If you're like me, you hate to buy new shoes, you have trouble finding decent shoes, you really love your old shoes.... this is your Instructable!
I have a pair of sandals I love, but every time I wear them for too long my feet hurt due to the wear and tear of the insole. Before spending money buying new sandals that will hurt as well... I wanted to try to restore them. And I managed to do it!

Step 1: Preparing the Foam
Take your poor old shoes and a piece of foam. Put the shoe on the foam and trace the shoe. Do the same with the other shoe.
Once you have the shoes silhouette cut them and place them on the sandal to know if they fit. If not, cut them until they fit perfectly.
Step 2: Gluing the Foam
Once you have the foam insole ready, glue it onto the shoe. Press it until the glue dries.
DON'T WEAR THEM RIGHT AWAY TO ADHERE THE INSOLES. THEY WILL MOVE AWAY BECAUSE OF YOUR WEIGHT!!! (Believe me, I tried it....)
Step 3: New Sandals!
And ready to go! I'm very surprised of the result because they become very comfortably and they will live some more time :) Now I can walk hours with them without hurt!
I'm very proud of this trick, I think I will repeated in some more shoes!
