My flip flops don't seem wide enough. Do you make flip flops that have a wider fit?Updated a month ago

We do not make flip-flops that are of different widths. However, it's very rare that we cannot fit our flip-flops to someone's feet, no matter how wide or narrow they are.

If the flip-flops are feeling a little narrow or tight, this can usually be worked out quite easily. 

There are 3 things to consider with regard to the width of Archies Flip Flops

1. The actual width of the flip flops 

In terms of width, Archies Flip Flops are designed to be snug-fitting flip-flops. For some people with wider feet, the outer edge of the feet might be slightly over the edges as in the photograph below.

This is an acceptable amount of overhang as long as the fit is comfortable and the arch is optimally positioned. You can also stretch the toe poles and straps to get a comfy fit across the tops of your feet. If you find it uncomfortable, then we recommend a size up. 

2. Is the size in terms of length okay? 

If the flip flops feel too narrow and there's not too much space in front of the toes and behind the heels, then size up will help to give you a bit more room. 

3. The tightness of the strap

Archies Flip Flops are designed with a tighter strap than normal flip flops because it's better for your feet. This can lead to the perception that the flip flops are too narrow and tight when it is simply the strap being too tight for your foot width. It's very easy to fix this problem by stretching the strap. Watch the video below to stretch the straps.
