No, but contact cement won't work on a porous medium.

I doubt you'll find any adhesive working well; afaik those are welded
(solvent/heat) connections, not adhesives. Once the foam substructure
has failed, they're toast.

Good for mowing lawns and shopping.

I've used "Shoe Glue"
http://www.powerpoxy.com/productDeta...?productID=462 which works well
for attaching trailgaiter velcro strips to the fabric portion of a shoe.
I've also used it to reattach flapping portions of the sole on the bottom of
running shoes. Cured overnight, this will hold for around a week, though as
dpb says, it's not permanent. A good product to have around though.
