People often ask where it is possible to resole a pair of climbing shoes in Thailand.
The only known place where this can be done is in Railey, by Khun Aod.

Some info:
- He repairs up to 20 to 30 pairs a month, using vibram brand rubber sourced in Europe.
- It will take him up to 5 days and it will cost you the fixed price of 1400 THB, plus a small extra fee if you want him to send you your shoes back by post. For Bangkok for example, it is 1500 THB, including the shipment back.
- You can find K. Aod at Tex Rock Climbing shop on Railey East. Alternatively, you can also send him the shoes by post to:

Khun Aod Somsak Tongkaew
240/3 moo 5, Baan Ao Nam Mao,
Tambol Sai Thai, Amphur Muang,
Krabi 81000

Before sending the shoes, give him a call to 089 724 5525 or to Tex Rock Climbing shop to 095 420 4825 to arrange details. If you are not confident with your Thai, ask a Thai friend to call him for you as K. Aod's English is limited. Very likely, he will ask you to send the shoes first, he will repair them and will then ask you to proceed with the payment before he sends them back to you.

The result looks like this:
