How to heat mould Archies Jandals

How to heat mould your Archies:

Archies Jandals are made from a highly specialised form of thermoplastic foam and when heated, the material will become soft and mouldable. The following technique can be used to heat mould your Archies Jandals. As this involves boiling water, please take extreme care not to burn yourself.

  1. Boil a kettle.
  2. Put the jandals in the kitchen sink with the arch facing down.
  3. Once the kettle is boiled, pour boiling water over the jandals, making sure the arch remains covered by the water. 
  4. Keep in the boiling water for 1 minute (do NOT keep in longer than 1 minute as this will can cause the jandals to shrink).
  5. Take out and pat dry (of course being careful not to burn yourself with the hot water!).
  6. Quickly pat dry the jandals making sure all the hot water is gone and dried up.
  7. Once you have confirmed that the jandals are not too hot to cause a burn, stand on the jandals in bare feet (not wearing socks as this will stretch the strap excessively) trying to put all of your body weight into the jandals, particularly trying to squash down the areas where the arch feels too high.
  8. It's often good to transfer weight from one leg to the other so that most of your body weight goes through the jandals for a period, trying to squash down the areas that are causing you discomfort.
  9. Do this for about 3-4 minutes.
  10. You can repeat this as many times as necessary until the jandals have moulded perfectly to the foot shape. 

This will heat mould to the shape of your feet, giving you a customised fit.
