Thanks

David - I've tried it; decided it was not that good.

Lately, I have been using a product called "Liquid Tape".
It is liquid rubber and is sold in the electrical department of hardware stores to insulate open electrical connections.

I originally bought it to coat the ends of my ropes; both to seal the ends and to quickly identify/find the ends. It comes in the following colors - red, black, green, and white.

What about it wasn't good?

Is it grippy and durable enough for high-use spots like heels or tops of crack shoes?

Oops - my error. I mistakenly thought you were asking about the "5-10 Stealth Paint"

In reply to the other question - the Liquid Tape works great for filling in wear spots in the rand/sole/heal area.

I doubt it is as sticky as stealth rubber, but it can help extend the life of your shoes.

Marty, would it work to cover, say, 1cm long worn-to-the-leather type hole in the rand?
Thanks

David - that is what I use it for.
It isn't as sticky as stealth rubber, but I am
sure it is stickier than the leather.

A (poorly focused) photo attached. Shoe has
seen at least a dozen or so pitches after
liquid tape application.

At $5/bottle, how can you go wrong. Liquid
tape goes on with an included brush and dries
in 5-10 minutes.
