I have twice been bitten now by a certain brand of shoes, initials W.M. The insoles of these shoes, which aesthetically and comfort-wise I love, but the insoles keep coming unglued. The recent pair has a memory foam pad insole. I also have a pair of sandals that the thin leather insole peeled up around most of the shoe. Any suggestions for what kind of glue/glues I can use to repair them myself?

It needs to be a contact cement. Shoe Repair shops carry contact cements in tubes and squeeze bottles. You need to apply the cement to both the insole and the shoe and slide them in place. Let the glue dry once you have the insole in place and push it down after it dries.

Thank you, Randy. From what I was reading here, it seemed like for the leather that was a definite. But it will work on the memory foam too?

it should work, hard to say without seeing it in person.
