Work that we perform
Resole: A resole is a general term for applying new soles to shoes. BITD shoes were inexpensive and climbers wore them to the bitter end. Before the advent of Sport climbing trad shoes needed full soles and rands. As climbing evolved and the shoes changed it became more appropriate to resole just the front “½ sole” of the shoe. When necessary the rands are repaired as well.
