Archies Thongs are great for people with plantar fasciitis / heel spurs and are normally a far superior alternative option than wearing typical flat thongs!
The thongs are made from a very soft and super comfortable foam material which has very high shock attenuating capacity which is great for reducing the stress and strain that would be otherwise transferred to the vital structures of the feet such as the heel and plantar fascia.
The orthotic / arch support in the thongs may assist in taking some load off the plantar fascia which may help to provide a more optimal healing environment when compared with flat thongs.
In fact, many of the Podiatrist and other Health Professionals that stock Archies Thongs in their practices recommend them to their patients as a complimentary device to their orthotics and other supportive footwear. Rather than walking around on the hard tiles and floor boards, Archies Thongs are great to wear around the house as a slipper to support and take some load off the plantar fascia.
