I broke my nike interchangeable sunnies through on the frame, near the hinge. The break is hidden from view. What sort of glue will hold it? I have tried superglue and plastic modellers glue without success.

Thanks
I have never found anything that works either (nm)LC

I have an Indonesian 12-year-old, but I don't have her making sneakers, if you know what I mean.

Go to a home center (home cheapo or lowes) and get yourself some two part epoxy. It's much stronger than superglue or model glue. You get two tubes; one's the glue and the other is the activator. Mix them together and it's amazing how strong the bond is.

The biggest problem is that the frame is so thin that there isn't much surface area for the glue to adhere to. I think you might also contact Nike and plead with them. You never know, if you're nice they might send you a pair at a highly discounted rate. Worth a try at least.

Goo luck.

The same thing happened to mine. If you search around the Nike website, you'll find a link to a company that does their repairs and spare parts. I tried epoxy, but it didn't work. I had to order a replacement frame for a bit $30-40. They only had a 1 year warrantee... a rip-off I think. Then I wrote a warning review here (or was it on mtbr.com?).
