i have the 32 ultralights and have gotten a small rip in the shell. does anyone have suggestions for something to glue it back down to the inner shell? pereferably something water proof and flexible while cold. how about a rubber coating to cover the toe with to protect it from wear? is there such a product? where would i find it?

thanks in advance.

Shoe goo might fix it. skateboarders put it on their shoes to make them last longer...

buy one of those gore tex patch kits and slap it on there. They come with pretty large pieces and they're cheap.

I have experienced better performance from FreeSole vs. ShoeGoo. YMMV

polyurethane construction adhesive (available in big tubes $8-10 you should be able to find it in a few colors) is pretty much the best that I've used that is flexible and doesn't let go for a long time.

Shoe Goo looses plasticity in the cold and will cease bonding to the boots.
