How To Replace Heavily Worn Rubber Boot Heels
Heels wear down. Replacing boots can be very expensive. Here is a solution which can save you a fortune (or £330 in this case)!
1) Abrade the surface to give give the glue some grooves to cling on to. We did this using a drill but it can also be done using sandpaper.
2) Secure your boots so that the soles are flat. The flatness during curing will determine how accurately the glue will take shape of the heel. If there is excess glue, however, it can be sanded or cut off once cured.
3) Tape around the heel so that the adhesive can’t spill and so that it takes the correct shape.
4) Squeeze glue onto the heel and let it settle and take shape. We recommend 15g for a pair of heels.
5) If there are air bubbles, pop them/brush them out using a sharp object. We used a piece of metal wire.
6) Allow the adhesive to cure for 12 hours.
7) Trim excess glue if required and enjoy your new heels!
