Anyone who skateboards knows the pain of wearing through a brand new pair of skate shoes in a matter of days, and Ripcare is a shoe repair glue established by a group of German skaters that wanted to create a product that was a good alternative to Shoe Goo but run by skaters for skaters. It can be used to either repair holes or applied to new shoes to re-enforce the stitching or create protective layers to high abrasion areas, which drastically helps slow down the rapid wearing process skateboarding inflicts on your skate shoes.
