Holes in climbing shoes

Hi all!

I frequently get holes in the toes of my climbing shoes, meaning they need to be regularly replaced. This could be due to my climbing style.

Can anyone recommend any shoe makes which are stronger around the toes? I'm looking for more technical climbing shoes, a fan of la sportiva fit but keep getting holes in these too.

I currently wear la LA sportiva Kataki. Would you recommend resoling current shoes with la sportiva supplier or getting some new ones?

Thank you!

Where are the holes and after how long are you getting them??

Sounds like you need to improve your footwork. 

Unfortunately any technical shoe is going to wear out faster than a comfort shoe as the rubber is thinner to increase sensitivity. If you want harder wearing go for a comfort shoe.

In my experience La Sportiva are one of the worst for holes in toes. I swear they just don't put enough rubber there.
