Soft FB-1

A Soft Footbed recraft includes a genuine Birkenstock Soft Footbed, genuine Birkenstock sole and cork sealer. Some sizes are not currently available 47 - 50 and in those instances, a Classic Naked Birkenstock footbed will be used with added padding and lined in suede.  

Converting your old Betula, Birki's or Papillio branded sandals to a Birkenstock footbed could result in fit differences.  If you are concerned, please call Michelangelo in advance of making your purchase.

Converting your footwear form a Narrow to a regualr width could result in fit differences.  If you are concerned, please call Michelangelo in advance of making your purchase.

A Legendary Design

At the heart of every Birkenstock design is the legendary footbed. The details are all in the design; each element of the footbed serves a purpose to encourage proper foot wellbeing and health. The result is signature style coupled with all day comfort.

Deep Heel Cup

The deep heel cup cradles the heel and keeps your natural cushioning right under the heel bone.

Longitudinal Arch Support

The higher longitudinal arch support runs along the sides of the footbed, providing stability with each step.

Transverse Arch Support

The transverse arch support runs through the middle of the footbed, helping ensure proper alignment and a solid stance.

Raised Toe Bar

The raised toe bar encourages the natural gripping motion of your feet, exercises the legs, and stimulates circulation.

    Like new!!

    It is so hard to find the soft bed Birks in my size and my feet love them. I was able to send my current pair in and they came back looking new! I was also excited to find out that I can get a standard bed then have it replaced with a soft bed. The options are now endless!!! Service was also quick and easy!

    Great repair

    Replaced some old footbeds that were in rough shape- the repair was done very well! So glad I could repair my suede Arizona Birks vs buying brand new.

    Superb shoe repair!

    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!

    re-craft a pair of Zurich from a size 45 to a size 39

    Posted by Kerry Ann Morgan on Jun 14th 2023

    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!!!!

    Fantastic!! Will not go to another place going forward.

    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.

    Birkenstock repair

    Posted by Mary on Apr 29th 2022

    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.

    Soft Footbed and Sole Replacement

    Posted by Amanda on Apr 13th 2022

    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!
