It's important to have your Birkenstocks repaired with genuine Birkenstock materials,
so try to find an official Birkenstock repair shop. (There are more durable sole
materials on the market for resoling Birkenstocks but they don't have the right blend
of "cushiness" and stretchability to go along with the cork footbed. When the harder
sole material is used for a resole, the cork ends up doing more flexing and usually
breaks down very quickly.)
You can check for a local Birkenstock repair shop in the yellow pages of your phone book.
Most full-service Birkenstock stores also offer repair services, either in their own shop
or by arrangement with a shoe repair business.
If you don't have a repair shop near you, go ahead send your Birkenstocks to us at the
address below. We can get back to you with an estimate and arrange with you for payment
after we see the condition of your shoes.

We know that your Birkenstocks are often your favorite shoes. You might wear them every
day - that's why they need repair! Although we strive to finish repair jobs in the
shortest time possible, our main goal is to provide you with a professional quality
repair job. We usually estimate a week in the shop for cork footbed styles. Handstitched soles take two weeks. Boot resoles take three to four weeks.
Selecting 2nd Day Air shipping cuts down on the delivery time.
If the cork is still in pretty good shape, waiting a while is a good plan. You could
really get the full life out of the soles you have now. However, we do encourage you to
replace worn soles before the wet weather of winter sets in to avoid problems such as
slipping on wet linoleum floors.
Yes. On many shoes, we can replace every part except the uppers. You end up with an
almost brand new pair of shoes (and they need to be broken in just like a new pair).
Send us a note that includes the specific style of shoe in question and we'll let you
know what we can do. (You can also see the
price list for pricing.)
Sometimes sandals are not as far gone as you think. There may be a lower-cost
alternative, but we need to see your sandals to make recommendations.
On sandals that are near the brink of retirement, it is often difficult to read the
size in the liner. If you know what size they are or if you want to switch to a
different size or width, please include this information in a note when you send in
