Vibram is an Italian company that has been making rubber soles since 1937 and is well known in the shoe industry for making high quality products. The soles are manufactured in Brazil, China, Czech Republic, Italy, and the United States. Vibram offers many options used by all types of manufacturers for new shoes and by thousands of cobblers for resoles and customizations. It’s rare there isn’t a Vibram option that will fit your needs.
The Vibram Batavia 1756 wedge sole is well known for its amazing comfort due to the gumlite compound. It has been discontinued but we were able to secure some remaining stock at a discount which we are passing on to our customers at a sale price. Please know once they are gone, they are gone for good so act fast if you are interested.
We only have size 12 available which should also work for some shoes and boots smaller and larger but please check measurements below or contact us to determine if it is compatible for your resole:
Overall length: 13 and 7/8”
Ball of foot width: 5 and 3/8”
Heel width: 4 and 1/4”
For an additional service charge, we offer the Vibram Batavia 1756 in a double sole configuration. We use it as a midsole for comfort and then attach a separate lugged rubber sole on top for better traction. If you are interested in this option, please contact us before placing your order.

Unfortunately, we cannot always determine the condition of your shoes until we have them in our possession.

If we determine more work is needed at an additional charge, we will contact you to discuss before any work is performed.
