    Broken Shoe

    My shoes are old but still (were) in good shape except the front sole as begun to pull away. Paid about 250 for these bad boys several years ago. I hate to toss them. Has any one had any luck with gluing the soles back on or is just time to replace?

    Use FreeSole. Best stuff to adhere to cycling shoe soles.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Take them to a cobbler. They'll fix them up for cheap.

    My cobbler would not guaranty his repair would hold and recommended the FreeSole.

    Bonding uppers to cycling soles is difficult.
