Mion Sandals Update

I own a pair of Mion sandals and they’re the best sandals I’ve ever owned but my insoles are starting to breakdown. I’ve been trying to track them down for awhile to get replacement insoles because the shoes are still in awesome shape.

In my research, I found out that Mion were a Timberland Line.  In contacting Timberland, here’s the answer I got about replacements.

“Thank you for your interest in Timberland products.  Unfortunately, the style you have requested has been discontinued and we have no stock or parts in our warehouses.  It is not likely that you will find that style at this time since the Mion company closed years ago and was not purchased by anyone else.”

“I did a search and the Mion brand are still being sold on Ebay.”

“You can also use the Stores Locator on the website to find Timberland Stores and Authorized Timberland Retailers in your area.”

So, that’s that! If anyone knows where I can get insole replacements for my Mion’s, size 12 or 13, please drop me a line.

    I need the same thing. Same size. Did you ever find the insoles?

    Thanks for your post. I bought my son a pair of these sandals two years ago and he wears them from April – September here in VA. He has several pair of Keens. I too have been digging all over to find out about what happend to Mion. Just to add to what you have found the designer of the Mion was a former Keen employee who went out on his own and his design must have been bought by Timberland. Good luck in your search. I’m trying desprately. to find another pair for my 8 year old on Ebay.

    I’m still wearing my 7 year old Mions with stinky worn out insoles too. I found a shop in Wales UK selling Mions last year. I’m off there again this weekend and if they still have any I will let you know. x

    I still wear mine. The shoes are in great shape but the lining onthe insoles has finally pulled off. If you find a source for replacements, I would love to hear about it. Thanks.

    I have two pairs. 6 years old. Insoles can be washed but don’t dry. I have wore out beyond repair one set. I too called timberland years ago. I have not been able to find my size any where. The best sandals I have ever owned. I’m considering purchasing some other band insoles to stick in them.

    I’m looking at buying some new insoles for my Mion’s from REI. They have a line of insoles and may have one suitable pair but they are $40+ just for the insoles but it may beat wearing the shoes without them.

    Mion sandals. Best shoes I’ve ever, ever owned. Only shoes I’ve worn for the past 15 years that let me forget about my feet and shoes for as long as I had them on. I wish I’d bought ten pairs when I had the chance, as the two pairs I did buy (and wore constantly)are now worn to the point of shredded soles. I was really crushed to learn they are no longer available. They allowed me an overall quality of life that no other shoe I’ve tried can touch. Sigh. Forgive the whining, but I mourn them every day and was moved to vent to a fellow fan.

    I still have mine and have found some possible alternate insoles at REI. Of course, I haven’t bought them yet but I’ve thought about it. LOL. I still wear my Mion’s without them.

    I currently have 3 pairs on sale on ebay. They were gently used and closest kept. I already sold 2 pairs w good reviews. I have one size 13 and the 2 sized 12.
