After you get done climbing be sure to head up to ...
Another for Komito, the grumpy curmudgeon he is. I took an old beat up pair of Kaukulators up there and he made them like new. And in reality he is a great guy. Not many people with that level of experience either. It's more or less a 1 man operation. Every now and then he will have another guy come and help out. Even now, after moving back east, I still send them out there to him. Adam Paashaus

I just had 4 pairs done by Yosemite Bum. They did an excellent job on all the shoes. Several years ago, I had a pair of anasazis resoled by another resoler and they did such a horrible job that I didn't think they could be fixed. Yosemite Bum made them good as new. Derrick W

Been sending my shoes to Rock and Resole for years. Had a shoe blow out 2 days before a big climbing trip. They did a 24 hour turn around for me at the last minute. Got my business for a long time for that one! ROC

Rock N Resole because you get your shoes back 10 days from the day you ship them and they have always given me top notch work on my La Sportiva Miuras. Rubber Room took a month and a half to get my shoes back to me.

At the matching crux
I've had 6 pairs done by Yosemite Bum thus far (mostly Sportiva shoes, FWIW) and they've all been excellent workmanship with ridiculous turnaround times... under a week, usually.

The sole they put on my Miura was cleaner and smoother than the factory sole from LS.

I've used Barry's Resoles, I think he's in Fresno, or somewhere close to there. Exemplary work. I've used the Rubber Room, they do good work, too. I've got a pair of slippers I'm about to send off to Positive Resoles. I like that guy's style, so I have confidence those will be scintillatingly good work, as well. Share the love, ya'll. Kirk B.

That's good to know. I just sent two pairs of Mythos to YB last week, and was wondering (after the fact) whether others liked their work, or not. I chose them mainly for their stated quick turnaround time of 10 days as listed on their website. I've used our Vegas local Flyin' Brian's Resoles in the past, and was happy with the work but the shop was closed at the time I needed to have my shoes resoled.

I send two pairs of TC Pros to Yosemite bum last summer and overall they turned out great. A fast turn around time and great customer service. One pair had a small defect in the resole rubber and after contacting them, they gave me a partial refund. I'll be sending them more shoes in the future. drtyner

+1. I've had too-numerous-to-count resoles done by R&R over the years and have always been pleased with the job and, very importantly, the turn around time--always less than 14 days.

Very happy with my resole of my La Sportiva Mythos through Cascade Cobbler (Mazama, WA): cascadecobbler.com/ - I went with 4.2mm Onyx and it's been working great. I had to resole 6 months after buying the shoes because I went through a period of learning how to gently manage the feet (and therefore tore a hole in the rand doing too much foot drag). I haven't had a problem since and my shoes are bomber!

Enjoy!

Sorry to resurrect this, but I haven't found any feedback on this.

Have you had them do the rand on the top of the toe before?

With the supermoccs gone, I've been considering sending my regular Mocs off to them to get some more rubber on top. Has anyone done something similar and how did it turn out?
