Coming apart

These Chota boots are dead! As you can see the upper material has given in in the rim along the sole and the boot is slowly "dissolving". As you can also see it is not only the outer layer that rips. The materials in the inner boot are also on the verge of total disintegration.

Going throught the same thing right now with mine. Trying to nurse them through just one more season with Shoe Goo and sewn together in spots with fly line backing. And the felt soles are hard and slippery. Any ideas on how to soften them back up?
