      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Upcoming trip - need shoe repairs first

Recommended Posts

OK, so I’m need of some shoe repairs. I’ve got a week-long trip planned for early October, so time may be an issue. A search of this site wasn’t really forthcoming with much info on who blows and who doesn’t (with respect to shoe repairs, at least rolleyes.gif ).

 

I’ve used Dave Page in the past, but he was kinda snotty, but reasonably priced (then) and on time. So, with a month left before the trip, who do I send my dogs to for new rands and half-soles?

 

Barrabes?

Rumatas?

Dave Page?

 

TIA

I suggest Ramuta's. If you tell him you need them by a specific date I'm sure he will get them to you (unless he is totally swamped). From what I remember it took no more than two weeks. He did a great job and didn't even charge me for fixing the seams that were falling apart.

Thanks Jopa and Rudy. Either of you guys have a phone number and/or address for them so I can get them shipped off this weekend?

I believe you can drop your shoes off at Vertical World in Seattle; John Ramuta picks them up on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Call to confirm this. I agree with Rumr, you basically get a new shoe, when John is done.
