For your consideration, if you wear sneakers pack a tube of either Shoe Goo or Loctite Shoe Glue for your world cruise.

 

On a recent cruise I had a sneaker that started to separate the upper from the sole.  Left unattended it would have become a flapper.

 

In my standard travel tool kit was a brand new tube of Loctite Shoe Glue.  I repaired the separated area, and over the course of the trip had to do two more repairs.  

 

 

We were doing a back to back to back in 2021…..which was our warm up for the world cruise we had booked for 2022-23.  We were in Colonia Uruguay when the sole started flapping on DH’s well worn Merrill hiking shoes.  We were about 30 days into a 54 day cruise.  Our next stop was Punta del Este, so we went shoe shopping with DH wearing his Tevas sandals (his only other pair of shoes).  We also went hunting for shoe glue to glue them back together.  Got back to the cabin and went to repair the shoes, but they had disappeared.  Turned out our cabin attendant took them and got both shoes repaired.  You couldn’t even tell that they had fallen apart.
