well i have a pair of diadora Jalepenio II's...yes they are MTB shoes...and i still love em, they look almost new even after 2 1/2 years (i don't get off road much :( any way my problem is the soul on the left shoe is pulling off from the shoe itself's on the inside next to the bike (from the front all the way to the back), probaly cause of how I pull my feet, but anyway does anyone know how i can get it fixed?...i was thinking a super glue of some sort...but i don't wanta ruine my shoes...they are the only pair for SPD's i have and i can't ride either my road or MTB w/ out them, so any sugestions?...could a shoe shop help me maybe? thanks

There was a time, not too long ago, when shoe repari shops were in abundance. Today, we're used to replacing stuff that breaks rather than repair.

I'd at least investigate a shoe repair shop before I tried to glue it myself. They may have access to a better (all weather) adhesive... and might even warrant their work.

Good luck and...

Be the bike.
