    reinforce soles for flat pedal use

    I have some Giro Jackets that I have only worn a few times (still waffling between flats and SPD) and I can see a familiar pattern from my BMX days with the pedal pins tearing through the tread. my next shoes might be Terrex or 5.10s but for now, I want to make these last a few more months.

    anyone tried the 5.10 Stealth paint kit or just some heavy-duty cement that will add some grip and reinforce the treads where it's needed? I was thinking of Shoe Goo, but that stuff tends to dry out and crumble off (I have lots of experience with that stuff from skateboarding.)

    Low hiking boots work for me. Beefy, stiff sole, good grip, waterproof.

    Those soles look new, they have tons of miles left. Just ride, they will probably last a year

    The paint on stuff from 5.10 is for temporarily fixing the rands of climbing shoes, not really meant for the abuse of flat's crampons.
    you could possibly use a resole kit once the sole really gets shreaded:
    Five Ten | Aquastealth Resole Kit
    FIve Ten | C4 Dotty Resole Kit
