I've got a pair of Keene boots that I've had for less than a year. They are in good shape, except for the right one, which the sole has come loose at the heal. These are a hiking boot, the soles are glued on. Has anyone had success regluing soles on boots? And what did you use?

One coat on both surfaces...let it dry
Apply another coat on both surfaces...let it dry
Position and put together.

That's usually what I do when making a counter-top.

shoe goo works, but if you're on a job site you probably have access to all sorts of "free" adhesives. gorilla glue, subfloor glue...knock yourself out.

I've tried other adhesives, nothing seems to work as well as contact cement for that application, it's strong yet flexible.
