Question about Spira Wave Walker DX3 Shoes for Men

Why is the sole sticky and crumbling?

The last two pairs I bought, one shoe has a sole that is like gum and after one wearing begins to crumble leaving holes in the sole. Thought I might have stepped in something while on vacation (shoes were brand new), ordered a new pair and today is the first day I've worn them and one shoe is doing exactly the same thing???

This sounds like these shoes have been kept in humid areas that is causing the PU to deteriorate.

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.

Adidas SpringBlade running shoe tread splitting

there is not much hope for a solution to this problem as it is common to all shoes sold
Why adidas will not help is that they and all shoe manufacturers are aware that all shoes have a shelf life and if the shoe is not used in a short period of time after manufacturer the material used starts to break down and become unstable
it is the movement of the sole that sets the material and produces a long wear period but shoes ( and boots ) bought and stored will fail quickly with sole problems ( cracking, falling off , bits falling out etc )
Best advice is wear all your shoes on a regular basis for the first few months before leaving them in the cupboard and to get a retailer that will offer a replacement pair if the soles fail in a short period of time as a good will gesture for the customer
of course you can always resort to legal action as there is an expectation by the purchaser that the goods will last for a reasonable period of time regardless of expressed warranty period or not

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.

I am guessing that it is not pure rubber but something of a mixture of things. It is not likely that these can be fixed when they do that. If a sole has polyethylene in it and is exposed to high humidity, it will break down. The same thing with polyurethane in organic solvents like gasoline.

I have several pair of shoes I had to pitch as a result and I was not happy. Sorry for the bad news.

Why should I choose to wear skateboarding shoes over normal sneakers when skateboarding?

Skateboarding shoes are made to withstand the punishment that a skateboarder gives them. Also the grip tape on a skateboard can shred normal sneakers; specific shoes for skateboarders have a thick gum sole and can last longer.
