Birkenstock repairs - can they be resoled at a normal cobbler?

(4 Posts)

My Birki clogs have worn down to the cork footbed in one place. The official repair can take up to 6 weeks and I can't bare to be without them for that long, especially over summer. Will normal cobblers repair them?

they will but won't be the birkenstock sole. I've had it done to a few pairs, they've been ok

6 weeks! that's a long time

Thanks. Think I can live without the Birkenstock sole, is there much noticable difference either to the look or feel?

it depends on where you have them done - ask to look at what they'll be doing. I've had it with a 'solid' kind of rubber sole that had no movement, and one with a fake birkenstock print, they were better as the sole had a bit of 'give' to it
