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.

"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."
