With climbing shoes costing in the £100 region now, there’s never been a better time to get your trusty workhorses re-soled. Not only will you save money, you’ll avoid throwing shoes away (or storing them in the loft forever) and will equally do your bit for the environment. They will come back virtually like new – though they’ll probably still retain your unique aroma!
Our resole partner has all the patterns for the main brands, models and sizes so the rubber they use starts out the same shape as your original shoes.
Through quality craftsmanship and a rigorous process, they work on your shoes, keeping the downturn and hollow where appropriate.
All you have to do is chose your rubber and decide whether you need a rand repair, complete the order and send your shoes to us. The turn round time is approx 2 weeks.
Do I need a rand repair?
Essentially, if there is any kind of hole in the rand, you’ll need a repair. If you feel the point of the shoe and it’s softer than the area around it, you’ll almost certainly want a rand repair this time so that the rand doesn’t wear out before the sole.
If you don’t order a rand repair but the factory feels that it’s necessary, you’ll be contacted and charged the extra £10 for the repair before we return your shoes. In completing your order, you accept this. The factory will not undertake unnecessary repairs.
