My straps are too tight - how to stretch themUpdated 9 months ago

Archies Flip Flops are intentionally designed with a tighter strap and toe pole as it's better for your feet because it allows more optimal foot function. However, the good news is, while a tight strap is important for normal foot function, it is very, very easy to instantly fix this problem by stretching the strap with your hands to reach your desired level of tightness!

For instructions, please watch this video:

If you follow these instructions, the straps are almost impossible to break! For a bit more info on stretching the strap, here's Dan our founder. (We call flip flops "thongs" in Australia.)

If you need any assistance in finding the correct size or fit, feel free to contact customer support.
