I've found ShoeGoo (or similar sounding brands) can repair shoes, extending the life of favorite comfortable shoes:
1. I've reglued the uppers to the soles when they are separating.
2. Added thickness to the sole – over a hole, or confined the ShoeGoo with a 'dam' of heavy tape to square up a worn-down heel. Yeah, I can be a real cheap-skate!http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/im...ilies/grin.gif
The material sticks to most things, and remains slightly flexible when cured (24-72 hours). The repairs have lasted for months to years. It's an easy thing to try, it would probably stick to vinyl, and it might even work.http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/im.../whistling.gif
