You can fit 4 pairs of shoes in a medium flatrate box (the longer skinny one) and ship them for 12.35. It's still priority mail.

Positive Resoles did fast, quality work for me recently. I would patronize Locker again in the future.

Cleaning up in Jenny Lake.

I had Locker resole my Anasazis. He almost died from the smell I'm sure. I got out last week and finally led The Green Adjective clean on the very same shoes.

another +1 for Rock and Resole. I sent them my 5.10 grandstone, 5.10 anasazi blanco, and jet 7s. Quick return and excellent job. BUT the sole on the Jet 7s are kinda peeling off from the toes. I'm not sure if this is common for downturned shoes, which I can understand because of the pressure being applied into the angle the sole is glued to the toe. Rest of the shoes are good

Barry Chamber's from Barry's Resoles is the best. I have been having him do my resoles for years. He always asks lots of questions so he can customize to exactly what I need.

HE does not advertise. but i have nothing but great resoles in Chico, Ca at Preston's Shoe Repair. He only does C4 at this point because that's all we local climbers ask for. 7 day turnaround, he has a system which guarantees it! Great toe fixes, he has resoled TC pros better than other places i have sent them. All in all, it's the only place take my shoes. (Help's that it is sorta local, too)
And no, i do not work for, own, or otherwise have anything to do with this place, just my fave NORCAL resole.

In all sincerity, it is really COOL to be reading all the nice things being posted about peoples favorite resoler(s).

Speaking only for myself (and I would guess other resolers as well), it is very much appreciated! (Talking about ALL the compliments, towards ALL the resolers)

I've gotta think that resoling is a Dark Art at best, and I'm always impressed when the results turn out well.

Having said that, I've resoled maybe 10 pairs of shoes at Rock & Resole in the past few years and every one of them turned out excellently. Not only have they held up, they are very neat & clean resoles.

Locker...you'll be next to try.

Matt,

much appreciated, but I am not trying to drum up business with my above post.

Stick with your FAVORITE resoler. They WILL appreciate it!

;-)


PS: But if you do want to send them my way, that's of course fine, too!

Hey, I'm thinking of sending you my Scarpa Feroce's. This is probably a really stupid question, but have you done shoes with a "love bump" or whatever you call the little divot between the toes and forefoot?

In the NY/VT/Quebec area, The Shoe Doctor in Plattsburgh, NY has done several resoles for lots of my buddies, myself and family. Not the quickest, but better than the soles from the factory. A year later after my last resole, still not a single thing out of place. I won't take my climbing stuff anywhere else... The dude is a hard core climber . So he knows what's what and always has good tips and advice. Just good things to say about that place.

I predict this thread will hit ten pages and locker will contribute upwards of 30% of the content. Look deep into my magic crystal balls....

Locker, I got Acopas ready to send. You in Cali or Colorado? Open for business at the moment? Where do I find your deets, O Buzzed One?

Not a success story but could potentially be. Do these look like they can be resoled or did I wait too long on the shoe with the actually sole visible?

I've sent shoes worst than that to rock and resole and they did a great job. I'm climbing just as hard with the resoles

My shoes are always way worse than that when they send them in and they have come back fine if sent to a good resoler.

Wilson On The Drums,

the shoes you pictured above are repairable. Most any resoler should be able to handle the job for you.

Slab...

Resoling gives you some good options too with newer/stickier rubber if you want. Mine had holes all around the toes, but the leather was intact. As long as the leather is intact, i.e. the uppers, they can pretty much resole anything. I went with the stickiest rubber out there for my last resole. That's kind of a nice thing if you like a certain shoe but the rubber is shite on them...
