I've had success with polyurethane (gorilla) glue. I've found it usually holds until some other part of shoe fails (inner sole). Follow the instructions, use a damp rag to get the surfaces wet then lightly clamp or compress the shoe with some type of weight to hold surfaces together.

The urethane glues expand and fill in voids. Use sparingly but cover the surfaces. Best not to mess with glue that may ooze out. Wait until it sets then scrap off excess. Urethane glues will stick to your skin and difficult to remove so avoid contact.

I have a pair of Enzo Angiolini cobalt blue pumps.The heel on one shoe is very loose and ready to break. I cannot find anyplace locally to repair it. Is there someplace I can send it to be repaired?

a home fix:
1- contact cement
2- C clap
3- 2 small pieces of wood one of which should fit inside at the heel

spread the cement on both surfaces let set for about 5-10 minutes till cement is tacky, press together, put a piece of wood on the bottom of the heel and one inside, hold in place with the C clap, leave over night, should out last the shoe, hope this helps

Acer warranty repair

if it is Acer, I wouldn't think that it is rubber. Perhaps it is TPR or PU. In either case, they can be repaired at a good quality shoe repair shop.

Sole has worn off. Can it be repaired?

There are two possibilities, if the upper is in good condition and you really like the shoes. One is to find a shoe repair shop, the repairer will tell you if it is possible and what the cost will be.

The other option is to find a general store which sells stick on soles for shoes. With a little luck, you may find some which resemble the soles on your Nikes. If so, it is an easy enough cheap repair and should last for a while, but it will never be as good as the original. or a professional repair.

Seals around speakers are broekn and gone!

Hello kagato_morri,

While it's certainly possible to replace the surrounds, whether it's economical to do so is another question. For very high-end speakers, there are often "repair kits" available to replace spiders, cones, surrounds and for some, even the voice coils. But such parts are usually not available for your run-of-the-mill speakers.

If the speakers are otherwise in good condition, and you are willing to spend some time with them, you can use an adhesive foam to construct a new surround. A product called "shoe goo" makes a good permanent bond. It's a super strong rubber cement and will hold up under the stresses of the moving speaker cone.

Hope this helps.
