Richard,
I have dropped many soles from my wading boots and tried some crazy repairs. Like flyman01 posted; the key to gluing is to have a dry and clean surface. I used rubbing alcohol and an old tooth brush to clean the sole and boot bottom. Then, I lightly scuffed them up with some fine grit sand paper.

Finally; I used underwater specific epoxy from the box stores and some duct tape to hold it tight.

After that; I applied super glue around the seam of the repair. That last repair lasted for 2-months until I could send them off for replacement.

Hope this helps.
