Time to Resole my Mythos?

After a day of edging I noticed one of the soles on my Mythos has started to form a hole. There is still rubber underneath as you can see from the pictures, but I'm wondering if it is better to just get it resoled now? Thanks for any input in advance.

Thank you. Also, since it's only with one shoe, would you have both resoled so that they're the same and to save on shipping, etc?

Based on what I can see from the pictures above, the shoe is due for a resole even without the hole, so yes, send the pair in.

In general you want to resole before the rubber is thin enough to get a hole punched in it from climbing.

I love my Mythos, but the "thin feel" of the shoe to begin with makes it challenging to determine when it's time to resole.

I appreciate the replies, this helped to give clarity. Russ - I was thinking the same thing, which is why I asked about my other shoe, and was pretty surprised that I had already worn through one.

I always get a hole straight through to my big toe on the Mythos. Like punched right through the rubber and the leather. I love these shoes. But by the time I notice they need a resole, it's too late haha.
