Just me with the waterfront behind me. Ice the size of golfballs kept falling down the Waterfront like clockwork while we climbed next to it. Super nice day <br />

Hey all, I've never had shoes re-soled before, mostly because before now I've used synthetic shoes and they STUNK. But now I have a pair of Anasazi VCS that I am well and trully in love with. I wanna get them resoled before its too late, but I've never done it before, and I don't really know where to go and what to ask for.

So SLC locals, where do you go to have your shoes done, or where do you send them off too?

I've heard that you can ask for different rubbers; what rubbers do you recommend and why? I climb BCC/Rock canyon quartzite and LCC granite the most.

Any pitfalls or mistakes to avoid?

Thanks everyone.

P.S. I posted this here cause I was hoping to avoid 50+ posts that involve Rock and Resole jokes and flamey responses. I'll look up the phone numbers, adresses shipping costs and all that other fun stuff. Just looking to learn from experience :)

First ascent. The Sword of Damocles... a real beauty. P. Ross on the summit. Palisade and I-70 below.

Try IME climbing shop..behind REI .. They will help

Get them resoled by a reputable resoler. The extra cost/time in shipping is usually worth it for a better job (new Anasazis aren't cheap...).

I've used Rock and Resole before and was always happy with their work. Rubber Room in Bishop is also a good one.

I've always gotten my shoes resoled with 5.10 C4 for rubber, but currently have a pair at Rubber Room getting Onyxx. Never tried it before but it's supposed to be a bit stiffer.

Sweet, thanks for the responses. Sounds like rubber room it is. If I was choosing out if the blue I would have chosen them anyway cause I love there little ad in R&I. Thanks guys

I ended up going with a local named Don Roundy. Found a add of his in REI. He says he can have it done in one day, I'll let you all know how he does!

For anyone that's intersted, I got my shoes done by Don Roundy. I dropped em off at 8:30 pm and got a call at noon the next day saying they were done. It was about 50 bucks and I'm pleased as punch. Definitely recommend him.

Im not gonna post his number cause I don't want people to think I'm advertising for him but you can find his info with a google search. Very good choice for people like me who like things done fast.
