Shoe Goo on my Slippery Sandals

I have these pair of sandals which I got cheap from clearance. It was comfortable but when walking in some shopping centre, these can be quite slippery...it might be the tiles...so I was thinking of trying shoe goo on it.....

I spread a thin layer on 2 critical part of the outsole:

And I cut a piece of the curtain fabric and press over it until it sip through the fabric:

I spread another layer of shoe goo on the fabric:

I left it to cure


So the next day I cut away the excess fabric and spread another layer to cover the edges as well

Leave it for at least 72hrs and let see if this will work......

Vibram FiveFingers Repair using Shoe Goo - Enhancement

 After patching up as described in my last post and leave it over night, I continued to apply another layer before I leave it to cure for 72hrs and this is how it looked like....still not a pretty patch work:
 
Finally, I brought this old Vibram Fivefingers Classic that has slept in my shoe cabinet for the past one year for a spin again...still looking good:

I must say it feels as good as before and does not feel more worn out compared to my 2nd black pair which has clocked 200km less. However, I do feel the patch work can be thicker...this is how it looks like after post-run wash...one mesh of ugly sight:

I googled and found this interesting way of enhancing the shoe goo repair.So I decided to give it a try, I spread one thin layer of Shoe Goo(Now is easier since there is no hole on it now). I found this unless curtain fabric which is perfect for this so I cut a small piece and put over it and press to let the shoe goo to go thru it then I spread one more layer of shoe goo over the fabric and left it to cure:

After 1 day, I cut away the excess fabric:

And I spread one more layer of Shoe Goo over it and especially the side to cover the fabric edges. Now it look more pretty compared to the previous patch (The first photo of this post)

Now is to wait at least 72 hrs again for it to cure before I bring it for a spin.....
