It's so sad when your favourite WBSJ gets a hole... :(
Here is a good news. You can easily repair your WBSJ boots!
They can be repaired with seam sealer and patches for rain gear, tents, boots etc. One of the products is called “field repair kit” from Woods.
It can be purchased at Canadian Tire for $5 or $6. You can also find similar products at other outdoor stores.
You can apply repair adhesive on the patch and apply it on the inside damaged part. Then, apply some to the area on the outside and leave it for 24 hours.
It's sealed completely and it's almost invisible:)
