    In my experience, nothing. They'll come off again after a few trips.

    Clean both surfaces then apply three thin coats of evostik at approx 5 min intervals to both surfaces then bond together and keep clamped for 12 hours or so.

    Works really well, biggest problem is trying to get the felt soles back off when you need to replace them again

    I recently used Gorilla glue to repair a felt sole which was starting to part
    from the upper.
    Brilliant stuff! I have walked about 8 miles in them since, no issues at all.
    As suggested on another post I used clamps around the edges

    Evo stik was fine for me. Followed the instructions, stuck fine, boots fell to bits before the sole came away. Got another two seasons out of them. Done this twice.

    That was my experience until somebody told me about Evostik Wet Grab.
    50+ trips, including a lot of tough rocky ones, and no sign of coming off.

    I used Gorilla glue last season, so far so good, a tad messy if you go OTT with it, but good stuff.
