sole seperating


I got my mythos resoled in May, and have been quite satisfied with their new life. Recently I noticed that the front half of the sole is seperating from the rear half, especially when I flex my foot. What is the best way to fix this? Freesole? Some other kind of glue?

Thaks for your help MP

Ask your resoler or contact Locker on MP. He has a resole business and seems pretty helpful. FrankPS

Any resoloers or shoe glue experts out there? Paul Zander

His sole is unhinged, don't be so hard on him.

Clean the area with alcohol. Apply a light coating of Barge cement to both sides of the delaminated area. Do not stick the two side together yet. Rather, leave the wound open for a couple of hours to let the glue dry. Then heat up the sole and glue with a hair dryer on high heat low fan for 45 seconds or so... then stick the two side together with all the force your thumbs can muster and hold while you watch a sitcom for a half hour or longer if you can. If you have some kind of clamp you could use that and leave it overnight. Waiting a couple of days to use the shoes may help as well.

That's what I would do and it might work if the shoe side and resole side cuts were decent enough to begin with.

Good point. Do you think it needs a mental health evaluation?
