Just a quick post to let people know that I'm now doing dotty rubber resoles for approach shoes - or any shoes for that matter, skate shoes and flat pedal bike shoes work particularly well.

All details can be found on my website here: http://www.llanberisresoles.com

I'll also be doing pick-up/drop-offs from V12 in the Beacon (as well as V12 in Llanberis and the Indy.)

For dotty rubber I'm using Vibram's New Boulder - as used on the La Sportiva Ganda - its pretty similar to the classic 5.10 Dotty Stealth just a bit more durable (IMO).

And a quick thanks for all the support and feedback I've had from UKC customers during this first few months of getting started.

I should add that a dotty resole is 30 plus postage on a simple flat sole or 35 if there is a integral rand you want replacing.

How sticky is the vibram stuff compared to the dotty stealth?

I'd say they are identical in terms of grip/stickiness.

In reply to torquil: Thanks for the excellent job on the LaSportiva rock boots. I will let you know about picking up the Kamets when I know more about my plans for Grooved Arete this Autumn, providing the rain stops!
Thanks again

Just had a pair of re-soled Katanas back from Torquil. They feel just as good as I remember, and it looks like a really high quality job. Nice work, thanks again.
