Repairing Converse Soles?


Hawks

Recommended Posts

I have an awesome pair of purple high top Chucks that have been through a lot, though I've only had them for about 4 months. The rubber sidewall on one of the shoes is cracking where it bends in the toe. I can't think of a way to fix them though. Do they make some sort of flexible rubber repair kit? I've been told rubber cement is water-soluble, so I don't think it would work.

It's gotten bigger since this pic was taken.

I can't see the crack, but Crazy Glue holds anything together... Mighty Putty, alternatively.

Do you skate, stevepole? If you do, then it's another story.

You must be riding them out pretty hard. My converses last me about 7 months, and I thrash them. Don't bother taking them to a repair shop, not worth it. Just keep wearing them though, because converses have to have that old school, grunged up style.

Shoe Goo is the best idea. I've repaired my flat sole Macbeths with it multiple times and they're pretty similar to the way Converse are made.
