Maybe 20 pitches on em and this is happening. Adidas quality control?

I realize it may be apples to oranges but, looks like my Guide Tennies that haven't seen many miles.

Before it gets worse, go to a dollar store or Home Depot and get one of those steel wire brushes about the size of a tooth brush and some Barge or equivalent glue. Brush both surfaces somewhat aggressively, until each is dull and obviously "Roughed up". Or use a dremel with a steel or brass wire brush, and carefully do the same.

Apply glue per instructions. Use a cheap small nylon paint brush (dollar store, bag of 20 for a buck type shit) to apply. Toss after (Not the shoes, the brush).

Looks like what happens to TC Pros.  Have you been climbing a lot of cracks?

I’ve had good luck with seam seal on my TCs.

I have, slab and knobs too but def a lot of crack in those 20 or so pitches.

Thanks Locker I'll give that trick a go.
