So my La Sportiva Mythos (my first pair of shoes) are no where near needing new soles, but Im the type of person that once I think about something I have to find out right away.

Pretty much I'm looking for any information possible
Where to resole?
How much does it usually cost?
Can I resole with soles other than la sportiva?
if so recommendations?
Pretty much if you have any information you want to share I will gladly take.

Rock and resole. their site has prices. they can do other rubber if you didn't like the sportiva rubber. i like it so i keep using it

usually a 1-2 week turn around back to me on E coast. probably a bit faster if you are closer

I've used rock and resole for probably 10 resoles on various shoes, and they've never dissapointed.

it usually costs me about $45 plus shipping, you can save yourself some money though if your rands/toes aren't too worn, you can skip the toe caps, but I pretty much always get them.

I've always gone with stealth rubber, and I've never had a reason to explore other rubbers. The 5.10 rubber was much better than the rubber that came on my boreal shoes.

I definitely reccomend resoling shoes. I know that you can find shoes on sales that are the same price as resoling an old pair, but resoled shoes are way better, more comfortable, reliable, and way less time to break in.

Another vote for rock and resole, and I always go with Stealth C4 on my shoes.
