When you’re always on the move, accidents are bound to happen – hello, snapped stiletto. To keep inevitable annoyances from ruining your day, take a cue from the cast of the movie Spy and ensure your personal toolkit is always stocked with daily essentials. Always in our arsenal? Shoe Goo.

How to Fix a Broken Heel

Step 1: Be sure the area you’re repairing is clean and dry, then apply a shoe adhesive (ahem, Shoe Goo) to both the heel and the sole.

Step 2: Allow the solvents in the glue to evaporate until it’s puttylike (about 5 to 10 minutes), then press both pieces back together in their proper positions.

Step 3: Keep pressure on the heel and the shoe with a rubber band for anywhere between 1 and 24 hours. The longer the glue cures, the stronger the bond.

Step 4: Remove the elastic and strut on with confidence.
