Introducing the FlipThotic®

There was a time when flip flops were just shoes we wore to wash our cars or head to the pool.  These days, flip flops are everywhere in every color and style.  Flip flops are fun and fashionable, but are they good for your feet?

Unlike regular shoes, flip-flops aren't supposed to be good for walking extensively because they do not have any arch support, heel cushioning, or shock absorption, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). Wearers can suffer foot pain due to lack of arch support, tendinitis and even sprained ankles if they trip.  

Enter the FlipThotic®,  a true breakthrough in footwear.  The FlipThotic® has seamlessly integrated the alwaypopular flip flop with StrideTek’s® patented technology allowing users to enjoy all the benefits and support of an orthotic with the comfort and style of the classic flip flop. This revolutionary design encourages proper biomechanics throughout the entire stride gait. The heel, arch and patented metatarsal riser work together as an integrated footbed unit to provide maximum resistance against pronation (rotating inward), a major problem with traditional flip flops. 

What does this mean to you?  You finally have the ability to wear a flip flop sandal without all the pain!  Your foot is fully supported as if it were resting comfortably in a regular shoe.  Finally, a flip flop with sole....the FlipThotic®!!
