They do excellent work.
I don't think any company does dual density resoles.

hope that helps...

For what you're going to pay and given the quality of the upper on Mad Rock shoes, you're better off just buying another pair. Also, if you've had a hole in your shoes that long and done a good amount of climbing on them in that time, the shoes may be beyond repair if whats under the rubber is worn out anyway.

Big Hoss Mountain Sports in Laramie, Wyoming resoles with mad rubber and does an excellent job.

Yosemite Bum resoles are really good, mad rock shoes are not. You'll end up spending more than it is worth to resole your sharks. You'll be better off buying a pair of Evolv's, maybe the defy's (they are also U.S. Made). Make sure that you resole your next shoe's before they wear down to the leather.

I'd definately agree on the quality of Evolv shoes...I own 3 pairs and love them all. I won't even consider owning a different brand. Plus, the customer service is unbeatable! And No, I don't work for the company :lol:

I'll second that. Had my Mad Rocks resoled here about a year ago. Good work that I have no problems with.

I also have never had any of the problems with my Mad Rock shoes that everyone else is having. Kinda perplexing, I've had the shoes for two years, they've had a normal amount of wear on the rubber, the one piece that came apart I sewed back on myself with no problem, and they're my favorite shoe. The two pairs of Evolvs (Predator and Defy) I've had in that time period have been shelved or traded off, though not at all for any quality problems, I just didn't like them as much. :?
