Default Rubber boot sole repair

Well my lacrosse alpha burly soles came off this week and I would really like to reattach them, the boots are still in really good shape. Anybody have any recommendations on what will work?
Thanks

Perow, had the same deal on a pair of Lacrosse I had. Tried shoe goop, then silicone, 3M adhesive, and couldn’t ever get anything to hold for very long. And that is cleaning both surfaces to be glued VERY thoroughly, and then taping sole to boot while it cured. Am surprised JB weld held for Rex, unless he’s using something other than “original” cuz when it cures it’s not overly pliable. Cuz the sole of your boot is bending and flexing the whole time your foot is in em. Good luck brother! Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

And I get where you’re coming from... perfectly good waterproof upper, good soles, and still useless!

I bet Phil Swift sells something, I would call a Lacrosse rep and maybe they will give you a smoking deal on a new pair.

My lacrosse boots did this too after about 12 uses. I used some roofing silicone and it has held so far.

I've tossed other boots that came apart like that. I prefer not to be out in the middle of nowhere without a sole.

Shoe Goo fixed mine. I cleaned both soles and boot uppers with alcohol and used a wire wheel lightly on both to "rough em up a bit". Plus that removed the old glue residue some... Put the shoe goo on and made sure I covered the boot surface 100%. Stuck 'em together and tightly taped them together for a couple days... Been using the repaired pair heavily for a couple years now around the farm... I admit though that I don't use them for hunting any longer. I will not buy those sneaker shoe style rubber boots of any brand again. They ALL do the same thing.

Look for Seal All glue at the Depot. Been around for years, gas and oil proof. It's held many a shoe and boot sole on for me until they would wear out. Cheap too.

Mine did the same thing a few years ago. I used some marine grade epoxy (picked up at the local hardware/feed store) and gooped that all over them and used some wood clamps to press em back on. Let them sit up for a day or so and they are still going strong.

I wonder if 3M super weather stripping cement would work. That is some tough stuff, been around for ages.

No help for you ...sorry
But

I’m reading that Lacrosse boots MORE THAN SUCK!!!

Chunk them ho’s in the trash and buy a good boot. I don’t know what that boot is but apparently the ones you have are junk. When there is 18 posts and prolly 15 of them say “try this, it worked on mine” ...........

If you read reviews on em and 15 out of 20 says the sole comes off, they are junk...you wouldn’t buy them

I've used e6000 on the same boots, has held for years. Also used it on my son's justin snake boots last year and its held really well. Be sure you fough up both surfaces, tape it after glued, and let cure per directions. Pretty sure I bought the e6000 at walmart.

That being said I have switched to mucks and they are superior, boycott or not

Not sure about your fix OP, but I quit buying Lacrosse for this very reason. I could never get more than two years out of a pair of their boots. Waders are even worse.
