I am mostly happy with their work too, but you only can get evolv rubber. My galileo's came back really soft and floppy (supposed to be edgy shoes) but i'm not sure if that is their fault or the age of the shoes. I had other shoes that were fine afterwards.

rock and resole has always done good work for me, and if you're near boulder, you can save on shipping by dropping off and picking up. They also usually are done in a week or less.

I'm about to send mine off to John Ramuta. I can report back if you're interested.

I've used Rock n Resole in Boulder several times with good results. Have done my hiking boots there too.

I sent a pair a few months ago to Ramuta's - best price after shipping and good work. I went with Onyx.

I normally use the Rubber Room in Bishop (and have for many years), but when I last called Rock & Resole had a turnaround time of a few days versus 3-4 weeks with either the Rubber Room or Yosemite Bum.

Hittin' Miguel's with the new Chimps in tow

The first time I needed resoles, I sent them to Komito Boots, as I'd heard good things & I hope to some day retire there, so I wanted to support my hopefully-future-local-business. I wasn't impressed at all. Glue everywhere. Looked like an art project. Edges not vertical. It was a pair of Miuras and a pair of Katanas.

The next resoles I needed done, I sent to Rock & Resole. A pair of Tarantulas and a pair of Mythos. Came back better than new. Very neat & smooth.

Obviously, these shoes aren't comparable (and just to clarify, these are actually mix of kids & wife's shoes; i'm getting ready to send my Cobras off to R&R in the next week) but so far R&R is my choice.

Big fan of rock and resole, I prefer them over the rubber room (the only two places ive tried) but not by much.

Yosemitebum did a horrible job on the rands of my shoes making them unwearable. Basically they changed the shape of the toe-box so that my toe nails bite into my toes and I cannot stand the pain. These were my all day trad shoes so it is not a minor change in already tight fitting shoes.

whatever you do, absolutely, positively, don't go to that place that never returns your calls, e-mails, and keeps your edging shoes for six months and only returns them as if they're crack shoes.

Just don't do it. They suck.

Goes to show you. I've been getting resoles done by Komito since the late '70s and I've always been happy with his work. If this thread goes on long enough you're going to get positive reviews and negative reviews about every resoler out there.

Been a long day brother...brain is working in short bursts. :o)

Really the 40 page R&R thread is probably all he needs. Anything past that I got nothing.

Yup.

But why doesn't that stop anyone from starting a new thread every few months?
