Here at the Gear Fix, our specialty is climbing shoe resoles. We’re located a short drive from the Cascade Mountains and Smith Rock in beautiful Bend, Oregon. We pride ourselves in our attention to detail, keeping the fit you sent in to us, our climbing industry partners, and our customer service. Our goal is to keep you and your gear going for as long as possible.
We’ve got the knowledge, the experience, the tools, and of course, the rubber, to get you back out there. We partner with most of the major (and not so major) climbing shoe companies out there in order to make sure that we can put the original rubber that came with the shoe back on there. Like your shoe but want to try a different rubber? We can do that too.
We know these shoes are your babies, and we know that this cost money to do. It takes a lot of trust to send your shoes off to get stuck on a grinder. That’s why we GUARANTEE our work. If you aren’t happy with what you get back, we’ll make it right. Plain and simple.
- Half soles – $40 [No edge shoes like La Sportiva Genius and Futura – $60]
- $12 per toe cap
- Minor sewing – $7
- Little more sewing – $10
- Replacement velcro – $10 per strap
- Replacement strap w/ velcro – $15

Our List Of Rubber Choices:

Got some shoes and don’t need them anymore or don’t feel like having them resoled? Don’t just throw them away. Send them to us or drop them off here at the shop. We’ll use them for training purposes, then resole them & either donate them to local youth climbing programs OR sell them in our used gear shop and donate the funds to the Access Fund or one of our local climbing non-profits. Turns out they are just beyond re-using, we’ll recycle them for you!
AS ALWAYS, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US.
Below is a video of one of our apprentices practicing on some shoes. While it’s not perfect, it definitely shows all of the work that goes in to keep your shoes going. Enjoy:)
