Got myself a pair of weavers yesterday, easily the most comfortable pair of shoes i've ever had. Feel like slippers! (no grandad)

Bought some Birkenstock Arizonas for a holiday the other day and the felt that backs the inner side of the leather straps cut the top of my feet to bits.
I might be imagining it but I'm sure that I had a pair years ago that were all leather and didn't have this felt backing. Took a bit of wearing in but were butter after a while.
Can anyone confirm?
EDIT: Looking at the website it seems like full leather ones are still available. I must have gone for some cheapo model.
As you were.

Yeah, I think those felt ones are the ones you find in TKMAXX

They're great. Stay with the crepe.

quest you should be able to get crepe done relatively easily. dark crepe is near impossible though. got some cp chelseas that need it and I have no idea what to do

It's definitely possible to resole the crepe, it's a bit of a pain getting the old sole off so some places won't be keen to do it - don't be put off if someone says it can't be done and try somewhere else.
Theres a place on Goodge Street that would do it im sure, I can't remember the name sorry
