I'm looking for a glue. It's for my boots. I dont know if I'm just unlucky, but I'm going through rather a lot of them. Typically up to 6 pairs a year, which is odd as I dont walk very far in them, and spend most of the time driving. The usual failure point is where the leather uppers meet the synthetic soles, they just part company. it's a failure of whatever means is used to atach the two rather than the materials themselves.
There is no pattern to which ones go, seems evenly split (no pun intended) between left and right.
I'm fed up with throwing away otherwise ok safety footwear. I've considered a hot glue gun, but I dont think the result would be flexible enough.
At the rate you go through them surely there is a case for a free replacement from the shop on the grounds that the boots are not of satisfactory quality? I seem to remember in USA a company will replace (hiking) boots FOC if they wear out.
I purchased a 1.5m x 38mm roll of SUPER SEALING TAPE [made by 3M from LIDL last week cost £3.99] ...'cos i thought it might help fix a slight crack in the sole of my shoe. It's white coloured but can be painted.
It says on package:
can be painted - very high initial adhesion - excellent UV-resistance - high comformability - temperature resistance of +90 c / -40 c - water resistant - for indoors and outdoors.
