A few days ago I was taking off a pair of boots that I have owned for many years and the glue that secured the sole to the shoe let loose. Almost two thirds of the sole separated from the shoe. Remembering that I had some Shoe Goo I applied a liberal amount onto the top of the sole and used some spring clamps to hold it all together. Waited 24 hours and then took a q-tip and applied some more Shoe Goo to the seam where the sole attaches to the shoe. Waited another 24 hours. As a side note: I noticed that it smells just like the old model glue that I use to use as a kid. Have to say that the Shoe Goo REALLY works! The shoe is as good as new. When Shoe Goo dries it remains flexible so you don't have to worry about breaking the adhesive bond by wearing the shoes and walking/running. The stuff really works. At ~$3.50 a tube it really pays to keep a tube or two around for emergency shoe repair when running to a store may not be possible. I usually find Shoe Goo in the shoe dept at Walmart/Target and similar stores.
