3 Podiatry-approved thongs to slip into this Summer

Thongs or flip flops are an Aussie staple for summertime footwear no matter the occasion. Our Podiatrists have put together some foot-friendly options to slip into this Summer.



Traditionally, thongs or flip flops have a flat rubber sole offering no support to your foot. Luckily there are some alternative options provide support, comfort and control.


Things to Look for:

  • Thickened midsole - for shock absorption and cushioning.

  • Durable outer sole - for more traction and long-lasting wear.

  • Contoured arch footbed - for arch support and rearfoot alignment.

  • Adequate and/or adjustable strapping - for the perfect fit.

Our friends at Global Footwear have a variety of different options for you this Summer. Here are our top three picks.
