Way out 3M 5200 useage question

Is 5200 strong enough and flexible enough to fix a pair of tennis shoes? My beater work tennis shoes are starting to fall apart; the leather upper is splitting from the rubber lower sole. I was thinking of glueing on a leather patch and was wondering if 5200 would work. Can't let my toes stick out to snag a friendly cleat!
And yes, this is a serious question.

For the price of a tube of 5200, you could almost buy a pair of tennis shoes at Walmart. That was a serious answer.

You are kidding, right?

Once that stuff dries, it takes an act of God to get it apart (though I have heard you can connect it to Giu's Boom and that will do it too). Yes, it would work. No, I think there are better uses for your 5200... kinda like just pull the soles off and 5200 them to the bottom of your feet. Then they will not come apart, ever.

There's a product called Shoe Goo that works well for fixing shoes. Quite a bit cheaper than 5200.

Speaking of 5200 and WalMart - You can get 5200 at WalMart for about 1/2 the price of the marine stores. 4200 also........

hellosailor has a spectacular aura about hellosailor has a spectacular aura about
Shoe Goo? Or "Goop", which comes in about six varieties, including one just for shoes, although even the general purpose one ("Household") does a nice job holding them together. If you just need to reattach the leather and rubber, the old fashioned yellow contact cement works nicely, way cheaper too. All available in the hardware stores.

Use Shoe Goo.. Don't use 5200 for the shoes... since the tube will start curing once opened.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

5200 is strong enough to hold 12" x12" x 1" concrete pavers to a wood wall. I know, as my son needed a "wall" to practice lacrosse with. Wood did not rebound enough so we built a wall with two sheets of 3/4" plywood screwed together and "tiled" it with the pavers. Super job, two years old with no loose tiles and it works for his lacrosse practice.

I would think that it would hold some tennis shoes together, now getting them apart later....

Thumbs up Educational

G'day Guys.

One thing I really enjoy on this site(sailnet) is the education I get EVERY time I tune in.

This would have to be one of the best yet.

I am a painter and the turpentine I use makes my shoes fall apart.
Being part Scottish and part Irish, (I have lots of PARTS in my life. The women in my family were all slow runners) I borrow silicon from the plumbers on the job and glue them back with that.

So far it is working.

Keep these ideas coming.

Jim
