| | Re: my first flip flops
I use shoe goo around the soles of the shoes. You take a file and rough it up a bit then put the shoe goo on. I always tell people that the ribbon could come off. Its their choice ribbon around or not. There is a whole thread on here talking about glues used on flip flops. So far I haven't had any problems with it coming off. Also, I sew the bows on the top of the shoes rather than just gluing.
I've tried hot glue and e 6000 and so far the shoe goo seems to hold up better.
