So with the amount of stuff I do from day to day, I burn the toes out on shoes fast.

So here is an inexpensive cheap solution to fix shoe toe holes and prevent new ones!

Also works great with kids shoes, boots or anywhere else you eat threw footwear.

Step 1: Bag It.

Grab a bag a sack or what ever you heart desires.

Cut a hole for the toe or what ever part gets holes in your shoes.

Step 2: Tape

Tape like your life depends on it...

Not really... any painters tape will do... I go with blue cause frog tape is expensive and I'd rather save it for walls and windows.

If you want it to look good. I would tape around the toe to keep the flex seal in only the spots where I want it.

I personally don't mind a few drips or it covering the toe portion of the sole.

Step 3: Spray Away

Grab some flex seal and give it a good hit on the exposed area.

This will need several coats especially if it is on the soles of the shoes or boots or what ever your spraying...

Step 4: While You're Waiting

That is a good idea. My problem is I wear through the side of the shoes because I sit down cross-legged on the cement when working on so many projects and it grinds the outside of both shoes pretty quickly. I'll have to give this a try. Thanks!

I have that problem, too. I use "shoe-goo" shoe repair and it works pretty well. It usually lasts for several months before I have to do it again. It occurs to me that alternating layers of Flex Seal and good quality cloth gaffer's tape would make a very strong, flexible, watertight patch as well.
