I've used shoe glue on some Worx by red wings shoes before. Worked for the problem I had. The inner collar was separating from the outer part of the shoe. I don't know how it would hold up if the product were to be exposed to the elements.

used this stuff called lexel or something like that (think i spelled it right), works pretty good me. cleaned the area thought would be the best place to apply, clamped it up best could and let them sit a few days. wearing a pair of boots now now i fixed up from months ago, still holding. hardware store had it here in town for bout 5 or 6 bucks, in a clear tube.

Lexel is crazy strong, as is a pl400 or pl projects. Also found at the local hardware store in tubes. They are all commercial adhesives, with a lot of power

Marine adhesive. Small tube in either white or black. 3M brand. Big box stores carry off brands but same basic product.

Takes a full week to cure for optimal functional strength.

I repaired some rafter sandals where the nylon anchors yanked out. Thus far has held well. Used it for attaching bilge pump housing to inside the hull of a watercraft...works well in wet environments. That's why it's called Marine Adhesive.

was wondering if anyone heard this.. fixed a pair of sandals for a family member few months ago, haven't had a report back yet on if they are holding up or what. remember the sandals requiring a little bit more workmanship than for my boots have done somewhat, didn't really care somewhat as long as it held.

super glue usually works and is really inexpensive.

My Shoe Goo didn't really work well as they came apart again. I have bought a new pair of kicks since (New Balance 965 country walk/hiking) but I have digested the info here for maybe future use.
