Travel Sandals


The right shoes for a beach holiday

As you plan your holiday, spare a thought for your feet: this may be when they work their hardest, depending on your choice of shoes. 

Thongs or ‘flip flops’ may seem an obvious choice, but they offer no arch support and no protection when walking through rainforest or along rocky beaches.

An equally casual but healthier alternative is the travel sandal. Travel sandals offer a secure, adjustable fit, a moulded, lightweight sole and increased grip and toe protection – and with a choice of leather or high-quality synthetic uppers, many are also appropriate for wet conditions.

The best arch support

If you still prefer thongs, our podiatrists in Brisbane Northside recommends the Orthaheel medical thong. Orthaheel thongs have the best arch support of any thong we have seen, and are available at our clinic in a range of colours and sizes for men and women.

For those who wear orthotics, Orthaheel thongs are specifically designed to complement your orthotic therapy, meaning your arches can still be supported without your orthotics and shoes. Foot Health Clinic also sells a range of orthotic-friendly sandals by Naot, with a removable innersole that can be customised to take your custom orthotics.

If you have children, it is important to encourage them to care for their feet while on holiday too. Foot Health Clinic can help with a range of healthy children’s thongs and sandals by Orthaheel, Vasyli and Keen.



Foot Health Clinic is a Brisbane kids, family and active adventurers podiatry clinic. We are recognised Foot and Ankle Professionals.
