Shoe Goo is butadiene rubber in a solvent. Gorilla Glue is polyurethane adhesive. I have found that the butadiene sticks better to fabric than the polyurethane; both are better than silicone.
Nice boots. When you say Shoe Goo, do you mean that the boots you mentioned in your post have needed repair with this product?

No, I have not had to repair the Salomon boots. I have used the Shoe Goo for other applications, where I have noted its good performance in adhering to fabric.

You might want to check out the Polyurethane roof sealant, it has excellent fabric adhesion, and a third the cost.

The main problem with it is there is too much in a 11.5 oz. tube and the unused portion doesn't store well.

+1 for Salomon Toundras, especially since they are one of the few true cold-weather hiking / snowshoe boots available for women.
