Common Shoe Problems & How to Fix Them

Your shoes are an essential part of your daily wardrobe, carrying you through various activities, weather conditions, and terrains. Over time, even the highest quality footwear can develop problems. Instead of discarding your beloved shoes, why not repair them? At NJOY, we understand the importance of keeping your favorite pairs in top shape. That’s why we offer Shoe-Fix Glue and Boot-Fix Glue, designed to tackle common shoe issues effectively. Here are some typical shoe problems and how you can fix them yourself.

  1. Sole Separation

Problem: One of the most common shoe issues is the separation of the sole from the shoe, which can lead to discomfort and further damage if left unattended.

Solution: Using our Shoe-Fix Glue, you can easily reattach the sole. First, clean both surfaces to remove dirt and old adhesive. Apply a thin, even layer of Shoe-Fix Glue to both the sole and the shoe. Press the parts together firmly and hold 10-45 seconds. 

  1. Loose Heels

Problem: Loose or wobbly heels not only look unappealing but can also pose a safety risk.

Solution: Our Boot-Fix Glue is perfect for repairing loose heels, especially on heavier footwear like boots. Remove any loose debris and old glue from the heel and shoe. Apply Boot-Fix Glue generously to the heel base and the shoe, pressing the heel firmly into place. Hold the heel securely while the glue sets.

  1. Detached Shoe Lining

Problem: The inner lining of your shoes can sometimes come loose, causing discomfort and potentially damaging your socks.

Solution: To fix this, carefully pull back the loose lining and clean the area with a damp cloth. Apply a thin layer of Shoe-Fix Glue to both the shoe and the lining. Press the lining back into place and hold it firmly for 10-45 seconds. 

  1. Cracked Sole

Problem: Cracked soles can let in water and reduce the shoe’s comfort and durability.

Solution: Clean the crack thoroughly to remove any dirt. Apply Boot-Fix Glue into the crack, ensuring it penetrates deeply. Press the crack together and hold it for 10-45 seconds. 

  1. Loose Straps and Buckles

Problem: Straps and buckles can come loose over time, especially on sandals and dress shoes.

Solution: For loose straps, clean both the strap and the attachment point. Apply Shoe-Fix Glue to the strap and press it back into place. For buckles, ensure the buckle is correctly positioned before applying glue. Hold the strap or buckle in place for 10-45 seconds.
