Traditional thongs, or flip-flops, can never offer enough support to be considered ‘healthy’, but if you want to wear thongs in summer we recommend the Orthaheel medical thong or the Vasyli Medical sandal.
These comfortable thong sandals have a built-in orthotic footbed, which we have found to offer the best arch support of any thong sandal we have seen. They are designed to complement orthotic treatment, enabling our patients to continue their orthotic treatment when not wearing their shoes.
Designed by an Australian Podiatrist, Orthaheel medical thongs are the only sandals recommended by the American Podiatric Medical Association.
