    Check around for "Shoe Goo" it works ok, don't expect a long time repair but it works in a bind...

    There's also a glue called "Barge" that's made for that.. It's a very strong contact cement. if you use it, just follow the directions carefully..

    Do you have a shoe repair/cobblers shop near to you?

    For a reasonable charge, they should be able to repair your boots.

    Yelp. Barge adhedsive is the way to go.
    You apply it to both halves. Use just enough to cover the surfaces evenly,not to much and let it get tacky and then squeeze the 2 pieces together firmly.Be sure you have them lined up because you probably won't get it apart. If you have a clamp then use it. Overwise just place something heavy on it(check to make sure its still lined after doing so,you don't want to come later and see it glued together crooked). Leave it clamped for a few hours. This stuff is strong.
    BTW its what the Muppets are held together with :thumbsup :)
    It can be purchased at any shoe repair shop.
