Most of the shoe manufacturers use several different types of glue for making their shoes, most of which are heat activated. If you just need some to make repairs, there is an all-purpose product called "Shoe Goo."  It runs about $5 for a one ounce tube, but it works pretty good.

Shoe goo works great for shoe repairs and for other things too.

Converse shoe glue.  Seriously.  It's a propriatary blend made up slightly differently for different products used.
