I run in Luna Mono sandals. Any distance from 5 to 30 km .... for now!
(I started my transition to minimalist running 4 months ago). The Birkenstock sole feels like the Vibram sole of the Luna sandals.
Very nice product!

This is a heavy piece of material to resole with. I had to cut through it several times to get all the way through.

The material is great and makes for really comfortable replacement soles. The only minor issue was that the sheet came with what seemed to be a permanent fold. I put two anvils on it for a week and the sheet was still warped. But I used boards to sandwich the shoe with clamps and the warp does not seem to be causing a problem after the glue dried. If the sheet would have been flat when I got it, this would have been a 5 star review.

As a DIY I found this to be somewhat challenging, not for the timid.
End result is good and I would do it again. $55 quoted from a foot ware repair place so you save lots.
Take your time! Need all sorts of clamps.

My husband has been repairing/re-soling our family’s Birkenstocks for at least 20 years. DIY makes it easy to acquire the raw materials for repair. Here’s a couple things that he’s learned over the years: 1) To cut the sole shape, use a long scissor (not a mat knife, which is more arduous and less exacting). 2) Sometimes when the old sole has been removed from the cork, one might discover that the leather straps have come un-glued. Re-glue leather before preceding with applying new sole.
