Choosing The Best Arch Support Thongs In Australia

Choosing The Best Arch Support Flip Flops In Australia

When it comes to essential summer footwear, most Australians think flip flops. But where do you find a pair that’s going to give your feet the right support?

We’re a country of beach-goers, but we also wear flip flops practically everywhere, which is why your choice in thong can make a huge difference to your foot comfort (or discomfort).

Our range of Lightfeet podiatrist designed and recommended arch support flip flops give your feet the support they need for all-day comfort.

Here’s a little more about what we believe the best arch support flip flops in Australia are, and just what makes them so special.

What are arch support flip flops?

First and foremost, arch support flip flops are flip flops with an in-built raised section in the middle that sits right under the arch of your foot.

Our arch support flip flops are specially designed to offer longitudinal and transverse arch support with a deeper heel cup that cradles the foot. This not only provides all-day comfort but also means our flip flops will stay on your feet, so your toes don’t need to constantly grip every time you take a step.

Proper arch support is important for everyone, but it’s especially crucial if you suffer from common foot problems such as plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. That’s what makes our flip flops one of the best supportive flip flops in the country.

What are the best arch support flip flops made from?

Poorly designed flip flops can be created using materials such as cheap rubber, latex or inexpensive plastic foam. Flip Flops providing some of the best arch support can be made with specialised foam, such as ReVive foam® to offer superior shock absorption and provide you the relief that you’re looking for.

At Lightfeet, we believe the best arch support flip flops should be made from the most environmentally friendly materials possible.

That’s because approximately 24 billion pairs of shoes are produced each year, and around 90% of those end up in a landfill or an incinerator when they’re thrown away. Unfortunately, a lot of the materials used to make shoes – such as plastic, polymers and textiles – can take hundreds of years to break down and leach toxic chemicals into the environment.

We definitely don’t want to add to that sickening toll on the planet. Instead, Lightfeet’s flip flops are made with recycled materials, so you can do your part to protect the planet all while wearing the best flip flops for arch support in the country. It’s a win-win, really!

Choosing the best supportive flip flops in Australia

Being the best flip flops with arch support is one thing, but our Lightfeet flip flops have been designed by podiatrists – which means they go several steps further in being supportive for Aussie feet.

Superior arch support

The orthotic design of Lightfeet’s arch support flip flops promotes optimal foot posture to keep your muscles working as efficiently as possible. This reduces muscle fatigue, helps avoid tired, aching legs and keeps your whole body supported – even when you’re on your feet all day.

Foot alignment provides improved muscle efficiency

If you have ever spent hours or the whole day wearing unsupportive shoes, you’re probably already familiar with the aches and pains that spring up all over your body, not just in your feet. Misaligned foot posture doesn’t just affect your feet – it can cause widespread issues such as leg strain and back pain, and impact your entire musculoskeletal system.

So when you slip into on a Lightfeet thong, you’re getting all-day comfort and support, as well as a design that gently guides your feet into their correct alignment for improved muscle efficiency, enabling you to avoid aches and pains up and down your body.

Choosing the best flip flops for plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a relatively common cause of foot pain, and anyone who has experienced it can testify to just how painful and frustrating it can be.

Sports Medicine Australia states that you’re most at risk if you:

  • Partake in sports that put a lot of stress on your feet, such as running and dancing
  • Are overweight, which adds stress to the feet
  • Are middle aged or older
  • Are flat-footed or have high arches
  • Spend a lot of time on your feet, such as if you spend all day on your feet for work
  • Wear shoes with stiff soles or poor arch support

Whether you tick one of those boxes or all of them, it’s important to make the best choices for your feet when it comes to footwear. And as it so happens, we believe we offer some of the best footwear for plantar fasciitis in Australia, which means you don’t have to give up on added support just because you want to relax in flip flops or head to the beach.

Super soft & cushioning foam reduces joint stress

Our specialised Revive™ foam minimises joint stress and provides superior shock absorption, so you’ll feel like you’re walking on a cloud all day – and your feet will thank you for it.

The foam footbed gently contours, which allows the arch to properly flex without restriction, while delivering excellent foot stability.

While you will likely require other supportive footwear for exercise, plenty of rest, and potentially the help from a medical professional to fully treat plantar fasciitis, Lightfeet offers the best arch support flip flops in the business, so we’ve got you covered for all your casual beach days.

Choosing the best arch support flip flops for everyday use

As soon as the weather warms up, flip flops become the go-to footwear for everything from errands to the shops to road trips and days at the beach. We wear them constantly, which is why it’s so important to look for the best flip flops with arch support to take care of our feet every day.

Here are a few of the reasons why Lightfeet’s arch support flip flops are a cut above the rest:

  • They’re made from recycled materials
  • They are designed to properly align your feet
  • They will stay on your feet without you needing to grip them with your toes every time you take a step
  • There are no plugs, and therefore no blow-outs

No plugs = no blow-outs!

Most of us know the feeling of taking that first step onto the sand or the footpath only to suffer a thong-destroying blow-out.

Because our flip flops are made with a revolutionary plugless design, you won’t have to worry about blow-outs on your next beach trip or day out. Our ultra-durable T-bar design means you’ll be wearing your favourite pair of Lightfeet arch support flip flops for years to come.

Lightfeet truly do have everything you need and more for comfortable, sustainable, and supportive everyday wear, making them the easy option when picking out your next set of flip flops.
