Talk about being creative! Especially in this economy, if you can be resourceful then do it. How cold does the weather get up there in Canada?

Best glue to use is called "Shoe Glue", you can find it on Amazon if not carried in a local hardware store in the adhesive section. The glue is used primarily when the sole separates from the shoe body, it is very strong and lasts a long time.


Shoe Goo?

Where I live, the average temperature during winter is -12C. Though when the sun goes down, the average becomes -17C. Add the wind from riding, and your toes freeze in minutes.

Shoe Goo seems like a popular product, many local stores actually stock it. I'll get a tube of it if the hot melt glue ever breaks. So far it's holding up! I think it helps that I use an industrial hot melt glue gun that heats the glue to 400F.

If you like Garbage Land, I recommend watching the documentary Bag It about plastic bags and plastics.


I've puncture repair kitted my girlfriend's wellington boots. They're holding up quite well!

As others have stated, skateboarders have been using Shoe Goo / Shoe Goo II for 20 years with success.


Awesome Goo.
Similar to Shoe Goo but uses hot water or a heat gun to set the glue.


You can also use liquid or spray - work very well for small holes. http://www.open-info.eu/spray-do-latania-detek-roweru-patch-spray/
