We used to use polyurethene on the driped and let it dry for a couple of hours then use 2 coats of neoprene.

 

Also used to nail the join with large head tacks never had any come adrift.

Yep, same.

This forum is amazing, i joined today and was only thinking about the old dri-ped leather soles last week, unreal co-incidence.

I used to repair a lot of these in the 'hole in the road' in Sheffield in the 80s then in Doncaster in the 90s.

Haven't encountered the stuff in 20 years now thank goodness.
