The sole on a pair of my favorite shoes began to separate from the shoe. I slipped a little tacky glue between the bottom of the shoe and the top of the sole, clamped the shoes with a couple binder clips, and by next morning they were good as new.

I have a pair of Patrick Ewing basketball shoes (very rare). They are 20 years old and when I wore them for the first time the rubber at the side of the sole started to crack. Now the sole is hanging off the shoe. You know (talking shoes)?

Can this be fixed so that they are wearable?

These are nice shoes so I would take them to a shoe repair shop. This may cost more than any "home" repair but they will usually do a very good job.

Use a product called Shoe Goo, I get it at Family dollar but I think it will be easy to find. It`s great.

I agree with rpfunke. Use Shoe Goo. I think Wal Mart sells it also. Works great!
