    hey there,

    one of my carnac shoes is separating between the sole and the top section. the shoes have a couple of 1000 miles on them.
    soles look fine. tops look fine.

    can the shoe be re-glued (how), or
    is it time for new booties?

    anyone have good luck fixing a shoe like this?

    cu,

    Have known a few guys who repaired shoes like that, usually using heavy duty epoxy. I have done the same to my daughter's soccer cleats many times. Give it a shot, if not, pony up the dough for some new kicks.

    hey,

    i put some epoxy between the sole and the upper, put a couple of clamps on, waited overnight,....

    all is well,
    the shoe has held together since then.

    thanks for the suggestion.

    This happened after only a couple thousand miles? If so, remind me not to dump bucks into Carnacs...
