Has anyone used this firm for boot repairs? Recommendations?

I've got a pair of Scarpa Mantas and the mid sole at the heel on both boots has just started separating from the upper bits(Only had them two years) I'm just hoping they're repairable.

In reply to GrumpySod: There is a really excellent feature of this forum which very few people use or, even, seem to know exists.

Look at the top right of the home screen. It's a little button called "SEARCH"

Thank you. I thought it was too.

In reply to Oceanrower: And there is also another well known option to ignore posts that you don't like or have nothing positive to contribute. I think your name and the OP's shuold be the other way round. :-(

In reply to GridNorth: So you don't think that the 17 results that returns are what the OP wanted? Strange, that seemed to be exactly what he what he was asking for.

In reply to GridNorth:

No. GN

A lot of people are just too lazy to try and find an answer for themselves.

They just post the question and let everybody else do the work.

In reply to Oceanrower: No your advice was spot on, it was the hint of sarcasm that seemed a little unnecessary.
GridNorth - on 04 Aug 2013
In reply to Rick Graham: That's a little unfair. Perhaps there is some truth in that but I prefer to give people the benefit of the doubt and in any case this would not be a chat forum if we didn't chat.

In reply to GridNorth: Only a hint of sarcasm? Damn, I'm slipping! ;)

In reply to Oceanrower: Anyway, more to the point, how does anyone get two years out of a pair of climbing boots? I'm lucky if I get 6 months!

Where are you today? Is it raining? You seem a bit grumpy ;-))

Its supposed to be information first and chat second IMHO

In reply to Rick Graham: Home. Yes and yes. Had planned to go outdoors today. I struggle to find outdoor partners in my neck of the woods so when I eventually manage to arrange something and then get rained off it's particularly frustrating.

From your posts I get the feeling that yuo have "sussed" who I am? Please keep it to yourself I got sick of the abuse on here and I tend to take it a little less personally by being anonymous.
Rick Graham on 04 Aug 2013
In reply to GridNorth:

Yes, sussed it out I think.

The amateur detective in me linked some comments in your various aliases and emails.

I am working on ALC at the moment, Ted has his theories but I think he is wrong for once.
GridNorth - on 04 Aug 2013
In reply to Rick Graham: ALC??? If Ted has a wife called Christine I know him as well. No more clues, I don't want to have to invent yet another persona.

That's a relief it looks like you have got it wrong, I haven't received an email. :-)

But you are a keen poker player.

I don't. You are the one who announced that you had. "YHM".
Rick Graham on 04 Aug 2013
In reply to GridNorth:

I am getting confused. :-)
GridNorth - on 04 Aug 2013
In reply to Rick Graham: 5 posts back you said "yhm" which in my book means You Have Mail. Is that not what you meant?
Rick Graham on 04 Aug 2013
In reply to GridNorth:

YHM means you have mail.

Check your inbox 's again in all your universes.

I might have been bluffing.

Cannot be bothered reading all of the replies above many of which are not helpful to you.

I used Cheshire for resole of Nepal Extremes and climbing shoes. Excellent job, service, superb value and their website/contact seemed to answer all my concerns. I will use them again soon. They will advise you if boots can be refurbished and I think will also repair broken lace rings etc if possible.

In reply to gilliesp: Thank you for a useful, informative reply. So much nicer than some arseholes who now inhabit UKC and think that they are so much more clever than anybody else. In fact they show themselves up for what they really are.
GridNorth - on 04 Aug 2013
In reply to GrumpySod: You could also try Feetfirst and Llanberis Resoles although I have only ever used them for rock shoe repairs.

If you are including me in this sweeping statement,

I consider myself fairly knowledgeable, after climbing for over forty years, who would not be classed as experienced. I have also earned my living from the sport for 17 of those years.
I like to learn new tricks and techniques, you cannot work it all out on your own.
I also know that on the crag,hill or at work for that matter, we are all only one silly mistake from a disaster,

Take care

Rick

In reply to Rick Graham: I suspect that it was aimed at me. However, I maintain that my answer was useful. It's a shame that more people don't look there first.

I have used them and they are great.
they re-soled my Scarpa charmoz for around 40.

In reply to andyd1970: Thank you. Another intelligent response.

I've just had my Scarpa SLs retreaded by CSR, job looks great. Haven't used them in anger yet.

With your damage, I'd take them in so he can have a proper look.

In reply to GrumpySod: I have used them a lot for rock shoes, dress shoes and boots. They did a pair of Sportivas for me and they came back better than expected - I was really expecting them to be good for walking the dog and save wearing my other boots but I got another few years out of them. I would easily recommend them.
