The Archies Arch Support Thongs are a product developed by Daniel Jones, a Physiotherapist, based in Melbourne, Australia. In Australia "thongs" are used as the terminology for 'flip flops' and are widely used as part of the Australian lifestyle. The product was initially sold in markets and now is stocked by many retailers and health professional clinics around Australia.
They are often used by Podiatrists as an adjunct to foot orthotic therapy in Australia where the footwear used is not suitable for foot orthotics.
