I ve used Amazing Goop on shoe soles with great results. It is good stuff. Need to let it cure for 48 hours for best results.

Any good cobblers left over there? That trade is still teached in places.

What do you think? Powers or Jameson for my evening shot today.

Yeah, I pass one on my way to work every day, but he is strictly old school, leather.
Dealing with modern materials is a whole other world.
Jameson for drinking, preferably 1780 or Redbreast But if you are making hot whiskeys (very popular here this time of year) it has to be Powers.

Yeah old school cobblers they should learn the new tricks. Not many left around here, my friend has been picking up so much old equipment you should see his basement. Nothing all that good, mostly worn from many many years of use and no repairs.

Yes took a pair of boots to one of them old timers and no he said, no glueing that. Same answer the guy who gave me them boots got at another old timer. Maybe I should have saved them and taken them to my friend, he is "new style", only been a cobbler for 30 years but he is 3,000 miles from me.

But thanks, I'll do the hot toddy with Powers and.......Maple Syrup I got from my friend the cobbler, had a little taste degustation in his basement stash last time I was there. He was trying to give me lots of that old eguipment at the same time but I sure took the "private reserve" maple syrup.......

Maybe look up if the trade is still teached in Ireland like it is in Quebec.If there is such a trade school they may be able to hook you up with someone keeping up with the new adhesives technology. New stuff that came out in the last 2-5 years such as flexible CAs. I think I'll get my friend to send me a bottle with that new pair of safety shoes I have to order from him.

Don't forget the essential part here, a slice of lemon studded with cloves.

No worries, I may have a little Irish blood in me and cloves in the larder. So many came to French Canada during the Famine, lots of Simms....O'Farrell etc where I come from.Many came off the boats without parents or....shoes and were adopted in Quebec. Bloodlines got a little mixed back then.

Only Whiskey this Canadian will drink is Irish Whiskey.

Good luck with the shoes!
