Honestly why do people have such boners for fixing shit with half measures when buying a new thing is so incredibly cheap and easy?

Shoo Goo costs $6

A 5 foot cable costs $0.79

Shoo goo will hold but for how long? How long until the actual wire starts breaking, not just the rubber sheath? You can get 8 brand new cables for the price of one of those shoo goo things.

Just... gah! Why don't people realize that sometimes the simple solution is the best?

Looks like shoe goo. A lot of pitchers use it to protect the shoe on their back foot so it doesn't rip open. I use it on mine and it works really well, it's also cheap.

This stuff is magic, I've repaired several hiking boots with similar problems. It will last quite a while.

u/auroralovegood · 6 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Have you ever heard of Shoe Goo? it's one of those indispensable products for me. If a shoe starts to leak or come apart it's so easy to glue and make waterproof again.

I think we buy ours at the local hardware store but it's one of those items that I think everyone should own. Apparently I walk weird, and I wear holes in my right shoes/boots, right on the pad of my foot. I've gotten months of extended wear out of my boots that look good otherwise!

Get some shoe goo! Use an old credit/gift/rewards card to spread it around evenly to smooth out the divots, maybe add a layer to protect the smoothed out part under the balls of your feet, and give it 2 days to cure. It's tough stuff and added a good three-five months to the soles of my running/walking/work sneakers.

u/pyroglass · 3 pointsr/Wishlist

this stuff is amazing, if it's just the sole coming off

u/StealthyVex · 3 pointsr/ActionFigures

Those are some amazing looking scaled boots.

A shame they are separating like that.

I have no experience with the scaled versions for figures, so no idea if this suggestion will work or not...but I did wear Doc Martens for years, and had the sole separate, on a few different pairs.

When this happened I used Shoe Goo.

Obviously, no guarantee, but it might be worth a shot, if you don't get any better suggestions.

u/DannyCrane9476 · 3 pointsr/ValveIndex

A warning with super glue. When the glue dries, it will be solid as a rock. You can find flexible kinds, but even those types of super glue will be quite stiff

If you want it to remain flexible, you can use a product called Shoe Goo. It is strong and remains flexible, and can be found in quite a few local stores, like hobby shops and hardware stores. Another option could possibly be a form of fabric glue, though I have no experience with them so I can't recommend anything.

For a less permanent option, I would try some strong double sided tape, maybe something like this from 3M. It will remain flexible, and you could always remove it, but it may not hold for as long as the other options.

u/hemifieldsofgreen · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You could probably get a cobbler to stitch it down again no problem, or you could use some Shoe Goo.

u/Zaphod2112 · 2 pointsr/NewSkaters

Just to add another option: Order some Shoe Goo off amazon, pull some old and busted shoes out of your closet and make them into skate shoes! I found an old pair of pumas and two pairs of destroyed Chuck Taylor's that are working great for me

You can use this: Shoe Goo, Clear

u/CLICK_CLACK_CLICK · 1 pointr/NewSkaters

You have a few options. Just know that if you're going hard and practicing everyday, your shoes probably won't last longer than a month. If you get high end($80-90) skate shoes, they still won't last longer than a couple of months. So my suggestion is that you get some Shoe-goo. This can make your shoes last potentially forever. Just apply it to the areas of your shoes that get damaged. And you can always put on more goo as soon as you wear out the goo protection. I currently wear Etnies Marana XT's, but I'd also recommend Van's Ultrarange. It's a high premium for shoes you're going to shred but it is totally worth it, especially if you shoe goo them.

u/uglybaldmofo · 1 pointr/BarefootRunning

Is it possible the problem is that some of the glue entered into the hole, so now it's not smooth?

u/KrusHy_ · 1 pointr/streetwear

Hey, [try this!] (
It's called shoe goo, I use it all the time for my skate shoes, makes them last hella long, cause if it ever wears off from scraping grip tape or even the ground, you can always re-apply it! Also, another good alternative to this you could try is using a hot glue gun. Just apply the hot glue to the place that's scraping, let it dry for 5 mins and you're ready to rock n roll! Hope this helps m8 :)

Shoe Goo:

You can use that if you wanted to glue down other grip.
Its also something that you can peal off with a lot of force.

I use Shoe Goo for many things one of which is to glue back
my surfco tail guards when I re-grip. Since I cant really cut around them.

This shit holds solid, and when needing to remove the tail guard
it just peals off with mild force.

I would like to think adding a thin layer of shoe goo to any grip
would allow you to stick it to the stock grip and then peal it off
if you ever wanted to swap it.

Hi everyone - I have a pair of 5-year-old Doc Martens where the sole (welt?) split in the foot arch area. I don't have a photo of my boots, but another reddit user has experienced the same thing:

One of the commenters suggested "Shoe Glue." Is this recommended to repair them this way? There is no local cobbler that I'm aware of. Even if there was, isn't it more economical to just... buy another pair at this point?

u/Taanz · 1 pointr/Multicopter

I cut fine strips of gorilla tape ( Black Gorilla Tape 1.88 In. x 35 Yd., One Roll ) and placed around the inside. Then covered the tape with shoe goo ( Sof Sole Shoe Goo, Clear )

The thing is a tank now. I do it to all my plastic bodies. My 4x4 slash, nano cpx, nano and FPV nano etc.

u/AimForTheAce · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

Use a little bit of shoe goo.

u/jfichte · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

I used shoe goo to fix the exact same problem on my quoddy camp sole penny loafers, and so far it has help up nicely
