Seeing a need to add value service in the West Geelong and surrounding area, the team at Heal & Soul Podiatry are qualified to fit and sell a great range of Medical grade footwear, Orthotic compatible shoes and sandals and the Nano Bamboo charcoal fibre sock range. This fills a need in the area for people who need a shoe to be fitted correctly for their individual foot type and want support and comfort. These needs are generally not met in the general shoe stores.

Extra wide Women's shoes for swollen feet can be hard to find. Often these women find themselves having to wear slides or thongs which cause many more problems.
Revere have made one style in particular, for Summer, that can accommodate feet that swell during the day.
The Santiago sandal is ideal for all occasions and comes in 3 colours with a lovely detail down the middle of the foot. It has a 4 point adjustment system to allow for swelling in all areas of the foot and heel.
Besides these specialist sandals, there are many other comfort shoes in store that are not only supportive but fashionable and able to accommodate a range of orthotic devices.
Bunions are also well accommodated with many Revere styles. We have a great range of Dr Comfort footwear which come in 4 widths and half sizes for a more customised fitting.
What are Archies Thongs made from?
Archies Thongs are made from a specialised foam material, similar to that of the midsole of most runners. They do not contain rubber or latex.
Where are Archies Thongs made?
Archies Thongs are made in Thailand.
We have an excellent ‘family’ like relationship with our factory speaking with them on a daily basis. Our Archies team visit the factory at least once every two months. The conditions for our workers at the factory are of the highest standard. Workers work 5 days a week from 8:00am to 5:00pm as well as occasional weekends in the busy periods. Workers take all Thai National Holidays as well as their entitled 2 weeks leave per year plus an additional 7 days per year leave with pay. The workers are entitled to 30 days paid sick leave. All workers are paid the national Thai wage rates for such work with some of the more specialised workers being paid higher rates. One of our favourite parts of visiting the factory is seeing the workers faces when we buy them their favourite food… KFC!
How long will Archies Thongs last?
There is no exact answer to this, because the durability of a pair of Archies Thongs depends on many different factors, such as frequency of use, type of use, the surface that they are commonly worn on, product care and so on. We have witnessed people wear the same pair of Archies Thongs for over 5 years.
However, our general advice, is that with proper care, you should get one full summer of excellent use. After the first year the lifespan depends on the factors previously discussed. While we believe that the wear of Archies Thongs is excellent, at the end of the day they still are just thongs (very special thongs though!) and after considerable use they will eventually start to wear down and out. Our warranty covers the thongs for up to three (3) months from receipt of the goods. For more information please see our Returns and Warranty section of this website.
