We’ve all pathetically tried prolonging the death of our most beloved skates shoes. Whether you’ve used duct tape, cardboard, shoe goo or all three, the likelihood of the situation is that you did a great job in looking more like a bum with each skate session. The larger the hole, the more goo you use. If you don’t look like a bum, you’ll certainly look like you missed your paper towel while fapping it to the latest offerings from Lisa Ann.
Tearing and repairing skate shoes correctly is a conundrum that’s plagued skater’s for years now. And even though looking like a skater is a badge of honor we ourselves are willing to wear proudly, at the end of the day, it will not attract the opposite sex, unless you find yourself a “ramp tramp”.
Cosmetics aside, this badge of honor can also only last for so long. With all that wear, you’ll probably end up hurting yourself. It’s because of this reason that we’ve put together a step-by-step way to fix that nasty hole in your shoe, all while making your shoe look brand new.
Note: If you make your layer of shoe goo as thick as a dime, you can expect the goo to last for another 6-10 sessions, depending on how hard your shredding.
