/ La Sportiva Nepal Resole Question
I have a pair of La Sportiva Nepals with a good upper condition, however I have worn the sole out totally and also worn most of the front 'green plastic' that holds the front crampon bail.
So my question is, is it possible to get these resoled so the front bail would still work on them? And from your experience, would doing this change the shape of the inside of the boot? And if this is the case do you think that I should just give up and buy a new set of boots?
Oh and if yes for a resole, where is the best place to do this?
I've been pleased with the service I've had with Feet First in Chesterfield on my Nepal Extremes: http://www.feetfirst.resoles.co.uk/
Give them a ring and see what they advise, but note that they can have long waits while soles are on order from La Sportiva, so you may have to wait a while before you get your boots back from them.
Apparently Lancashire Sports Repairs won't do a replacement midsole.
Feet first did mine, for about £125 including the midsole, I had worn through to the green bit. Feels a pretty similar fit to before.
