Assessing the damage to a soleless shoe
It is a bit of a nightmare to lose the sole of your shoe particularly when it happens at the most inconvenient of times. This unexpected event can occur through clipping the edge or toe of the sole on a protruding edge or paving stone whilst walking along the street. There is normally an underlying causal issue with the sole that leaves it vulnerable and predisposed to incidental damage. For example a shoe sole can lose its adhesion with upper through constant wear and tear or the leaching of water. Once the separation happens your shoes or boots take on a completely different aspect. Fashion conscious wearers are faced with the dilemma of repairing or replacing the footwear altogether. If they are a cherished pair of shoes that you would like to continue wearing, the only solution is to glue the sole back on.
