What Is the BEST Glue for Sole Shoe Repair???

I’m sure you had your favorite shoes fall apart and you were wishing you could somehow glue them back together or fix them. There’s a lot of glue out there but you can try, but which one works the best. For years I’ve been trying different types of Glue and finally found one that will actually work. It is definitely not a epoxy, Or even shoe goo. 3M makes a glue for gaskets that works amazing. In the Instructable I show how to make this repair. Hope you find a Instructable useful

    Does this work on tennis shoes

    Is that the super sticky, tar-like substance I used on my car, ONCE, and then swore I'd pay for the real gasket?? If this works for shoes, then I want to retract my original condemnation of the stuff. Kudos to you for finding a use for it.

    A horrible replacement for an actual gasket makes a great glue!
