How it Works

The first step is to determine whether your shoe needs just a Half-Sole repair or Half-Sole + Toecap repair. It can be a fine line between the two!

Check out our Resoling Guide.

2. Pick a Delivery Type

You can give us your climbing shoes using our Lofoten Drop Box system, or choose Mail-In and post them to us following the instructions provided.

3. Book a Resole

Our current Turnaround Time is ***We must receive your shoes by Dec 5th in order to have them finished and shipped before Christmas***

4. Collect Your Shoes

You’ll receive a notification by email once we’ve completed your resole. We will then return them to you by mail or via your chosen drop box.

Happy Climbing!

Climbing Shoe Rubber


The type of rubber on the sole of your rock shoe is absolutely critical to performance. That is why we only resole with the best climbing shoe rubber money can buy. When you get your shoes back from us, they will perform like new with the added benefit of already being formed to your foot.

We use a range of different rubbers from Vibram, Davos, Evolv and Unparallel, click below to find out more.

Our Environmental Pledge


We care about nature and the environment. Human behaviour is having a drastically negative effect on the planet. Through making responsible behaviour changes, we can all reduce the amount of waste we produce. 20,000 pairs of climbing shoes are thrown out each year in Norway alone – resoling helps to tackle this issue.

Who We Are

We are Norway’s only dedicated climbing shoe resoling service.

Norwegian granite is as good as it gets, but unfortunately amazing rock rapidly destroys rubber. That’s why we created Arctic Soles – to keep perfectly good rock shoes from an early grave, eliminating unnecessary waste and the agony of breaking in a new pair of shoes.

Established in 2020, we are equipped to service all of Norway through both mail-in orders and our local drop box system. We will resole your climbing shoes with the best rubber on the market ensuring your shoes perform to their very best, and we use custom-made lasts to preserve your shoe’s the shape and style so they still fit you like a glove – and all for much less than the cost of a new pair – that’s it’s a solid win-win in our book.

Our workshop is in the heart of Lofoten surrounded by some of Norway’s best rock climbing. Feel free to drop in and say hi if you’re in the area. You can also contact us anytime and we’ll be happy to answer your questions or give you some local climbing beta.


Happy Climbing!
