e6000 is much better than shoe goo, and blue painters tape is much better than clear packing tape. packing tape is more likely to leave a residue.Started the gluing process of my 2002 cool grey IXs which the outsole completely came off.
On the left shoe, I am using what I have always used for the last 20 year! A shoe repair glue from Taiwan since I was a little kid. The only down side is it dries yellow where the shoe-goo dries clear. I will probably try shoe goo on the right shoe to see how they hold up.
I'm also using box tape instead of shoe laces to put pressure on the glue. This way you can pull and apply pressure and just stick it to the midsole without the laces destroying the shape of the shoe.
round and around we go. the same argument could be made for this whole thread.
personally i think preserving the logo on the insole if you are going to wear the shoe is pretty funny. it's like driving a new car yet you don't want to have the leather crease when you sit on it.
Saw this too late. Thanks for the tips. I got it done already tho lol. For the record, my yellow tube of glue worked much better than the shoe goo as well. Left shoe turned out ok, but the right shoe that i used shoe-goo on sucked. They were harder to apply while drying to quick. Shoe goo was decent to fill in some of the gap tho.e6000 is much better than shoe goo, and blue painters tape is much better than clear packing tape. packing tape is more likely to leave a residue.
You're not ungluing anything. The insole isn't even hard to take out in the first place. Nowadays you can just pull it out with no force. Some of them aren't even glued in. It's not like pulling out the insole destroys the shoe or something. Nothing changes you just put it back in and wear the shoe.i already said this... but again, ripping out a glued-in insole to preserve the logo on it, defeats the whole purpose of preserving the logo in the first place IN MY OPINION.
If you're going to unglue the dam shoe to do it... whats really the point?
THIS. Almost all of my shoes' insoles can be easily taken out. The only time it's hard is if you applied pressure and already walked on them a lot. It's not glued in. There is just a sticky residue in the bottom that keeps the insole from sliding around. Shoe manufactures expect you to change the insole, especially for those with orthopaedic foot problems anyways.You're not ungluing anything. The insole isn't even hard to take out in the first place.

you've got it all figured out don't you? it has nothing to do with resell.people think they are gunna fool someone when they sell the shoes or something like that, i dont understand it either and if you are going to try to trick someone when selling them i hope the logo comes off when you remove the tape! ha
I've been trying two months to clean this, probably over 10 cleans and it somehow just doesnt go away.
Anyone know how to properly get rid of this yellow mesh thing on my concords? its really ugly , I've tried using laundry detergent with warm water and cleaning up but it doesn't work and idk how it got yellow in the first place.
Before you put alcohol on it try using a qeu tip with hand lotion on it. Just rub it in circles over the scuff and it should buff it out and make it shiny and new. If you put alcohol on it it can melt the plastic coating over the patent leather and mass it up.
Somebody help!! My patent leather is scatched I think I heard alcohol helps
