Shoe Goo is a product made specifically for this.
here is a non-affiliate amazon link but I suggest you buy it at a local spot. Most pharmacies or shoe repair places might have it. [link]
Just to add another option: Order some Shoe Goo off amazon, pull some old and busted shoes out of your closet and make them into skate shoes! I found an old pair of pumas and two pairs of destroyed Chuck Taylor's that are working great for me
Here is a link on amazon just so you know what to look for. It is almost identical to Goop Adhesive, which you might not be able to get where you are either since they’re made by the same company.
Another alternative is to get vulcanizing rubber cement that is used for commercial tire repair, which can be found at most auto parts stores. It is thinner than the other ones I mentioned, so it’s easier to apply but a little less durable. It is very flexible though and seems to hold parts together when combined with the drywall tape.
The drywall tape is a very key part to this whole repair process. What you want is the woven mesh style tape, not the regular paper drywall tape! You can cut and stick this tape on the inside of the body where you want to repair it, then coat over it with the rubber adhesive. Once dry it will make a very durable patch. Good luck!
Any big box store like Walmart. Also available on amazon.[link]
Used it for my peg turbo when the exact same thing happened. It held up after during the jfk 50 mile without a problem. Stuff is amazing.
Depending on the gash size, you could try using something like shoe goo. It’s basically liquid rubber in a tube.
I haven’t used it for this purpose, but when I used to skateboard a lot, we would use it to make our shoes last longer against grip tape. It is super strong and adheres really well.
I linked to a clear one but I have seen it in black as well at Walmart before.
I use Shoe Goo. It comes off clean if you need it to.
There is no heat. I just stabilized the 2 inductors and the capacitors. Never good to stress the wires and the connections. Tying them together made them very stable. I have since completely removed all the components and started fresh. Great feature for a very strong hold. Sets in an hour and cures overnight. Smells like vinegar; ventilate.
Shoe Goo is the toughest flexible adhesive I know. Maybe use a piece of thick cordura nylon or canvas folded over the seam. Be sure to wipe everything with rubbing alcohol first.
If it were me I would stitch the tear first with thick upholstery thread, then patch over that.
I had the same problem with them cutting up my heel, just spent about 30 mins on each shoe kinda working them around until the fabric loosens up so it doesn't hit so hard against my achilles.
Then for some reason the right shoe had a lip of fabric that was sharp, and i did a similar thing to those heel padding things. But just applied a little shoe goo over the sharp edge.
Interesting, given your height and weight maybe those forces are just natural for your gait. If this is the case I would recommend shoe goo.
Smear some of this stuff on the spots that you know where wear away, or already has, not sure how good the traction will be but the stuff is damn near indestructible. It will for sure increase the life of your shoes.
Normally /u/Micropolis would be correct, but in this case /u/the_hoser is correct: the silicone looks like it's torn. You can see the missing bottom of the piece in this image:
Do not use super glue; it'll discolor your controllers and it won't work for very long. Super glue dries hard so putting it on a flexible surface is a guaranteed failure. Use Shoe Goo instead. It won't discolor anything, it'll stick to both plastic and silicone, it's flexible when dry, and it's clear.
If you want to do it right then disassemble your controller, remove the torn-off piece, use Shoe Goo to glue the pieces together (glue from the inside of the sphere so the repair isn't visible), let it dry, then reassemble.
Looks like shoe goo. A lot of pitchers use it to protect the shoe on their back foot so it doesn't rip open. I use it on mine and it works really well, it's also cheap. [link]
I've been keeping track of three pieces of footwear i use only on runs (and one I use on walks): Vibram Vruns, Xero Z-Trail, Xero Z-Trek, and Teva Hurricanes. I run a lot and agree with you 100% that shoes that don't last long are not worth my time, hence my recordings.
In general, my shoes seem to do well for about 400-500 miles before I wear holes in them. I extend their life with shoe goo. Keep in mind my mileage is based on harsh conditions: running on hot asphalt (I only use these shoes when needed, otherwise I run unshod). This suggests a kinder user might get higher mileage.
I've read that most "typical" running shoes also last 300-400 which only makes me cringe at how much non-elite runners (who have to buy their shoes) would pay to keep running in their vaporflys.
I used to use shoegoo on the toes of my cleats.
Easy fix with Shoe Goo.
Apply generously to both sides of that strap and squeeze some into the sole. Use a bamboo skewer or toothpick to spread it around. Clamp it in place for a few days to let it cure properly.
Just make sure to squeeze all of the air out of the tube before putting the cap back on or it will turn into a hard lump. That way, you will get many more uses out of a single tube.

Your question has two interesting parts: but the short answer is "it's not a myth in some cases, but in the case of minimalist shoes, you can get more life out of shoes."
This is what you need good citizen…😂
Flexible and tough.

Try shoe glue
I like this
I use shoe goo for a lot of things like this.
that appears to be a glue. most likely used when your sole splits from the shoe and you need to glue it back on.
shoe goo is basically just a rubber paste.
check these links and see which ones will be cheapest with shipping
or you could always ask the local sports store to get some in? is there a shoe repair place nearby? just an idea...
Is it possible the problem is that some of the glue entered into the hole, so now it's not smooth?
Use a little bit of shoe goo.

This is like a superglue/elmers glue hybrid. When it hardens, you can easily peel it off. Stick some superglue in the keyhole where that foreign object is jammed into, wait a couple of hours, and pick it out. Afterwards you can use that glue to repair your shoes and what not.
