When both our kid’s had shoes that were separating from the soles (but otherwise in good condition) and one of them were expensive track spikes, The Writer remembered a product called “Shoe Goo” that he had used once to repair some shoes.
Sure enough, Target sold it right in the shoe section. We weren’t sure if it would work, but for $3.99 it was worth a try.
So he applied some of the goo and used a clamp to hold the sole and upper parts together.
You can see a little of the goo, but it is clear, so it’s not really noticeable unless you’re holding a camera 3 inches from it. 🙂
These spikes are ready to go again for the season coming up.
The heel on our son’s shoes completely detached after only about a month of wear, which was really frustrating.
After a bit of Shoe Goo and a clamp, he’s good to go.
Again, this is not noticeable repaired unless you examine it closely.
So, $3.99 in Shoe Goo just saved us more than $60.00- whoo-hoo!
Definitely a frugal find. Have you ever used this stuff?
