Theses shoes are still good (picture have been removed), but the small missing part of the heel makes them painful to wear. I'm looking for the most efficient way to extend my shoes life (robust, cheapest, aesthetics and ecological). I'm looking for feed backs about what you tried: what work, and what doesn't.
The sole could be theoretically fixed in several ways:
● by adding the missing matter on the sole with a form-work That would be the easiest solution : filling the missing part with some rubber like matter that would solidify. And maybe a bunch of small screws that would be cover by the matter and increase the adhesion between the filling and the remaining part of the sole. That would be super, but since I haven't seen anything about it on the web, it's probably because it doesn't work... Did you try it?
● by cutting few centimeter of the heel and gluing a new heel sole: I'm tempted to use a piece of tire, that seems to work and that looks great. Did you try, which kind of glue did you use, which did last, which didn't? I know that theoretically many glue should fit but I also know by experience that resoling did failed most of the time (I spent my childhood running after my soles...). I'm tempted to use neoprene glue (contact adhesive) for the first adhesion to be completed by superglue for the tricky parts. What do you think?
ps: I would prefer practical feedback rather than theoretical advises (pictures of your experiments are warmly welcome!)
ps2: such worn out is cause by an "overpronation".
EDIT: shoe goo & heel are extremely expensive where I'm living. So we need to be creative. Any feedback about what did work for you, or not, (kind of glue or heel) would be extremely appreciated (don't hesitate to post pictures).
