Sorry, but once your soles are gone, there's nothing worth doing. Maybe covering the hole until it widens a bit more. But you'll have little grip or support. I like to patch it up from the inside with some duct tape, but only to make it last a little longer as the hole eats through the rubber. Consider sanding your griptape a bit. Vulc shoes are usually more grippy, and the sensitivity might help you learn not to drag your soles so much.

if you take duct tape and put it over the hole (from the inside of your shoe) then use shoe goo and build around it. i've patched massive holes this way and it always works well. make sure you layer the shoe goo and let it cure overnight

My poor skate homie would basically Frankenstein shoes,shoe gooing other soles to what he was currently skating and gnarly patch jobs until he could afford new kicks at Ross or hand me downs from the crew. The more you skate the more your shoes die, some last longer than others but the variable is also how heavy your foot is skating.

You should pre glue your common wear spots with super glue.....there's also an article out there on making your own toe caps which you might find helpful....

If you don't mind wearing wack shit, just buy some shoes at Ross or Marshall's. Adio shoes are like $10 bucks there. And yea, I do mean Adio.
You know I thought these forums were a for skating not discussing fetishes
