Based on this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=154384

I explored a few different options, including Barge cement (both the toloune-free and original), Shoe Goo, 2-part epoxies, etc., to glue carbon lasts to soft, synthetic uppers. I figured maybe some others would benefit from my experiences, in case you're shoes are coming apart from use and you'd like to fix.

Gear Aid's AQUASEAL + SR is the adhesive to use. PERIOD. I had good initial results with some of others listed, but none were long lasting. Tips- Scuff & clean the surfaces intended to be glued together, apply glue to both surfaces and press together for =>24hr.

I think it depends on the shoe and how much it separated, I tried barge cement on a pair of cx shoes that were coming apart in the front at the edges and it worked but didnt last long after a couple rides it started to fail.
