    Best Glue or repair for Cross Country Boots

    The glue holding the soul on the material and shoe base came loose. I do not go enough to justify new boots (and probably then also new bindings) so looking at just gluing and clamping them and let dry as first step to see if they will hold.

    Regular Epoxy (not going to spend money on Marine Epoxy unless I can get it pretty cheap)
    JB Weld
    I found some outdoor adhesive- no name stuff
    Gorilla Glue (which one)
    LocTite Vinyl-Fabric-and-Plastic-Clear-Fabric Repair
    AquaSeal

    Combinations of above?

    The sole has a bit of the center that has a sort of hard cardboard and then the rest is the vinyl and cloth of the upper shoe you see.

    I have had a tube of this for at least 6 years that has fixed several soles and some other stuff. Just looked and it is in its spot waiting for the next repair.

    Best Glue or repair for Cross Country Boots

    I had the same thing happen to the toe of one of my cross country boots about four or five seasons ago, clamped the crap out of it with shoe goo and forgot about it since.

    Shoo Goo is your choice. It will remain relatively flexible which is what you will need

    Another +1 for shoo goo. I've repaired many hiking boots with that stuff and it always does better than I expect. Dont use gorilla glue as it expands

    Just a follow up. Both shoes were shoe goo'd with a pretty liberal amount all up and down the area I could reach. Once I got it down into the sole of the boot, I did 2 C-Clamps one at the ball of the foot area where they bend and flex and a second back at the pad on the heel and left them overnight. In the morning the first one seemed pretty secured. So same process to the 2nd one the next evening.

    Snow is finally back and may go head out and see how it holds in the cold but hoping for success...
