How to repair a Vans sole
The best way to fix the bottom of your Vans sole is to apply glue or relevant shoe adhesive. Any glue that is engineered to fix rubber or cement will work well.
All Vans are constructed through a unique vulcanization process where shoe components are welded together using heat. As a result, rubber foxing is vulcanized to the rubber sole of the shoe and melt-welded to the canvas uppers.
With extended use, the sole of your Vans may split away from the canvas uppers. Simply re-glue the areas that have pulled away. We recommend using some contact cement adhesive for a durable and long-lasting solution. If you're in a bind, then a shore repair glue or something similar is an excellent stopgap.
And finally, if you’ve just bagged yourself a brand new pair of Vans, protect them with our Vans Shoes Care Canvas Kit (it even comes in a travel size).
