I've used Shoe Goo effectively https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shoe-Goo-Small-Mini-Tube-Clear-Adhesive-Reapir-for-Shoes-0-18fl-oz-5-3ml/233090290998

Note - for best results follow the instructions.......

Also,  I've heard of people using sugru to seal gaps on shoes,  especially at flex points. Perhaps less of an issue with rigid road shoes.

Is Gorilla Glue any good? Or not as good for this as Shoo Goo?
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

I used Gorilla Glue on my walking boots when the Vibram sole became detached. It worked fine, just don't overdo the glue as it does expand.
