[User Picture]01:52 pm - So THAT'S why my feet failed...
...note to self. When replacing feet-soles and one person strips while another re-glues, make sure to tell the first one how much and where the original adhesive was if you were happy with how everything held up, or even if not.

Switching from an entirely clown-shoe-long Vans shoe covered in something milky-clear and then stuck down onto exercise mat tends to result in a much more durable link than a big dollop near the ball and another big dollop near the heel. Especially with the feet themselves are big floofy ones with big hunks of foam underneath that stick way out over the clown-shoe in the first place so they have gobs of leverage. *laughs*

Anyways... let's see if the silicon-based Liquid Nails type 207 sticks between the shoe sole and exercise mat, Vans have remarkable chemical-resistant soles on them. Low and medium-temp and even high-temp hot glue just rolls off them like water on a duck's back, hoping this does the trick. If it doesn't, well... at least I have a nice pair of Vans. *snickers*

At least that's sorted now, once I let the stuff cure for the day and test tonight. On a different note... finally saw Terminator Salvation in theatres (yay, $2 theatres!) and I was honestly fairly pleased. It wasn't (and nothing will likely ever be) T1 or T2 quality, but it was a good popcorn muncher.4 commentsLeave a comment
