So I was told that climbing shoes can't be resoled more than once.Just wondering if this is a definite truth or if it's just a best practice. Greg Pouliot

I've heard of shoes going through their fourth, fifth and beyond, it's just what the last can handle.

After the first resole they usually don't hold their original shape, so it probably doesn't matter after the first anyway.

Thanks for the reply. I figured as much, as mine lost a bit of the downturn after the first resole. They still kick ass though, so I'm fine with that.

I have a pair of Anasazis that have been resoled at least 4 times. They are a bit soft now, but I use them for the gym so that's fine. Ryan Williams
