SCARPA shoes and boots are built to the highest standard and should serve you for many years of use. However, just like tyres on a car, the rubber parts of a boot, shoe or rock shoe can wear down with use, and that’s why we offer a full re-sole service.
Any SCARPA shoe or boot with the resole possible logo have the ability to have the sole replaced extending the lifespan of your footwear.
You can choose to have your product resoled directly with us and our footwear experts in Italy or for a quicker service you may want to utilise one of our preferred partners in the UK. See below for contact details.
If you opt to re-sole your footwear with us, then the footwear is sent back to our factory in Italy. Once there, trained experts with a lifetime of making boots and shoes will start working on your footwear. Re-soling involves completely removing the existing used sole unit, cleaning and preparing the footwear, and then placing the footwear back on the original last (the last is the original model or shape around which your SCARPA boot or shoe is constructed, and is a critical part of what makes SCARPA footwear so special). This crucial difference means the shoe/boot is rebuilt around the original shape, just as if it was fresh out of the factory. Once the footwear has been re-lasted, only then is the whole sole unit (not just the rubber outsole) is replaced with the newest version.
Re-soling not only extends the lifespan of your footwear, it also returns it to its very best level of performance.
While we endeavour to process resole requests as quickly as possible, because of the transfer to and from Italy, as well as the time it takes for a skilled expert to carry out the work, please allow a minimum of eight weeks for this service.
Please see below an outline of the costs you can expect to pay for our Italian service.
If you decide to use our factory re-sole service then we ask that you pay the local postage cost to us and we will cover the cost of returning them to you. Please use some form of trackable postage like Royal Mail Tracked or DPD.

The SCARPA resole service is popular with our customers and athletes alike. SCARPA Athlete Emma Twyford tells us why she resoles her climbing shoes:
“I used the resole service because I really love the Chimera and feel like reusing a shoe is a better option than continually ordering new shoes from an environmental perspective.
The resole was fantastic and came back good as new with the pro of not having to break them in on the fit. It means my half size down feel comfortable straight away and the precision is just as good as a new shoe.”
