Hey Guys,
Today I'm gonna show you how to repair your used skate shoes with hot glue. It's really easy and takes about 5 minutes and it's much cheaper than buying shoe goo.


Step 1: Problem

So there is a hole in my skate shoe. Big problem. So get out your hot glue gun and lets get started.

Step 2: Repairing

Take one of your hands inside the shoe and put a finger on the hole to stop the glue from coming inside. If you do it correctly you shouldn't have to put your finger because no glue is going to come inside. But just in case, lets put it...
Start making a web from one point of tha hole to another. When that is done apply gule in generous amounts.
IMPORTANT! Use the metal tip to smooth out the glue so it wont come off easily.

Step 3: Go Skating

When the glue cools down, you're good to go skating!
