    My muck boots riped at the toe this fall while climbing over barbed wire. Only the rubber is cut, didn't go through. Any suggestions on how to patch them up? another pair isn't in the budget

      Aqua seal. Or at least that's what I think it's called. I got some for my waders and they have been dry as a bone since.

        I second the Shoe Goo. In the shoe dept at WalMart for around $5. My dog tore holes and ripped the sole off the bottom of my Lacrosse boots. I put em back together with Shoe Goo and haven't been wet since. I went duck hunting with these boots Saturday. I can look through the clear Shoe Goo and see my toe in one point and it's still dry.

          I have used Aqua Seal for ages. You can buy it at ant dive shop, it is used to patch diving wet suits, but works great on shoes

              I have used Shoo Goo successfully and my brother is a dive instructor/shop owner. He swears by AquaSeal. Don't leave Shoo Goo tube anyplace where it can get frozen. The stuff changes and becomes more gelatinous. Also, put it in a ziplock bag after opening and resealing the cap. Your wife will appreciate that (very smelly odor lingers for weeks) and it will keep the tube fresher.

                Might also add, if you have worn crepe soles the AquaSeal can be used to extend the life by applying to the worn spots. In an emergency even used it for a temporary bicycle tire fixer upper.

                  Thanks, I'll try the shoo goo. I would try the AquaSeal but there isn't a dive shop in northern IN that I know of. Wal-Mart is everywhere.

                    Another vote for Aquaseal. I recently retired a pair of waders that were more Aquaseal than they were neoprene. You can find it outside of dive shops. In fact, I didn't even know they carried it. When I lived in Central Illinois, I could find it anywhere that sold waders. You might try your local farm supply store.
