Is to use the "g"-shaped pad with extra weight.
If leaky sole has a honeycomb design, when worn it formed void – heel fails, the shoes at this point becomes thinner. Lift the insole and thoroughly clean the honeycomb from contamination, glue residue and torn cardboard. Then you can fill them with sealant (MS polymer) and give as follows to dry. Cut out the shape of the old insole cardboard templates, saturate them with the same tool and stick on the sole, then install the new insoles.
Sometimes cell sole flows because of the small puncture. In this case, also disconnect the insole (if it is in order, it can only be done at the site of puncture).
