I have had 5 pairs of shoes resoled at YB. Two pairs of evolv demortos, one pair of evolv rockstars, one pair of Scarpa Visions, and one pair of 5.10 Galileos. I have noticed three major issues in all of my resoles with them. 1.) IF YOU SEND YOUR SHOES TO YB, THEY WILL COME BACK 1/2 TO 1 SIZE LARGER. 2.) If they are not an evolv shoe, they will come back shaped like an evolv shoe. 3.) They generally take a long time to ship back to you. I capitalized the sizing issue because that should be considered when sending them in. In regards to the second issue, I sent in 5.10 galileos (which are great for edging with their pointed toe and unique shape) only to have them come back shaped exactly like an evolv shoe. As a result, the shoe didn't fit anymore. In regards to the third issue, their delivery time has always varied between 3 weeks and 2 months for me. I would only recommend sending shoes to YB if you are getting Evolv shoes resoled (unless you don't mind having your shoes shaped like evolv shoes), don't mind an increase in size (i.e. getting a pair of comfy shoes for long routes and crack), and if you aren't in a hurry. Their work is good, the rubber is sticky, and your shoes will never delaminate.
