Question about Clothing Accessories

1 Answer

The soles on 4 of my camper shoes have split

1 pair are a"he loves me he loves me not sandals", 2nd pair are a wedge Mary Jane shoe, 3rd pair are a twins black sandal (rubber black soles) 4th pair are red boots with pointy toe and a round heel again rubber soles but brown in color all the soles have split and as the soles are quiet thick I am guessing it would be very difficult to repair them in a shoe repair shop.

Do you have a a pair of shoes that you bought not too long ago and the sole is coming apart? If you rather not risk buying another pair of the same shoes only to have them come apart, then this is the article for you.

Difficulty: Easy
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • superglue
  • shoes to fix

1. 1

Get a tube of super glue--any brand name should do. Just the regular type should do, no need for any extra strength formulas or special types. Make sure the tube has been properly opened at this time--the seal on the tube has had a hole punched in it, in other words.


Get the shoe(s) that need its/their sole(s) fixed. Where the sole is coming apart on the shoe, squirt in a good amount of super glue, but not too much that it will gush out. (If it does, try to wipe off the excess).


Hold the sole and shoe together for the recommended drying time or until they seal. Try not to get any glue on your fingers at this time, as it can stick flesh to other objects.

The sole should be fixed at this time. Sometimes it has to be done over if the drying time hasn't been followed or the glue might have some problem with it. Repeat this procedure for other shoes to be fixed

apply the same proedure for your broken part insted of repacing it

These sandals are a little different from just rubber sandals but the remedies may still work. First of all you can buy Ecco products like the foam cleaner or the waterproofer which might help get rid of the smell and stop it from coming back. Click here for a website that has those products. Or you may want to try just some home remedies which I have recommended people with rubber shoes try. A quick fix can be to wash the sandals by hand once in a while to get them from smelling. Use soap or alcohol to scrub them off and put outside to dry, but since your shoes are not rubber alcohol might effect them differently. This may get rid of what collects on the sandals and gets rid of the smell. Then let them air dry, putting them in the sun can be most effective. These solutions should help if not try the old trick of putting a bag freshener in you bag when you put them away.

I have found that a simple phone call can do wonders! Companies such as Hush Puppies has built a reputation which I am sure they want to uphold, so customer service and satisfaction is important to them. Their phone number is 1-866-699-7365 (M-F, 9:00 - 7:00). Here is a link to their site as well:

I highly suggest a phone call rather than an email. Simply explain what happened (and it wouldn't hurt to say something like "I am a big fan of Hush Puppies and have never had this problem before.") and offer a solution (i.e., you will pay to ship the shoes back if they will send you a replacement pair or fix yours). Companies are more receptive if you already have a solution in mind rather than just calling to complain and vent. And no matter how rude the person on the other end of the phone is, maintain your composure and be abrupt but polite. If the person is not willing to help you (even if they say they are sorry but there is just nothing they can do), ask to speak to the manager/supervisor. ALWAYS get the name (first and last) of the person you are speaking with and make a note of it. If the manager/supervisor does not assist you to your satisfaction then keep moving up the chain.

If after all your efforts they still say "no," then repeat their names and let them know that you are going to report them to the Better Business Bureau (or whatever version you have in your country). Don't be surprised if they change their tune!

Good luck and "walk on!"

Happy shopping!

How do I re heel a pair of Fly London Tong Sandals

Shoe-Goo will bond and create a sole but it may be harder than expected and not the 'rubbery' feel you want. But it will work and is likely your best bet. Perhaps cut rubber sole from another sandal or shoe and use shoe go in between let set over night and then cut away excess with a razor and re goo around edges.

Top looks great! Soles are crumbling. Is it possible to get them resolved and f so where and how much?

If you take them to a shoe repairer they can install a complete new sole. Not cheap though. I had a nice pair of dress shoes and they completely removed the sole and added a new one. It cost me $48 CDN. My repairer was in a local mall.

How do I get in touch with Onex shoes customer service? I have a pair of sandals and both soles craced. They were $90 sandals, that should not happen.

There have been a lot of questions about getting a hold of this company over the years. I haven't been able to find an address for them any time I tried. Regrettably, you are not alone with issues others have expressed in here. Perhaps a cobbler can help you with these.

I have a sandal that has a torn and worn inside sole. where can I have it fixed?

I would say that any shoe repair shop could take care of a repair like this. Take both along because it will look better when the repairs are made to both shoes.

I purchased a hush puppies pair of sandals about a week ago, now the soft cushion feeling has completely gone...what should i do?

Try gel inserts on them. You can get small ones, like the ones for heels. You can look HERE to get your own custom soles, which are extremely comfortable and can be put right on the shoe. Not only will it make your shoes comfortable like before, but putting them on your shoes can help your feet in so many more ways. Or you can just buy another pair of the shoes or Dr. Sholls shoes. I hope this helped.

I have a pair Dr Scholl sandals with the cork sole and suede straps. Can you please tell me is there anyway of cleaning them? Thank you Sharron

You didn't say what needs to be cleaned. If it is the straps, any shoe repair shop or any good shoe store should have suede cleaner.
It won't be cork under the bottom and if that is dirty, then an old soft toothbrush with dish detergent would take care of most dirt that you would get on them. You can seal them with something like Klebfast cork sealer to keep the dirt from coming back in at the sole.
