    Have you thought of using a bicycle inner tube patch kit?

      That's exactly how I patched a set of old boots. Worked great. Did about 3 years ago now and it is still holding.

        Check your auto parts store. Usually they will have several type of repair materials available. A tire patch works well. T.C.

          Has anybody suggested a tire patch kit yet? That would probably be the best thing.

            I've patched an old ruber set with a bicycle tube patch. Still holding after 1 year.

              You should use a tire patch kit.

                  I would suggest looking into repairing it with a tire patch kit. I've heard those work well.
