Not Just An Average Joe

Happy Feet Plus - Repair Shop Joe

There are some who call him… Joe.

Joe (his real name – no alias needed here) has been fixin’ shoes for 24 years. Joe is our shoe repair guy. We like Joe. He shows up in the morning, says “Hi”, goes into his shop and closes the door. At the end of his day he opens the door, lines up all the nicely polished resoled, repaired, refurbished, re-whatever footwear, and goes home.

What magic does Joe perform behind that closed door each day? A few weeks ago I described the process of resoling and refurbishing Birkenstock and Finn Comfort footwear. Joe does that but that’s not the end of the work he can do.

In addition to the refurbs and resoles Joe does lifts, wedges, and tapers. But wait, that’s not all. He can make almost any Birkenstock into a high arch or soft footbed version, so you’re not limited to just the stock styles and colors.

Yes Joe’s a versatile, and busy, guy. If you have a question or need more specific information about repairs, call him at 1-800-336-6657 and ask for “Joe the Repair Guy”.

Here’s a list of some of the custom work Joe can do in addition to the basic refurbs and repairs.

  • Lifts up to 5 inches (for those with a leg-length discrepancy)
  • Medial Wedges
  • Lateral Wedges
  • Heel Wedges (just the heel or from heel to metatarsal)
  • Lift Rocker Tapers (for those who’ve had major knee or ankle surgery)

All lifts, wedges, and tapers use an ultra-lightweight and durable material. All soles are matched to ensure a uniform appearance.

Happy Feet Plus is an Authorized Birkenstock and Finn Comfort Repair Facility.

Neuromas Really Hurt

Happy Feet Plus - Neuromas Really Hurt

Does the bottom of your foot tingle, burn or feel numb?

If you have one or more of these symptoms you might be suffering from Morton’s Neuroma:

  • Tingling, burning, or numbness
  • Pain
  • A feeling that something is inside the ball of your foot
  • A feeling that your sock is bunched up

So, what is a neuroma?

A neuroma is a thickening of nerve tissues and may occur in almost any part of the body. This thickening, or enlargement, is the result of compression and irritation of the nerve. This compression creates enlargement of the nerve, eventually leading to permanent nerve damage.

Morton’s Neuroma is the most common foot neuroma. Morton’s Neuroma develops between the third and fourth toes. In this area of the foot part of the lateral plantar nerve combines with part of the medial plantar nerve. Where these two nerves merge they are usually larger in diameter than those going to the other toes. Also contributing to potential problems, the nerve lies close to the surface of the skin and to an artery and vein.

As a result, even a small amount of squeezing or irritation of the nerve can lead to the development of a neuroma. Pointy-toed shoes or high-heeled shoes are typically the cause of irritation.

People with bunions, hammer toes, or flat feet are more likely to develop a neuroma.

Once the pain starts, what should I expect?

  • At first you may only feel the discomfort when wearing certain pointy-toed shoes or doing some activity that aggravates the affected area.
  • The symptoms might go away when you remove the shoe or massage the foot.
  • Over time the symptoms worsen and may continue for several days or weeks.
  • The symptoms will become more intense as the neuroma enlarges and the temporary changes in the nerve become permanent.

What can I do to lessen or eliminate the pain?

  • The first thing to do is to stop wearing the pointy-toed and high-heeled shoes.
  • Reduce or stop any activities that place repetitive pressure on the nerve.
  • Begin wearing supportive footwear with a wide toe box like Birkenstock or Finn Comfort, or use high-quality shoe inserts such as the Birkenstock or Birki insoles.
  • Place an icepack on the affected area to help reduce swelling.

Resole Those Old Birks & Finns To Save Bucks

Extend the Life of Your Birkenstock or Finn Comfort Footwear.

Happy Feet Plus - Authorized Birkenstock Repair

One of the many advantages of investing in quality footwear like Birkenstock or Finn Comfort is the ability to have them refurbished. Most of the Birkenstock brands have two levels of refurbishment. The least expensive of these is a “resole”.

To resole of a Birkenstock our certified technician removes the old EVA sole and replaces it with an authorized replacement sole. This is a great option if the cork footbed is not damaged or excessively worn. The cost of a resole is $35.00 per pair.

If the sole and the footbed need to be replaced then a “recraft” is required. Recrafts are great for anyone who has grown to love the look or feel of their favorite Birkenstock upper. Anyone with a limited edition or discontinued upper style can extend the life of their footwear for less cost than buying a new clog or sandal. A recraft for a pair of Birkenstocks is only $65.00.

