Do you want athletic-looking flip flops that also may provide pain relief for your feet? This plantar fasciitis orthotic sandal has both a built-in arch support AND an ergonomically-friendly footbed.
Not only do they look sporty and feel comfortable – they also have a surprisingly low price. In fact, these orthotic sandals only cost about $25. (And you may even pay less, depending on the color and size you choose.)
Their durable, rugged no-slip sole makes them wearable on virtually any surface. As a result, you can wear them all day long, ding various activities.
For example, some people wear them boating, to the pool or beach. Others use them as a recovery sandal, as a shower slip-on or even just regular everyday activities. (The shoe’s breathable material is lightweight and, consequently, fast-drying.)
The specially-designed molded footbed combined with the arch support may help lessen foot pain associated with plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, heel spurs, Morton’s neuroma and Tendonitis. Orthotics may also help prevent future foot, arch or heel pain.

What About Orthotic Flip Flops for Women?
Unfortunately, these sandals don’t come in women’s sizes. That said, I found women’s orthotic flip flops that have very similar styling with the large tread and rugged soles.
They’re called the Kaiback Lakeside Sport, and these sandals offer comfortable arch support with an ergonomically-designed footbed. Plus, the durable footbed feels surprisingly soft, like a slim piece of memory foam.
On the flip side, the oversized rubber tread offers great traction on slippery surfaces. As a result, Kaibacks make a good sandal for all sorts of outdoor terrain, as well as pools, showers and more.
For such a sporty-looking shoe, you might not expect them to provide orthopedic support and comfort. And I didn’t even mention the smooth neoprene/poly shoe straps.
