Just doing a repair job on a pair of my walking shoes.
The sole parted from the upper at the foot arch.
using contact adhesive to fix it.
Wanted to hold the repair firm and give it chance to bond.........so gave it a few wraps of electrical tape.......love the stuff.....so handy in the field as well.

Any one else carry a roll in their kit?

Nice to have some handy Al.........I have also tried that "Gorilla tape" for a few jobs......good stuff sticks well........ and strong.
You can tear it down the middle for binding type repairs.

Amazing stuff but found it disconcerting when climbing into an RAF Puma on a dark hill top in Armagh to find the floor of the load bed covered in it; apparently to provide a non slip surface rather than holding it together!
