    My boots need sone help. The binding between sole and upper where the toes flex is coming appart.

    Ive been looking at shoe glue ( shoe goop, gorila, superglue?) but i cant tell if it will dry rigid and fall apart in few days, since its in the part the boot flexes most.

    Any recomendations?

    I've used this stuff in the past. I'm pretty sure it's what used to be called Freesole.

    I've used a McNett Freesole-like product in the past, can't remember exactly what it was being called back then. Results were good.

    I've used Shoe Goo a few times over the last 10 years, all repairs have lasted well. I get mine from a local skateboarders store, they use it a lot. Available in black or clear, I find the black looks better when dry. Around £7 for a tube which will last a long time.

    +1 for Shoe Goo. Uppers on trail runners get really trashed on rough trails. I use so much before they're ready to discard that the uppers end up nearly waterproof :o o:
