i tried most types of shoe repair glue and none seem 100% on this type of repair.we fix these all the time and very rarely get any back.get Gorilla glue from hardware store.clean area on knaumkeg best you can then apply a thin bead of gorilla glue about 1 cm from edge then push together with your hands and to hold in place fire a few 1"staples around top of heel to hold it in place then leave overnight.then remove staples and any excess glue it will pry of with small knife.then apply a bit of polish and job done.only apply a small bead as glue expands while dryinfg.

I dont do shoe repaires, but are often asked for a glue to stick soles back on.  I would have thought Gorrila glue would not be flexible enough when it dried for shoe repair. Which Gorrilla glue are you using

Thanks Bob
