Most practices normally start with orders in the range 20 - 50 pairs and typically end up re-ordering again very soon after!
The most common initial order is 35 pairs. An order of 35 pairs gives you the best mix of sizes and colors. For orders for less than 35, it is difficult to fit in all colors appropriately.
However, in relation to how many you want to order, there is no stress, of course please just order whatever you feel comfortable with (keep in mind we do have a 6 month 100% back guarantee on the stock you order!).
Black is the most popular selling color, then followed by Navy, White, Coral, Sky Blue and Mint. We have found that having a nice array of all the colors makes the stand look nice, neat and presentable and has a really positive effect on sales. Having the bright colors is great for attracting people’s attention and getting them to go over and look at the flip flops!
The most common sizes for men’s and ladies both follow a bell curve with US Size 8 (Archies size) being the most common for ladies and US Size 10 (Archies Size) being the most common size for men.
Below are some example orders based on what we would recommend for an initial order.
If after reading this information you are still unsure of what to order, then no stress, we are here to help you! Once you decide on how many pairs you would like to order we can come up with a mock order for you to approve based on your typical clientele base and our experience with the most popular sizes and colours. You can then place this order through the website.
Please also remember, as per our Archies Supply Agreement, we have a 100% money back guarantee. That is, if for some reason, you no longer wish to continue stock Archies Flip Flops in your practice or store, then we will happily purchase the remaining stock back from you at the price you purchased them for (terms apply). However, this is very unlikely to happen!
Archies Flip Flops are unisex Flip Flops, we do not have a separate size system for men and women. Archies Flip Flops sizing runs very true to your normal US running shoe size (for both men and women), so we suggest to select that for your size.
If you are often different sizes in different brands, or if you have any doubts as to which size to choose and or you simply want to confirm your size selection, then we suggest to measure your foot length using the instructions below and check the recommended corresponding size via the Archies Flip Flops size conversion chart.
Using your normal ladies running shoe size, simply use the size conversion chart to help you choose your Archies Flip Flops unisex size. If you do not own a pair of running shoes, just select your most common ladies shoe size.
The sizes that are marked on the bottom of the Flip Flop are unisex sizes. E.g – If you order a Unisex 7 (Size US Men’s 7 / US Women’s 8), the Flip Flop you will receive will be marked with the unisex sizes (US 7 UK 6 EURO 40), however, it will be the exact equivalent of the women’s size (US 8 UK 5.5 EURO 39).
This does not change anything with regards to ordering. You can see the equivalent women's sizes in the size conversion chart and they are already converted for you at the checkout.
Using your normal men’s running shoe size, simply use the size conversion chart to help choose your Archies Flip Flops unisex size. If you do not own a pair of running shoes, just select your most common men’s shoe size.
The sizes that are marked on the bottom of the Flip Flops are unisex sizes which are the exact same as men's sizes. E.g – If you order a Unisex Size 10 (US Men’s 10 / US Women’s 11), the Flip Flop you will receive will be marked with the men’s sizes (US 10 UK 9 EURO 45). So just order your normal US men's size!
