Repair Tennis Shoes

According to Stanley Schuler's "How to Fix Almost Everything," holes in canvas tennis shoes can be repaired by cutting a small round patch of canvas and coating it with Devcon Patch glue and applying it to the hole on the outside of the shoe.

Rubber torn loose from canvas?

"Coat rubber and canvas with Pliobond cement and let dry. Then apply a second coat of cement to both surfaces and press together when cement is tacky."

Hole in the sole or sole thin?

"Clean thoroughly with gasoline or benzine. Roughen surface with sandpaper. Fill with plastic rubber or So-Lo rubber. Let dry 24 hours. Note: since plastic rubber is black, this repair looks good only on dark soles."
