Resoling in SA?

Postby hannobisschoff » Thu Aug 07, 2014 4:07 pm

Hi

I just want to know who does the best re-soling in SA? I know about Rocksole in Cape Town (my Miuras are currently there), but I stay in Pretoria and they are taking REALLY long. What suggestions do you have for future resoles?
Thanks

I've busy putting up a proper listing of all resolers in SA.

see here: http://www.climbing.co.za/directory/cat/resolers/

Let me know if you have any recommendations or if anyone wants to be listed.

I'm really surprised that word of mouth has taken so long to spread around. Not only are vertical world the best in SA, they are currently better than anything we have ever had in this country.

Where do climbers send shoes for resole these days? Vertical World's website is down, making them impossible to contact (are they still operating?). Rocksole in Cape Town does a lousy job. Suggestions please!

Hi, I couldn't get the link to work but ....

There's also Durasole in 11 Wolfe Street in Wynberg, Cape Town. 012 762 1837.

They take a while (they all do as specialist work and time is needed to cure). I had a half sole done - the shoes were still quite new but the rubber at the front was peeling (bad beginner technique: dragging shoes up the rock face rather than picking up and placing) - and they came back better than new. They haven't suffered since and the material used was the real deal. The repairers there are used to doing climbing shoes and know their stuff - others I know had shoes in for repair with mine.

So, if you're in Cape Town and find a trip to the Southern Suburbs is easier than to the CBD, then use this place ....... I actually happen to live nearby and am a regular at City Rock so just ask if I can help deliver or collect. No commission - just being helpful!
