Converse All-Stars shoe repair ideas?
posted by Auden to Clothing, Beauty, & Fashion (15 answers total) 6 users marked this as a favorite
My year-old pair of Converse All-Stars are starting to rip along the sides, where the cloth meets the sides of the rubber soles. (one rip is roughly 1.5" long).
I have my replacement pair, but I'd like to keep this pair to bum around in... is there any good, cheap, dependable, simple way to repair these rips? I'm thinking of some kind of rugged patch with cloth backing which could be applied to the interior of the shoe, re-connecting the cloth with the sole from the inside.
(It's probably pointless, and I'll have to chuck them, but I thought I'd ask if anyone had a solution. With the current quality of All-Stars, this problem must come up pretty often)
