The leather insole is worn away in the forefoot and toes area of my KSO Treks. This has created some holes between the toes because the fabric between the toes is sewn to a strip of leather that is part of or attached to the leather insole. The stitching of the fabric to the leather strip is intact where the holes are. The leather has just worn away enough to detach and create a hole.
In order to fix these holes I think I need to glue that little leather strip straight to the now exposed rubber inside the toes because anything else that I put in there will just wear away.
Anyone have any experience with this kind of fix?

I'm curious about the tears. Is it possible to attached some photos regarding these holes ?? The fabric of the side of my KSO toes were so worn off that I have to coat them with freesole to prevent holes, but this is only temporary solution.

I have had good results with Gorilla Glue between the toes of my Treks and Mocs.  Good luck.
