Posted on 10/31/2010 9:29:48 PM PDT by Frantzie
I have Nike golf shoes which are falling apart. The soles and uppers are fine. Nike junk.
First the crappy Nike uppers started pulling away from the rubber soles. They have a rubber heel and clear foam thing now falling apart.
Nike's golf equipment is largely junk and most of their money is spent on you know who (Cheetah) for his hoes.
This is getting very embarassing for me around fellow country club Republicans. It is very hard to keep up the appearances at the club when your shoes are falling apart. The Islamic is destroying the economy.
I also have some loafers that could need repair. I am not light in those loafers like Charline Crisp.
Hopefully Willard...er...I mean Mitt will save us. It is sad that Nelson Rockefeller is not still around. He would know what to do.
I believe that shoo goo is basically silicone caulk in an impossible to use tube...
Don’t know, but Nike may need to change their slogan to ...
Just glue it!
Hubby likes the goo, I like E5000.
Nike stuff is junk. For running shoes New Balance is much better.
These Nike golf shoes were on sale. Next time it is Foot Joy or Adidas.
Golf in Iceland with country club Republicans?
Why should you all of a sudden care about being embarrassed?
You do that to yourself with regularity without compunction on FR.
Gorilla glue! Read the directions... glue on one side and water on the other. I use to glue work boots! $3 a bottle at Home Depot.
I’ve had good luck with shoo goo. Spit on your finger and it keeps the silicone from sticking to your finger so that you can shape it if necessary.
Have you considered a hot glue gun?
I have had good luck gluing leather with ordinary epoxy.
There are products made as caulks and products made as adhesives, you need an adhesive. An all purpose product might not stick very well.
Start buying New Balamce...made in the USA. Nike is likely made in China... very crappy quality!
Don’t you know glue is owned by the Saudis and is advertised on Fox News? Stop using glue!
I was just wondering if any of the adhesives in the caulk sized tubes work because they are cheaper. Something like Liquid Nails.
The Shoe Goo stuff has a short shelf life. You pretty much need to get all your shoes together and fix them at once.
Nike stuff is horrible. Designed to self destruct. You fix one thing and the other thing breaks. Nike must use the cheapest adhesive in their Asian sweatshops.
Probably chinese glue. Or vietnamese. Or from indonesia. Probably works best if applied by imprisoned orphan political dissident children.
I keep hearing in the media about this stuff Republicans always use on absolutely everything, called “Race Paste” but damned if I can find it anywhere.
It is. Nike sucks. They must use the cheapest adhesives in poorly ventilated sweatshops so Kobe, Tiger et al can sell $100+ shoes to inner city children. I realize those kids are not wearing golf shoes in Detroit. ;-)
Nike is not a nice company and they are liberals.
I’ve been meaning to pass this along. I bought some silicone gutter sealant and used a tiny amount to put an end cap on a gutter. It turns out to be an exceptionally good glue for leather and remains flexible after it sets. It is probably pretty similar to ShoeGoo in chemical formulation.
I was going to suggest the same thing, but when I use gorilla glue, I have to clamp the items as the glue rises a bit and then flattens out. At least thats what it did when I glued 2 pieces of wood together...
Thanks. If it works on work boots then it should work.
I do not play at a country club but a $10 municipal course after 3 pm.
