    fix the shoe spear

    Since I received my MC spears for the shoes I cannot figure out how to fix them definitly. Glue does not work and the spears got lose immediatly. Any one of you found a final solution?

    not a lot of Zams here...It looks like u may want to attach them with a earth magnet or something that would be VERY strong

    GOOP glue is very strong and flexible. I used it for the piping on my original scratch built Fett boots. Always held up.

    Glue does not work on wax...and inside the shoes is not accessible too.

    The "claw" is the spear, I assume you mean. The claws, I glued those into the toe guards with E6000 and they haven't come out since. I also have tiny screws on the inside holding them in. The toe guard cover is affixed to my boot with industrial velcro, completely lining the inside of the toe guard. The key to successful industrial velcro is to put it on and NOT TOUCH IT until 24 hours later. If you test it too early the glue on it will fail.

    Need any pics let me know. I've paraded in mine for years, no issues.

    My wife's toe spikes are held on with heavy duty epoxy glue and tiny screws. They have never come off or come loose.
