Because I have to be certain that my shoes are top quality, I put to the test. I have taken my shoes with this glue into the ocean, pool, through the washing machine cycle, etc. and it stays. In order to get it off, we have to either pour alcohol or down wrinkle releaser on it and then yank really hard.

Also, always remember to roughen up the strap surface before you begin. That is essential when doing anything.

It's melting point is very high. This is very important if you are selling in Arizona in the summer. It gets so hot that the glue starts to melt on the shoes. The set time is very good for making shoes, 30-40 seconds. That is long enough to get the shoe wrapped, but not so long that you are precluded from moving forward to next step.

The link to that part of my website is http://thebuckleboutique.com/gluesticks.aspx It retails for $.70 per stick and wholesales for $.50 per stick. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks! Cathie
I do not see a spot on your page for wholesale. How many do i have to order to get the wholesale price?

The sticks are one of the products, that do not require a minimum to get the wholesale price. I think you just have to register as a wholesale customer. The discounted price should be applied.

Thanks! Cathei

FYI - I would use a nail or something a bit smaller to puncture the foil of the tube of shoe goo. The cap makes a pretty large hole which means a pretty large amount disperses at one time. It's curing right now, so I'm not sure if the glue really works yet. Also, how do you rough up the surface, sandpaper?

we actually have a drill press that has a sander attachment on it. However, we do tons of shoes. If you don't do that many, sandpaper will work fine. Just be careful to not scatch the sole of the shoe.

I'm also curious how to use these. Do I put them in my regular size glue gun? On average how many shoes will one stick be enough for?

No I have not had the glue on long, but compared to everything else I have used, it does the trick.

As for the glue sticks..those sound awesome! I checked out your site though and they look like regular glue sticks? How are these different than the hot glue sticks I buy at Michheals? Thanks!!

I've tried the shoe goo, so far, so good. I just posted on another thread, but here's a quick recap:

it's stinky, and it starts to set quickly, like hot glue, but not super fast. It will peel back off if you wait too long. It seemed easiest to put it on the ribbon, I think it makes less mess that way. I then smoothed it out, and put it on the shoe. It dried nice and strong, and I have bent the back strap on the flip flop (toddler ones) over and over and there's no sign of it coming off. I made the shoes monday.

HTH

Oh and it takes 24-72 hours to cure to maximum adhesion.
