Most of our customers already know that Birkenstocks are amazing and supportive footwear, but what they may not know is that Birkenstocks can be recrafted. Replacing the sole is an easy and cost-effective way to extend the life of your Birkenstocks. While some might say that replacing the footbed and sole is almost as expensive as a new pair, we often suggest it because we reuse the straps which have already broken-in and recrafting is an environmental choice since the entire shoe does not end up in a landfill. We offer different sole options in addition to the factory original so get creative when you replace your soles. We have many different colors and styles from Vibram which is one of our favorite brands.

Unfortunately, we cannot always determine the condition of your shoes until we have them in our possession. Sometimes shoes have more damage than normal wear and tear and thus require a more involved and expensive repair. If we determine more work is needed at an additional charge, we will contact you to discuss before any work is performed.
