Is this shoe failed or still okay?

Postby DrSquirrel » Sun Oct 28, 2012 21:49 pm

I'm sure its still bolted at the front and back etc, and specially where the cleat is... but im not sure how it affects it overall.

I could just clean and fill it with glue? Nothing to lose if its failed...

I probably would try and bond it back together. Give it a good clean and stick some epoxy resin in there.

I would use Shoegoo which is a polyurethane-based adhesive - epoxy is too brittle. Alternatively, take it to a cobbler, they has strong, waterproof adhesives and will clamp the shoe in a last whilst it cures.
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
