    I have several pairs of old Oakley shows which I have kept in a cool dry place in my closet. I started wearing my first generation TEETH which I must say are the most comfortable of all my older generation sneakers. Well, after wearing them I found that not only is the material separating from the sole, but the thick parts of the rubber are cracking. I tried a quick Goop show repair but I don't think this is going to work. Alas I think these TEETH are done.

    I reckon they can still be saved. I've used a special industrial strength polyurethane compound to mend rubber and it can also be used as a binding agent. Comes in jet black too

    I have access to a ton of industrial stuff. I might as well make a mold of the sole and recreate it. All of the rubber on it is cracking. Bandaids may work too!!!!!!

    For a small fee, I'll 3d print some new soles for you in bulk, and list them here in the forum. 3D printed stuff seems to sell well here.;)
