Good luck with those! 

I've found that a primer/adhesive that may work on one pair may not on the next. Weirdly a tip I was given from an ole boy seems to work best:

Prime with a thin layer of flexible superglue then use your usual plastic adhesive (I use Bos.5050), 

seems to work for me.

The superglue method is the way I do it. There seems to be a lot of this type of material about now. Spread superglue over bottom of boot using flat object then when dry use 5050 on both. Warm slightly, quick press then leave for a short time before finishing off. Good luck

It’s hard to tell from the photos but it looks to be the stuff I use S10 primer on.

i usually coat the sole with the primer and immediately brush in some 6092 making sure the 2 mix together. Usually in a swirly & stabby sort of motion.

then I leave it to dry for half an hour.

thin layer of 6092 on top and glue the new sole as normal. Once dry, the shoe will remain slightly tacky. Use the slightest of heat and put new sole on top. Too much heat though will ruin it.

leave to set for 10 minutes and carry on as normal.

Well I went with the superglue technique , spread it on with a washing up sponge then 50/50 left overnight then another coat of 50/50 , gently warmed up and lightly pressed.  It’s stuck like s@#t to a blanket. 
Thanks for the replies.

I was first told that tip about 15 years ago when superglue was a swear word in our trade!

I use the stuff to seal this type of thing or crumbling Eccos (as long as they aren't too bad). Couldn't image not having the stuff around now.