Because refurbishment of your Birks is possible it becomes even more important to properly care for them. Using Cork Life on a regular basis will help protect the cork footbeds and extend their life. Cleaning and polishing the uppers will keep them in good shape and viable for a long time.

Finn Comfort footwear can also be refurbished. Finn Comfort outsoles are replaceable by a certified technician, but insoles can be purchased and replaced by wearers. Soft Replacement Insoles are $54.99 and Hard Replacement Insoles are $44.99.

Replacing the outsole of a Finn Comfort shoe, sandal or clog is only $65.00 a pair. A certified technician will remove the old sole then glue and hand stitch a new sole using water-resistant cobblers thread. The technician will also give your footwear a good polishing and you’ll now have an almost-as-good-as-new pair of Finn Comforts.

If you consider each refurbishment a “new” pair of shoes, you can see how dramatically you can cut the cost per pair if you resole your shoes just twice.

If you have any questions about resole, repair, recraft or refurbishment, call 1-800-336-6657 or go to Happy Feet Plus Web Site and click on the “Live Chat” link at the top of the page.

SHOE REVIEWED

CUSTOMER COMMENT

Birkenstock
Arizona

My son is very happy with his new Birks. They were a replacement for a pair he wore to the ground, so to speak. We originally ordered the wrong size but I was able to intercept the process with a representative on the phone and received the correct size in the mail in quick time. Thank you
Joan R., NY

Birkenstock
Arizona

I found the Happy Feet website easy to use. It has the best selection of Birkenstocks I found online with good prices. I got one pair for casual wear and one for dressier events. There is only one other type of shoe my podiatrist will let me wear with my plantar fasciitis.
Karen P., WA

Birki’s
Haiti

Been a “Birkie” since they were invented. Don’t wear anything else. I was thrilled to find the Happy Feet website.
danyell s., TN

Finn Comfort
Jamaica

My third pair of the Jamaica — each one fits like the previous one. Finn Comfort produces great shoes…consistent sizing and oh so comfortable!
Julie M., FL

Finn Comfort
Jamaica

My plantar fasciitis was acting up because my previous pair were too worn at the heels. Within a day of wearing the new ones, I felt much better.
Janet N., CA

Kenkoh
Soul

I felt all of the soreness on my feet start to fade.Once I broke into them I didn’t want to stop wearing them.I brought them to work with me a couple of times because I am a hairstylist and wore socks with them!I highly recommend it
Celeste S., MA

Kenkoh
Spirit

Just bought a pair today bc my feet were killing me. Put them on before leaving shirokiya and WOW within 5 minutes my feet starting feeling great. I do recomend only wearing them for a little while for 1st time use. Brittany Honolulu, HI

Mephisto
Hannel

I have owned these sandals for 3 years. The great arch and cork sole bed are the only thing that gave me relief from a nasty case of Plantar Fascitis. They mold to your foot and are well worth the price I paid. I will probably buy another pair unless Mephisto comes out with a new style with the same properties. They were a Godsend.

Papillio
Tabora

These are the best shoes I have ever owned I bought my first paid seven years ago and I’m just needing to buy another pair. I wear them with everthing pants, shorts, even dresses. these are soooo comfy.

Finn Comfort Sandals Helped Sandra Walk

Finn Comfort Sandals Helped Sandra Walk

Can Good Quality Footwear Really Make A Difference? You Bet!

Recently we received a “Satisfied Customer” story from Robyn, one of our foot health specialists, that I found interesting. We often hear anecdotes regarding how our footwear (most often our Kenkoh Massage Sandals and the MBT brand) have enabled customers to get around with reduced or even eliminated pain. It was nice to get this first-hand experience that you too may find interesting and helpful.

“On Thursday May 20th a regular customer named Sandra came in for some walking shoes. She told me that at one point she was confined to a wheelchair because she couldn’t walk. During a trip to Sedona, AZ, she decided to try and walk. She had just purchased her first pair of Finn’s from us. To her surprise, she was able to walk without the usual pain that resulted from two ankle breaks, knee surgery and multiple heart attacks. Sandra came back to visit throughout the years and experimented with other brands we carry…Merrell’s, Ecco’s, MBT’s and Aetrex, but never felt the same relief she experienced wearing the Finn’s.”

“We spent around two hours together, establishing styles in Finn Comfort that would best fit her needs. The Jamaica was the shoe in the past that she had the most success with. Sandra left our store having purchased two pairs of Vaasa’s, two pairs of Catalina’s, Birkenstock 2-Part Sport insoles and Thorlos. Next stop for Sandra; Sedona AZ with her new walking shoes.”
