How to Repair Split Leather Golf Shoes

Updated April 17, 2017

Shoes don't last forever. After playing a season or two of golf, you may be dismayed to find that your leather golf shoes are developing a split between the sole and the upper part of your shoe. Leather golf shoes can be expensive to have repaired by a cobbler and even more expensive to replace. Fortunately, a split in your leather golf shoes can be easily repaired at home.

Wipe away any dirt or dust from the split in your shoe using a cloth soaked in soap and water. Wipe it again with water and let it dry.

Apply the shoe repair glue to the inside of the split, coating the entire surface inside the crack. Push the sole and the upper part of the shoe together to seal the split. Wipe away any excess glue that comes out of the crack.

Wrap duct tape around the shoe to maintain pressure on the split while the glue is drying. Wrap the tape around the sole and upper part of the shoe. Refer to the drying time listed on the package of the glue and remove the tape after the glue has completely dried.
