Where to resole climbing shoes in Taiwan?


There are not many options of resoling climbing shoes in Taiwan.  The most popular shops used to be the “Doctor of Hiking Shoes (登山鞋醫生)” in Taipei and a shoemaker in Tainan City.  However, neither of them is specialized in climbing shoes.  After resoling, the rubber and shape of shoes are quite different from the original, and repaired shoes typically cannot last for a long time before splitting or peeling again.

Huo-Yun (火雲鞋神) is the first professional climbing shoe resoler in Taiwan.  Although not as cheap as the options above, it uses Vibram XSGrip rubber, and considers the original shape and special features of each pair of shoes.  It is the current best option to prolong the life of your beloved, high-class climbing shoes.
