Get Into The Groove

Our Groove sandals aren't just about style – they're designed to provide unbeatable comfort, pain relief, and enhanced support for those with sore feet.

Each Groove thong is designed with a top footbed layer that provides cushioning and naturally adapts to the shape of your foot, whilst the firm layer underneath helps posture and relieves strain through an elevated heel.

With an extensive range spanning multiple colourways, widths, styles & options for men and women, you will surely find the perfect fit for your feet.

Endorsed by the APA

The Groove is also the only recovery sandal officially endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA).

The APA only endorses products that offer a direct health benefit to patients of physiotherapists. These sandals are designed for post-work and post-sport recovery, featuring a unique outsole design that helps relieve Plantar Fasciitis symptoms.

This endorsement reaffirms our ongoing commitment to creating high-quality footwear in collaboration with medical professionals.




What is Recovery Footwear?


Recovery footwear, often referred to as post-sport or post-work footwear, is designed specifically to aid in the recovery process following physical exercise and exertion or prolonged periods of standing, such as during a shift at work.

These shoes provide comfort, cushioning, and support to the feet and lower limbs, helping to alleviate muscle fatigue and strain, improve your posture, facilitate the body’s natural recovery mechanisms, and improve your health and well-being overall.

The key characteristics of recovery footwear include ample cushioning, arch support, breathability, lightweight construction, soft materials, and easy slip-on wear.



Technology & Features

Say goodbye to post-exercise fatigue, muscle tightness, and discomfort – it's time to experience the cutting-edge technology behind the Groove and give your feet the support they deserve.

The uniquely designed Groove outsole provides relief for people suffering from Plantar Fasciitis.

With built-in orthotic arch support and the cushioning you'd find in sports shoes, our Groove range redefines post-sport and post-work recovery footwear.

Sports Club Partnerships

Ascent is proud to be an official partner with the NSW Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and the Manly Sea Eagles teams and provide them with our Groove sandals for post-sport recovery.

With its exceptional design and advanced technology, our Groove range is specifically designed to assist in reducing the impact of their types of rigorous training. We take pride in supporting such a legendary group of athletes, and we are excited to see them reap the long-term health benefits of our Groove range.

Utilising these sandals ensures their ongoing support and recovery throughout the tough seasons.




Our Ascent Athletes

We are thrilled to announce that our professional triathletes, Steve McKenna and Em Donker, are continuing their partnership with Ascent for another exciting year.

Steve is a multiple Ironman and 70.3 Champion with a professional Triathlete Organisation World Ranking of #51, and Em is a podiatrist, professional triathlete and the owner of Running Fix in Brisbane.

These experienced athletes have regularly worn our Groove sandals to aid their post-triathlon recovery, ensuring they're ready for their next big events while staying comfortable and supported in the proper footwear.


"The Grooves that I wear to and from training, plus around the house, ensure my feet stay happy when it's finally relaxing time. With arch support and more foam between the foot and ground, I'm getting less of the foot issues I've historically been plagued with."

Professional Triathlete

"As a podiatrist, I see first-hand the importance of wearing sensible footwear every day. And, being an athlete, I know my feet are very grateful for the extra support and comfort after big days of training."
