resoling and custom ARE done in the good ole US of A by American workers. If you want a new pair assembled in the US order them from rechaco. A tad more, but that's what you can expect from American made.

As far as glue, this is not a new company problem, they have had trouble with the 5.10, stealth, pro, sticky sole for at least 6 years.

The company rocks, they continue to support a program giving shoes to the shoeless. I would say the performance has not changed one bit since I have been wearing and buying their sandals (8 years).

I have had great success re-gluing the soles on Chacos by using Aquaseal liberally, parking my car on top of the shoes overnight (one tire on each shoe, being careful with the buckle), wiping off the excess glue early on, and letting dry for a couple of days. If you can find felt with a heavy duty backing I'm sure it would work, provided you remove the old sole adequately.

Thanks everyone. I will give them a call and ship them.
Randaddy, thats funny. Never really tried that before, maybe I will give it a shot. Andy is the one that does the business side, he probably has better success with that approach than I would.

Had a pair of older Chacs redone in June. While there they said the webbing was fraying prematurely and replaced those no charge. Got brand new feeling sandals for $36.

Great experience for me.

Thanks for all the advice. Just got my Chacos back with new soles. Excellent work and they are beater than ever. Thanks again and kudos to the Rechaco crew.
