Resoling in Cape Town area

Postby 15569373 » Wed Feb 27, 2013 6:52 pm

Could anyone recommend a good place for affordable resoling of La Sportiva climbing shoes in the greater Cape Town/ Cape Winelands area?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Send them to us, just bear in mind that there is a postal strike in Jhb at present -no end in sight. Postnet is good but expensive

I was very happy with vertical world.

I'm also in Cape Town

Good things take time though turn around was about 3 weeks.

But then I've always belived you need a few pairs of shoes any way.

good work Nigel

Any idea how much it is going to cost for resoling at Vertical World?

*edit Never mind. Found the website.

I also have a pair of shoes up for resoling. Anybody want to pitch together to reduce the postage?

Thanks for the advice. Vertical World seems to be the best bet.

Think it would sure be beneficial if more local resolers advertised here. Just a thought.
