First post in the MYOG forum....
I have an old pair of generic "teva" sandals. They are pretty lightweight, about 9 oz per pair and I love the way they fit my feet. Alas, the traction on the bottom has worn down. I wanted to have them resoled and was told they could not be repaired. Also, I really didn't want to add any significant weight to them, i.e Vibram soles. I've also searched online for places to resole these but at $40.00, it isn't very cost effective. So, now I'm looking for a common, readily available, lightweight and durable material that I can cut to shape and glue to the bottoms of these. Any ideas?
