Whether you foot break until you have no soles, or you flip tricks all day long; Shoe Goo is the savior of all shoes in need. Repair those holes and keep skating! Nothing is worse than going shoe shopping, having to try on various pairs until you find one that is just ‘okay’, they are never as comfortable as your current pair though. Nothing compares to a set of shoes that have been broken in, comfort city! Keep your current pair alive as long as possible with Shoe Goo!
Another use for Shoe Goo is to coat the areas of your shoes that will receive damage before you skate them. When the protective coating fades away you can just reapply it before the damage makes it to the shoe itself. Repeat this step over and over again to keep your shoes as fresh as possible.
Shoe Goo was created in 1972 by Lyman Van Vliet, a 45-year-old senior executive at Hughes Aircraft Co. with a degree in physics from Wayne State University. A frequent player of tennis, Van Vliet was dissatisfied with the durability of the soles of his tennis shoes and sought a method to extend their life by repairing them.
