Resole for Sportive Gandas

I have a pair of La Sportiva Ganda approach shoes that are in need of resoling. This seems like an atypical climbing shoe resole. Any thoughts or recommendations?

I am curious to hear about this as well. I have heard that Gandas are hard to resole because the midsole is soft and disintegrates when you try to resole it. Hopefully that isn't true.

Rock n resole in Boulder will resole them!

A big part of justifying their unprecedented high price was that they are resole-able. I don't own any, so I don't have any skin in this game, but it would suck if they posed any problem.

I sent a pair that were quite worn to Rock and Resole in Boulder. They did an excellent job, quickly and for a reasonable price.

My resoled ones (done by Ramuta) turned out better than my fresh pair. They'll have at least a second resole in them, too.

Thanks everyone.

Rock and resoles done mine twice. I was told they can't get the exact same dot rubber but whatever they put on is just as sticky and looks the same. (Like the dot) Might be more durable too.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
