Tips and tricks:

Clean tools = happy workspace

If you use a spatula or brush to apply Pattex Special Shoe to surfaces, be sure to clean your tools immediately after use. Best use solvents, like paint thinner or benzene, so you can use your tools again. After all, a clean workspace is a happy workspace.

No stains

If you get any glue on your shoes where it shouldn’t be seen, first try and wipe off with a benzene-soaked cloth. Besides, stains that are already dry can easily be removed with chemical cleaning. On other surfaces, you can use thinner. However it’s best to test the material first, so there is no damage.

Step by step

1. Make sure surfaces are clean, dry and free of grease or dust. While Pattex Special Shoe can bond a wide range of material combinations, it isn’t suitable for poly-ethylene, polypropylene and expanded polystyrene.


2. Apply glue to both surfaces.


3. Before joining, wait until solvents evaporate. 10 to 15 minutes at normal room temperature should do just fine.


4. Once the solvents have evaporated, you have 2 hours of bonding time.


5. Check the adhesive is dry before joining the parts. Pattex Special Shoe should not stick to the finger.


6. Make sure the parts are aligned perfectly and press together for a few seconds. Give it a good firm press.


7. Ready, set, go: Time to get your running shoes on again!
