  1. I’ll hold my hands up then I’m saying 5050 won’t work. I’ve not used it for a long time now. Although it’s not going to be the easiest glue on a DIY job Curse those PayPal sellers, just like the eBay lot
  2. Jay, where are you based? We might be able to recommend someone near to you who can do them for you. Some guys on here also do postal work. Tom is annoyed, because recently the rise of these eBay sellers trying to cash in selling repair materials and things has contributed to many hardworking guys going out is business. You say you’re a mechanic, I wouldn’t try and fix my own car, I’d leave it to you. There’s a lot more to shoe repair than a bit of glue. You rightly said that in the factory they are heat bonded, don’t try this, the fumes are toxic and won’t work with a vibram sole. While some Vibram soles can go on Docs without an issue, not all of them can. Likewise with glue, it’s not just a case of painting it on and on top of that, one glue won’t bond all materials. For example 5050 won’t stick a Vibram sole to a Doc boot. You are honestly best just taking them to a different shoe repairer. You’ll end up spending a lot more time and money doing it yourself and you may not have success
  3. They haven’t. I should really look at that

    “Symptoms may include headache, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and confusion” I definitely noticed a difference. Whether it’s actual or placebo, but I certainly drink a lot less coffee now

    Description please

    And I thought I was bad with shades of polish
  8. Thanks Robin, I’ll send you a PM now
  9. Do you mean the navy blue dainite style ones? Or there is a navy vibram gumlite? I can fit either of those for you. They're the only ones I can think of that look smart. The others are chunkier. I do remember seeing a bright blue one a couple of years ago but I think that was from the Vibram Sole Factor program rather than general release
  10. Stick on soles and heels or units? Royal blue or navy?

    Paper bags

    Paper bags for shoes, plastic bags for long boots. Both from Birch
  12. If they’re all smooth leather you just need a desalter to get rid of the white stain and some good quality leather creams to restore the colour. It’s hard to tell from the pictures though
  13. Are they all smooth leather, or are some nubuck?
  14. Personally I think that’s great news and I’m looking forward to see where it leads
