"Don't you think its weird that thongs haven't improved in 60 years and you can only get a dozen standard sizes?" Brett Casson - Founder of Retraction Footwear Buy A Pair

Why Are They Better?

Customisable, Air Cushioning & Extra Support

We've made the first commercially available, fully 3D Printed Thong in the world! We 3D Print everything including the sole, footbed, strap and even the reinforcing lugs! 

This means that every pair is custom made to suit the wearer.  And that's not the only benefit.  Click here to find out more.

Environmentally Sustainable Thongs

One of the biggest issues facing the footwear industry is waste.  Our 3D Printers only use material where it is needed so we produce no waste.  We also print on demand so supply and demand is always matched.  

Recyclable - we'll recycle them into new thongs for you when they eventually wear out!

Improved Grip & Waterproof

Ever gone sliding in the wet in an old pair of thongs?  Our thongs don't absorb water like a traditional foam thong, which gives increased grip in the wet. 

We've also incorporated a tread and a hard wearing sole. 

They are also fully waterproof - perfect for the next trip to the beach or pool (when we're responsibly able to revisit the pool of course!)

100% Australian Made & 100% Australian Owned

We design, manufacture and ship every pair from our new high tech production facility. 

We're proud of being wholly Australian Made and Australian Owned.

No need to worry about the COVID-19 risk with unknown supply chains.  We make them in our Australian facility, assemble, check and ship them directly to you!
