The work load here on Wetknee
farm has proven to be rough on work boots.
I thought an expensive pair
of Timberlands would last
longer. Turns out they started to fail within the same time frame as
cheaper boots which prompted me to keep going with Ozark Trail, which usually sells
for 30 dollars but can sometimes be found for 20.
The weak point is always
where my toes bend. This time I tried to extend the life of the above
pair with a product called Shoe Goo.
I made sure they were nice and dry and applied a liberal amount within
the gaps and gave it the full 48 hours of set up time.
My feet got wet the first day
just by stepping in puddles while chopping wood.
I think this product would
work well if you needed to re-attach the sole to the shoe as pictured
on the package. It might even form a decent protective coating to seal
up some shoes, but I don't think it's up to the task of bringing back
footwear that is so far gone they get your socks wet everytime you
cross the creek.
