1.5 year old shoes, non sb nike, i just add rubber on used areas once a month, and i use old lunarlon insoles from old  P-rod V



Awesome info snake!
I recently thought that a thread on this very topic would make sense. I have so many shoes that I would still love to skate but the sole (profile) is simply gone. Would you mind also sharing your experience on what type of rubber (thickness, formula, etc) you used?

Most hardware stores have rubber squares or sheets varying in thickness. Cuts easy and it's grippy even though it's smooth.

I wonder if a rubber epoxy type compound would work. I imagine it would be similar to Shoe Goo but something more industrial. I've been doing it to offset razor tail on decks. Basically a liquid wood/epoxy to re-tail boards. I would think there's a compound out there that would work for outsoles.
42 years young. Skatin' since '80. Take yours slams, get up smiling, say #thankyouskateboarding, and get back up and do it again. Because FUN.
