Plantar Fasciitis Flip Flops - Moszkito Sandals For People With High Arches

Updated on August 18, 2010

Moszkito is one of a number of footwear companies that claim to have a sandal solution for folks suffering from plantar fasciitis. In this article, we'll look at what separates these guys from the Taos and Orthaheels of the industry. Remember that there isn't really a "best" sandal for plantar fasciitis. The right footwear for you depends on a number of different factors related to your condition. Also, Sandals, by nature, just aren't very supportive. Don't get frustrated if you're finding it tough to source a decent pair for you. Keep trying different types... Eventually you'll luck out!

A Bit About Moszkito

Moszkito Sandals Online!

Moszkito is a healthy footwear company based in Arizona, USA. They make a variety of different sandals and shoes for folks with plantar fasciitis and other common foot problems. While this article is about their sandals and flip flops, Moszkito is actually most famous for footbeds. They have over 75 unique shapes and sizes of insoles available. These footbeds are meant to be slipped inside a pair of runners or casual shoes to provide better arch support. The fact that there is 75 choices means virtually all foot types are covered. Footbeds are no replacement for good shoes. They are alright, though, if you can't be bothered to get the "right" shoes for your condition. Grab a Moszkito insole and slip into your old runners for a bit of pain relief.

Moszkito Sandals And Flip Flops

One thing that the guys and gals at Moszkito are really aware of is the fact that different types of arches need different types of support. Think about this for a second. If you have very high foot arches and you're wearing flat sandals, you're straining your feet with each step. Conversely, a fairly flat footed person shouldn't wear shoes or sandals that are too curved. Makes sense right?

Moszkito sandals are designed for men and women with higher than normal arches. They offer both 16mm and 19mm options on a number of different models. This something quite unique and I'm surprised more companies don't offer different arch heights. It really allows one to get the right fit.

The most popular model is the Archy. It features sturdy rubber straps and a rubberized EVA midsole. EVA is essentially a rubber material that is firm enough to offer support but soft enough to provide comfort. Most sandals and flip flop manufacturer's use this material. Other models include the Fisherman, the Coast, the Viper and the Driller. Check out their website for a full list of all Moszkito's Sandals and Flip flops.
