Firstly, in Australia the Archies thongs are a brand of footwear. In Australia, thongs are the name for flip flops (they call them jandals in New Zealand).
I have made no secret that I am a big fan of them. I certainly use them and recommend them and have even done a video on the MOSI modification I make to the Archies when I need that kind of feature.
We stock the Archies at our clinic in Melbourne where pretty much everyone who tries them on buys them. They are that comfortable. We also stock the kids sizes and the really big ones up to size 15. Alternatively, you can buy them online here in Australia.
