How to repair rubber/leather sneakers?
In short, after washing and leaving them in the sun to dry, the rubber toe-cap has come unstuck in several places and the Vibrams as well. (see pics)
Several shoe repair shops gave me quotes too high for my budget, but provided me with a good idea of how to proceed. They all said that the toe-cap needs to be reglued AND sewn down, otherwise it will just come unstuck again. Of course the sole also needs to be reglued.
What I want to know is: A) What type of glue and technique can should I use to reglue the toe-cap and sole? and B) What type of needle, thread and stitch should I use to sew the toe-cap?
Thank you! Any help is much appreciated!
