I have four pairs of shoes that I need to send in for resole. I'm leaving for a trip on April 15th and am hoping to get them back before I leave. Quality and price are a factor too. Any suggestions? Nathan Scherneck

Evolv/Yosemite Bum in the OC is pretty fast. They did a pair of my gf's in like a day and shipped them real quick like 2 days before Christmas. You can drive over and grab a pair of the defect shoes too to hold you over while yours are getting resoled. Tristan B

Ah right! I'm actually heading to the creek. Do you know where Alf's camp setup is?

Thanks Tristan. Their site says their turnaround is 10 business days right now. Sounds like they're busy.

I'd try Rock n Resole in Boulder -- if you get them to the shop fast, they'll crank them out for you and ship them back however you want. Great work too. Hansel

+1 on Rock and Resole

I sent my to RnR last month. Once they received the shoes, it only took'em about 2 or 3 days to resole and send back.

RnR took two weeks to resole my shoes last month. I'm happy with the resole job, but not thrilled with the turnaround time.

Their website says 2-3 day turnaround, but when I talked to them on the phone, they said that is *after* a 2-3 day processing time. between the 3 days of "processing" 3 days for the actual resole, plus the weekend, it was almost 10 days before they shipped by shoes back, and another ~3 days in transit. If you're in a hurry you might look elsewhere.

I do give them thumbs up for doing a good job, though.

By the way, Alf usually camps in the cottonwoods area. He lives in a van, though, so no guarantees. He resoled a pair of my shoes when I was out there last, and the rubber was super stiff after he got done. Can't wear them on anything but crack now. Was more of a "donation to a local dirt bagger who wanted work" than a critical resole I couldn't do without.

Alf is a nice guy, though. And very good at crack.

Alf is in a pickup with a camper on the back. Unless the van is new this year. Zeke6
