Hi,
I would like to know how you are repairing your shoe when there is only small crack on the edges.. Like on the front of the shoe or on the side, on the join, when the sole is a bit open. Is there a special glue,.. or tape?..

I know that all the sole can be changed.

Thanks

Let me know if it is not clear enough, the only thing I want to do is small touch up, since the opening is too small to change the complete sole...

Yes, but you don't think that the rubber can be pealing more if nothing is done?

I had this problem on my 3rd resole and the rubber began to peel away real bad.

If you have to use something, check out Shoe Goo, it works great and doesn't seem to adversely impact the climbing. You can find it at any shore repair shop or places like WAL-MART.

That's norman for just a little bit to dalam, won't affect performance. The most common wear for a beginner is the rand. This is due to bad technique, like dragging the toe against the rock/wall instead of placing it with precision. I ruined my rands in 2 months when I first started.

To repair major delams, use contact cement, and follow the directions !!!

"3rd resole" ??? After 2, you should just get another pair brutha.

You ignore the problem only if you dont have a problem spending another $8 on a resole. Or even chancing that you may not be able to resole after the damage is done. How long have you had them? If you have not done too much climbing in them, you can send them back to the manufacturer, and they will fix them. If they are getting kinda old and you want a quick fix, go and buy either ShoeGoo or BargeCement. Then you clean both the sole of the shoe, and the rand(part that wraps under the sole)apply small amount of glue to each side. Once you have the glue on, hold it together with some electrical tape for 24 hours. After that, the glue will be set, and you should be able to rub off the excess glue with you fingers. But if the sole is split at the rand, or there is visible damage to the rand, then you need to get it fixed professionally.
