Birkenstock Shoe and Sandal Repair

Send in Your Shoes or Sandals Send in your Birkenstock Shoes or Sandals for a tune-up and keep them!

Birkenstocks can be maintained just like a car to give you many more miles out of your investment. After factoring in the original price you paid for your sandals and the price of repair work, your Birkenstocks may only be costing you around $10.00 per year. Many people have had their Birkenstocks for 15, 20, 25, even 30 years.

The purpose of these services are to allow you to keep wearing the same, already molded, footbed. Recycling your sandals is easy: just send them in!

Cork: A Natural Resource

Cork is the basis of our renowned Birkenstock footbeds. Cork is a natural resource with ideal properties. It is lightweight, flexible, absorbs minimal amounts of water, and has an antibacterial quality. It takes only a decade for the cork oak tree to develop a layer of useable cork. The cork bark is carefully removed so the tree trunk won't be damaged. It takes 30-40 years for a tree to yield its first harvest. The bark is stored outside for about 1 to 2 years; then it is boiled in water and cut into strips, ground and sifted into different size granules. Depending upon the use, granules are sorted by 3-4 weight classes. Birkenstock only uses the lightest and best grade cork available.

(Tax is charged on materials for California residents only.)

A footbed transfer will completely remove your existing straps, the uppers, and remount them on a brand new classic footbed. This is a chance for you to change footbed size if you want. Non-Birkenstock stores have a habit of misfitting people in the wrong length or width. If this has happened to you, now is your chance to get the size you really need.

Lifts and platforms can be done as a straight lift or as a heel lift. Be sure to give us exact measurements. If possible send us one of your current lifts or shoes. After we take the measurements from it we will send it back ASAP. Platforms are done to both shoes and cost twice the price as lifts. We do not recommend going higher than 3/4" for platforms. Also, its better to wear your Birkenstocks first and let them break in a little, then put on a platform lift.

In order for us to price cork repair we must have the sandals or clogs in our hands. Usually if its just a few little spots it could be just $5.00. If you need a full re-cork, all the way around both shoes, it may be as high as $30.00.

This process only replaces the outer cork, not the whole footbed

Or some people have a brace that needs to fit flat into the footbed. In which case we grind out all the arches. The most common ones are listed below and prices are per shoe.

Time Frame

Most repair services can be done within a few days after receiving your shoes. If you need them back by a certain date you must make note of it with your shoes.

Sometimes soles, footbeds, liners, ETC. are on back order and we can not perform the work until specific parts arrive. This may cause delays. If it looks like we will not be able to get a needed part within a week, we will call or E-mail you with an ETA of the situation. If we can get the part quickly, we will order it and repair your shoes as soon as it arrives.
