27 climbing shoes have been re-soled on Sihlquai in Zurich for 244 years. Every day, Gecko Resoling's shoemakers breathe new life into used finches. The bouldering legend par excellence: Fred Nicole.

Climbing finches are usually not the most comfortable footwear shortly after purchase. Here and there it presses on the toes, because every foot is different. But a shoe is not a rigid construct and adapts to the shape of the foot over time. But soon the moment will come when the life of the sole is coming to an end. It would be a shame to throw away the climbing finches and buy new ones.

Resole climbing shoes is financially viable and ecological

Fortunately, climbing shoes can be re-soled without any problems. This is not only worthwhile for the reasons of comfort mentioned, but also financially. And of course it also makes sense from an ecological point of view not to throw away the footwear as a whole.

The shoemaker from Gecko Resoling are professionals in their field. They have been soling all kinds of climbing finches since 1992 and ensure a long climbing finch existence with their precise craft. The legendary Five Ten rubber Stealth C4 is used in the sole. This offers great friction with maximum durability.

And there is probably no other shoe soling service that has a more famous craftsman at the start than Gecko Resoling: The bouldering legend is part of the team Fred Nicole. So what could be cooler than getting your old climbing shoes from DEM Boulderer up to scratch? We think: nothing!
