glue for boot sole

My last two Rocky boots fell apart- used shoe goop for the soles, that held pretty good, can't find any in local stores. Luckily my newer Lacrosse boots are holding up, but I have a couple of pairs of shoes that the soles have partially come off- will gorilla glue work? Any suggestions? Some years back New Balance outsourced to China (gosh who has not?) and the glue holding the sole is inferior, so I would like to mend mine. Guess I can blame it partly on the higher water levels this year, and that I have gotten all my footwear wetter than normal.

Shoe Goo has extended the life of many boots and use it for leaky wader seams/holes as well

Re: glue for boot sole

Will try Wally's again- the local one is really pitiful as far as inventory and availability of products compared to others. I need to move to the hinterland.
