I'm looking to get a couple pairs of shoes re-soled but have yet to find where. Somewhere around the twin cities?

There is not a place in the twin cities, when I lived there I would ship mine to rock and resole, (I think?), or the rubber room. Anyway the point is you have to ship them. rock and resole has an online form you fill out indicating what you want done and what kind of rubber you want them to use. It sucks loosing your shoes at this point of the season but they are pretty quick. I think they had mine a little over two weeks, in the off season. . . things might be different if they are busy.

Give them a call or shot them a message, I'm sure other people on here know way more about this topic than I do so you might get better suggestions but I would plan on shipping them to CO or CA. The sooner the better.

Give a call to Thrifty Outfitters, they used to take shoes for resoling. I think they outsource the job, but you used to be able to drop them off there and pick them up again about 4 or 5 days later.

There is no chance of getting your shoes back in 4-5 days from Thrifty, they simply send your shoes to the exact same places suggested above- and they don't send them in right away. The shoes might sit in the shop for a week before they even leave MN. If you want it done right take out the middle man and do it yourself.

My personal experience with The Rubber Room has been nothing short of fantastic. Every winter I go to J-Tree, and summers the Black Hills and those places really chews up shoes. Tony and Nan have always had my shoes back to me within 30 days. Steve Komito in Estes Park also did a pair for me BITD and does an excellent job.

Thrifty doesn't do shoes, so you might as well send them yourself.
