Although the current weather here in Adelaide hasn’t been too flash, Summer is still just around the corner!
In true Aussie fashion, the only footwear you can spot during our hot months are thongs! But what do those people who require support from a shoe wear??
Archies Thongs of course…..
Daniel Johns is a Physiotherapist who was tired of seeing his patients with arch support issues continuously wear flat thongs. He created a product that not only supports your feet but looks stylish.

Why Archies Thongs?
Archies have up to 2.2 cm of orthotic support and they offer the same support an off the shelf orthotic has. Archies thongs have 6 of the following benefits that normal thongs do not have:
• The specialised material molds to your foot
• They have real arch support
• They have a tight strap which means no grabbing with your toes!
• No blow-outs, it is all one piece
• They are lightweight
• There is an elevated heel which helps reduce pressure in your calf and Achilles tendon
Now, you’re probably thinking, “these must be super expensive for all the benefits!”
At Core Physio, they are only $30
You can call Core Physio CBD on 08 8211 8855 to enquire about their big range of sizes and colours and come into the practice to get fitted for Summer!
