I have a pair of Teva P-2's that are nearing the end of their life. I've really loved everything about them except the lightweight material Teva puts inside the exposed split-toe. After some use that softer material eventually tears and you get things entering through the split and your toes are somewhat exposed walking on sharp surfaces.

I am considering other booty options (I know the P-1 has a closed split) but, like I said, I really like the P-2. So I'm thinking about cutting a small piece of rubber (maybe from an old bike tire) to cover the exposed split. It should keep some of the flexibility and protect it.

I'm just not sure of the best glue/adhesive to use for rubber-to-rubber (feel free to drop as much sexual innuendo as you'd like ;)). I assume it still needs to remain flexible and not get brittle. I'll try this out on my old P-2's before I throw down $80 for a new pair.

Thanks, in advance, for the help.

I just had great luck using gorilla glue to re-attach the sole to the toe of an old pair of cross sport sneakers i use for creek shoes, it works fantastically, they feel nearly new. Following precisely the instructions on the packaging is highly recomended for not making a huge sticky foamy mess..

glue sniffing

I've used my hypalon/neoprene glue to fix teva blowouts. had a strap pull out of the heel, sliced the sandal open , repositioned the strap, and glued it all back together. 1+ year later, holding up fine
