Selleys Shoe Glue Review

It seems that the old Rugby Contact Cement no longer works as it used to.

Yes in 2019, it’s only enough to have your shoe fixed for a day or two!

So while walking around the nearest mall, I saw Selleys Shoe Glue! A 15ml tube costs S$5.90

So for my first test… A cracked rubber sole.

As you can see, I used a generous amount of glue on this one.

Shoe was glued between the crack and excess glue can be seen oozing out of the sole.

Will leave it for 2 days to dry before starting to use the shoe again.

Second test… my wife’s Canvas Shoes (same issue with my Chucks)

Since this one will affect the looks of the shoe, I have to be careful with the amount I’m using.

For my leather shoes (cracked sole), adhesive was applied around 1300H on a Friday and I started wearing the shoe Monday at 0900H. That’s more than 2 days for the adhesive to dry.

After a week use (I only use the shoe during office hours, I use Chuck Taylors 2 for my commute), so far so good.

Wife’s (white) shoe, more than a week to dry.

Chucks, more than 1 day.

Cracked sole – it lasted for a week. I’ll try to re-apply the adhesive again later and put a more generous amount.

Canvass shoe – this one is still ok, its not used everyday hence I’m happy that it’s holding up well.
