limbs.

Once you get used to wearing Archies Thongs you will never want to take them off!
