The Archie Footwear are flip flops (they call them ‘thongs’ in Australia where they come from) that have an arch support built into them which makes them a good alternative when footwear might be a limiting factor for those who need to wear foot orthotics. This can be helpful in the warmer climates.
The Archies are also proving popular among athletes, especially runners who use them as recovery footwear to give the feet a rest after a hard run. Most people who try on a pair of these buy them as they find them so comfortable.
The Archies arch supporting flip flops were developed by a physiotherapist in Melbourne, Australia. They were initially sold in weekend markets but are now mostly sold in podiatry and physiotherapy clinics. They are proving to be very popular and selling well.
You can see them at this Archie stockist in Melbourne or buy them online.
