Traditional thongs, or flip-flops, can never offer enough support to be considered ‘healthy’, but if your child wants to wear thongs in summer we recommend the Orthaheel medical thong.
These comfortable thongs 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.
Orthaheel medical thongs:
- are extremely comfortable and easy to slip on and off
- enable your child to continue their orthotic treatment when not wearing their shoes
- offer shock absorbing protection against hard, unforgiving surfaces
- are clinically proven to reduce excess pronation, a contributing factor to flat feet
Foot Health Clinic sells Orthaheel medical thongs in a range of children’s sizes and in colours to suit girls and boys.
