Terrible iphone pic, but you get the point. Do I leave it alone, or glue it back down?

Glue it back down. Or the whole thing will come off.

It's "blind stitched" either the cement loosened or they missed a spot when gluing the flap down.
Glue it back DO NOT USE CRAZY GLUE!

I guess I will glue it down, but not with crazy glue. It happened just over some time. I do a lot of walking. I live in NYC so my shoes take a beating with each wear.

That's exactly what I was thinking. It's worn down to the stitching before on my other shoes, but never peeled like this. Thanks for all of the responses, guys.

Not at all what I was expecting when I clicked on this thread. Anyway, maybe call Leffot to see what they recommend doing.

No reason not to glue it down if you wanna. Elmers time. Do not call Leffot, call a shoe repair place. Leffot sells shoes, does not repair them.

Doc's right but it might get pretty ratty looking in the meantime.

Slip some Titebond III in there and let it dry.
