Adhesive for rebuilding Doc Ms sandals footbed?


Recommended Posts

Hi. The foam pad in the Doc Martins sandal has dry-rotted. I need to choose an adhesive/caulking to re-adhere footbed components. I was thinking about using silicone caulk/rtv. It would be nice to be able to lay down the adhesive, and then step into the sandal to form the footbed. 

What "glue" should I use?

Thanks. Chris.

any adheseve you use will no work to form a new footbed  .i would suggest white high density plastasote which when heat wil l form to the exact shape of your foot as you stand on it the cover  it and glue into place  or you could use medium density eva
