I recently had two pairs of climbing shoes die in a very similar fashion: the right toe blows out, leaving a flapping piece of rubber near the bottom tip of the shoe (see photos). This is very different than my previous shoe deaths, where a deep-and-widening “V” develops in the rubber around the toe, until you’re climbing on/through the rand.
I presume this has something to do with my footwork, and I would like to know what it may be so I can work on improving it/preventing these blowouts in the future.
Possibly relevant is the fact that both pairs of shoes had been previously resoled. That included new toe caps though, so I don’t think this should be a problem where the rand is giving out under the sole. (Not sure how far under the shoe the new toe caps go, but maybe the connection between the toe cap and the original rand is weak and that’s causing the problem?)
