On my winter mtb boots the sole has come away from the upper, I'm told by a USian to use Shoo Goo
which is winter proof, but I've not been able to locate a UK stockist.

A local shoe repairer was not able to help, apart from saying not to use epoxy glue (evostick) as it
cracks on a cold day.

Can anyone recommend an adhesive? Mike

Woolworths sell tubes of Toluene as additional extras to their In-step stick on plastic sole kits
intended to repair or extend the lifespan of leather soled shoes. You could try a small section of
your boots first but it's not the kind glue to melt stuff. It gives lab rats cancer though so do
follow the instructions. My experience with adhesives is that the bigger the warning the better they
are and lots of people want to ban Toluene.

=============
'Shoe goo' used to be sold in shops selling running shoes / trainers.( e.g. Olympus, Foot Locker,
etc) As far as I can remember it isn't primarily an adhesive. It's used to build up worn sections
such as the front toe section which gets a lot of wear on running shoes. For a more conventional
adhesive it would be worth trying BLACK Bostik which is a good general purpose adhesive.
