Nothing better than getting a pair of Birkenstock shoes and a pair of sandals rebuilt by Michelangelo! The comfy part of your shoes is already broken in and the hard working part below is brand new again. Perfect!
I've had Michelangelo put a new footbed on a pair of Arizona vintage Birkenstocks of mine. I found a pair of vintage Zurich Birkenstocks on eBay. Michelangelo said he could re fit the suede for the smaller footbed, and advised a soft footbed instead of the regular footbed. I thought if anyone can do it Michelangelo can!!!! He knows his stuff when it comes to Birkenstock shoes! He received them on a Monday and shipped them that Friday back to me. I got them Monday. They're perfect. He had to do a lot of magic to get the suede the appropriate size for the smaller footbed ( from a size 45 to a size 39 ) Im sooooooo happy with these Birkenstocks. They're perfect and fit like a dream!!! Highly recommend this seasoned trustworthy shoemaker. Thanks a bunch!!! I much appreciate you!!! Return customer for life!!!!
Thank you for such a quick turn around. My Birks are 30+ years old. I have had them resoled 10+ times. This was by far the quickest and the work is perfect. I will not go elsewhere going forward.
The soles and footbeds of my Birks needed replacing and the work is absolutely excellent!
My suede Arizona's are like new! They were so beat up that anyone looking at them would wonder why I hadn't thrown them in the trash. Now they are LIKE BRAND NEW and soo soo comfortable. Almost like broken in Birki's but with new footbeds! Have another pair ready for rehab! Thank you
I’m enjoying breaking in my new Birkenstocks (in door only). They fit me well and comfy.
I had a pair of Birkenstocks where the sole had worn down, and since purchasing had learned that a Narrow size is a better fit for me. I sent in my shoes to replace the footbed with Narrow, recraft the straps as needed, and provide a new sole. I was very nervous about doing this as I have had other shoes repaired at other places with less than stellar results. Not here! I got my sandals back and they are PERFECT!
My Birkenstocks have been around the world and have been great companions to me for over 24 years at this point so by the time I sent them to Michelangelo they were in rough shape. They had been repaired once before, but I did not do my homework that time so it was not quality work, which meant that they were in need of recrafting with new footbeds and soles as well as some generous TLC. My shoes received tender care in spades, as well as being returned to my happy feet with a quickness that was surprising. This was thrilling to someone who is overly attached to a pair of blue and green sandals and despises being apart from them for long. The footbeds are comfortable, the leather of my sandals hasn’t appeared as clean and bright in decades, and I’m grinning from ear to ear each time I gaze at my feet ensconced in my old friends with their makeover. I know exactly where my Birkenstocks will go to visit when they are feeling the need for repair in the future and highly recommend that everyone else send their foot friends to the master as well. I cannot imagine that you would be disappointed!
I come from a Concord, NH which has a Birkenstock repair store right in town. When I moved to Alabama, I realized there wasn't one in the entire state. After contacting Birkenstock directly, they gave me a link to this repair my Birkenstocks website. I mailed my Birkenstocks from Alabama to Illinois. He repaired them in just a couple of days and I had them back a couple of days later. Not only do they look absolutely brand spanking new when they were in terrible condition, but the speed of the service is more than I could have possibly hoped or expected. Beyond pleased with my repaired Birkenstocks. He is quick to respond via email as well. I will definitely use this service again. Thanks so much!
