Welcome to Aussie Soles

We're a family-run business based on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland. The team as Aussie Soles has been working together for many years and are so proud to be ableot bring orthopedic thongs, flip flops, jandals, and sandals (or whatever you calll them in your part of the world), to Australia and around the world. We hope your feet enjoy wearing nearly two decades worth of innovation, dedication, and love.

"The creativity always came out of photography and wanting to travel the world and see different places. Now I do that with a pair of my own orthopedic thongs on my feet and know that I'm making a difference." - Craig Taplin

The man behind the shoes

Before he started Aussie Soles, founder Craig Taplin was restless. He was travelling the world, looking for his big start. After successfully bringing Rebounds, the first holey clog, to Australia in 2004, he saw an opportunity to design a line of orthopedic footwear that protect Aussie feet - fully designed and operated in Australia.

Our promise: we're here to support you.
