Finding the right fit for flip-flops is essential for comfort, foot health, and stability. Properly fitting flip-flops prevent blisters, arch pain, and slips, ensuring your feet are well-supported and comfortable during wear.

Understanding Comfort

Comfort in everyday footwear is vital for preventing foot pain and enhancing overall well-being. If the footwear you are wearing is not fitted correctly for you this can lead to other discomforts and long-term pain. The design of Slappa’s Thongs along with using premium EVA materials allows your feet to mould into the thongs so they take on your foot shape. As you mould into them the arch support in the thongs will push up into the arch of your foot providing the perfect support for your foot shape without causing pain.

Fitting Guide

To ensure you order the correct size measure a pair of your existing thongs, flip flops or sandals from the big toe to the middle of the back of the heel or to where the heel of your foot sits in the thongs – refer to illustration below. Compare your measurement to our Slappa’s Thongs size chart.

Note: Do not measure your foot itself as this will result in incorrect sizing. Slappa’s need to fit firm as they will give a little once moulded to your feet.

Fitting width

Slappa’s Thongs are designed to fit both narrow and wide feet. It’s normal for the outside edge of the foot to slightly overhang. AS you mould into Slappa’s Thongs the thongs will push out around your feet to take on your foot shape. Despite this, Slappa’s Thongs rarely fail to fit, even with bunions as the straps can be moulded to accommodate your bunion. The key is that they are comfortable and the arch support is positioned correctly.

Fitting Length

For the correct size, ensure your feet fit within the thongs without your heel hanging over the edge. A slight gap of 1-2mm at the back is fine, as Slappa’s Thongs will stretch and lengthen over time.

Slappa’s Thongs have built-in arch support and are designed to support and mould to your feet. In the beginning your Slappa’s may feel a little different to other flip flops; they may feel tighter or firmer than you’re used to, but this ensures proper support. They will soften and mould to your feet and soon you’ll never want to take them off! 

Here are some tips to help you soften and mould your Slappa’s more quickly. 

For more information you can visit the FAQ’s section on our website: 

Wear your Slappa’s in the shower – The hot water will soften the EVA foam and when you move your feet around in them it will gently stretch the material. 

Place your Slappa’s outside in sunlight for 5 – 10mins to warm them up and make the foam more malleable then place on your feet (check they’re not too hot first!) and walk around in them. 

If the toe piece or straps are too tight you can loosen them by gently massaging with your fingers and stretching the foam very carefully (Note: never pull on the straps or toe piece and always support the join areas so you don’t snap/break straps), or wear socks with them at home. The above instructions apply should your Slappa’s feel too firm.

Key Features

Slappa’s Thongs feature thicker straps and a raised ridge for better support, a higher heel-to-toe area for improved alignment, and a strong, molded one-piece toe piece. Built-in arch support ensures comfort as they mold to your feet. Durable and lightweight, they may feel firmer initially but will soon provide unmatched comfort.

Autumn is officially here and in most states and territories that means cooler weather. For some this is a welcome reprieve from what has been a particularly hot summer, particularly in the Southern states; for others it’s an opportunity to chase the warmth and travel.

So here are our 6 top tips for comfortable air travel to warmer climates.

1. Wear comfortable clothes

If you want to be able to sleep on the flight, try to wear clothes that are as close to pyjamas as possible and don’t forget your Slappa’s!

2. Escape from the noise

For long flights, noise-cancelling headphones are a must. If you don’t own noise-cancelling headphones and don’t want to invest in them yet, then bring earplugs.

3. Evade the light

If you want to sleep during the flight, bring a sleeping mask. Simply putting on your headset and sleeping mask can also mentally prepare you to sleep during the flight.

4. Drink enough water

While on the flight, it’s important to hydrate, hydrate and hydrate. Stay clear of alcohol and tea or coffee. Alcohol impairs your ability to sleep, as do caffeinated drinks. Moreover, these beverages dehydrate, while your body will need the exact opposite. So grab a large bottle of water after airport security, and try to finish it by the end of your flight.

5. Hydrate your skin

The air quality in the cabin can be detrimental to your skin. Before you start cracking up everywhere, be gentle with your body and apply some cream on your face, lips, hands – wherever you’d put some extra if you decided to go for a walk on a winter’s day.

6. Mindset

Stop fretting about the time lost in travel and use it as an opportunity to enjoy the time you get to yourself. Don’t consider your travel time as a useless vacuum in time and space, but fill it with activities you don’t get to do too often at home. Take some snacks you enjoy, read, meditate, listen to some music, prepare your senses for your next destination – simply shift your mindset and reframe your thoughts so that you can truly appreciate your personal time during the flight.

Travel safe this Autumn and remember to put comfort over fashion whilst travelling – your feet will love you for it!
