Top Reasons To Wear Archies Flip Flops As A Supplemental Device For Orthotics

Have you ever noticed that the shoes you love the most often lack the support you need? Your average flip-flops may feel comfortable when you slip into them, but chances are they lack arch support, have minimal cushioning, and do not provide adequate traction—all of which is terrible for your back and feet.

Archies flip-flops may look like your run-of-the-mill casual footwear, but there’s much more to them than meets the eye. Here are a few reasons we love Archies flip-flops and why they’re the perfect supplemental device for orthotics. 

Contoured Footbeds

Unlike most flip-flops, Archies are designed to match the natural contours of your foot. More specifically, they’re molded to support and cushion critical areas of the foot, including the arch, heel, and the balls of your feet.

This promotes better posture, prevents inward rolling of the foot as you walk, and eliminates discomfort, especially if you walk long distances. 

Closed-Cell Memory Foam 

Most flip-flops are made from open-cell memory foam, which allows air and moisture to pass through the sole. On the other hand, Archies used closed-cell foam—a denser material that retains its shape, resists moisture, and withstands repeated use and extra pressure. That’s just the start.

Over time, this special foam adapts to your foot contour, providing even more comfort, cushioning, and support in the places you need it most. In short, the more you wear them, the more comfortable your Archies will become. 

Elevated Heels

Archies also have elevated heels, which means that your heels sit slightly higher than the front part of your foot. This design helps reduce stress on your calf muscles and Achilles tendons.

Elevated heels also promote better posture as the slope (from the heel to toe of the shoe) shifts your body’s center of mass forward. This pushes your body into a more upright posture, causing less leaning at the ankles and knees. 

Durable Strap Design 

Unlike other flip-flops, Archies’ soles and thong straps are conjoined. In other words, because the shoe is made from a single piece of closed-cell foam, there aren’t any separate components to break.

This increased durability means there’s less chance of tripping over loose straps—especially if you wear them on uneven ground, at the beach, or even on a regular old walk around the block.

Stylish–Without Compromising Support 

Traditional orthotic footwear has come a long way in style, but it still has a ways to go. But Archies have managed to bridge the gap between style and support. At a glance, you’d never know these are supplemental orthotics devices.
