kayak shoe repair

My beloved 5.10 kayak shoes have erupted and I don't want to ditch them. They smell so perty! Can you use aquaseal to heal the uppers or is there a better approach?

So you dont post out here for years and when you finally do its to abuse me, figures. I am doing well. I think I am feeling an illness coming on and I am going to run up and do Foxton on Thurs, interested? Now to the main topic, my shoes. They dont make these anymore and they are the first ones that havent been ripped off my feet during my swims so I gotta keep em.

Sorry, I have school and have to work on Thursday. I haven't been much of a boater this season
I have found any shoe that goes ABOVE your ankle to lower calf will stay on in a swim. I have NRS booties and have definitely put them thru a few good swim tests and they have been bomber.
glad you are doing good and still boatin!!

Barge Cement will work better than aqua seal

your local paddle shop should have it. if not go to the hardware store and get Dell's contact cement, the flammable kind, not the non-flammable. or shore adhesive.

I would recomend Shoe Goo. Works better than Aqua Seal and barge cement, in my experience. Can get at Walmart or probably grocery store

Almost any outdoor shop will have Barge, since it's what's used for re-soling climbing shoes. I had the same deal with my 5.10 Mavericks and was lucky enough to get another pair after the repair only lasted two weeks. I think that model is out of production now...
