Rand Repair:

In order to replace the rand a 1/2 resole is also necessary due to how rock climbing shoes are constructed. Rand is fixed onto the shoe first and then the sole of a shoe is attached over the rand. Because of this, we will not know if we need to do a rand repair tell after the sole has been removed. If the rand is almost worn through we will contact you and get approval for replacing. Replacing the worn rand is a must to prolong the life of the resole. We will never unnecessarily replace the rand.
