Adhesive for delaminated toe clip straps?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Adhesive for delaminated toe clip straps?

First I tried contact cement. They came apart shortly.
Secondly, I tried Shoe Goo. Work pretty well but the added thickness made them too thick to put inside the pedal.
Thirdly, I used a tan colored Gorilla Glue. This dries too hard.
Any suggestion?

They are top quality straps, but from the 1980s.

Do you have a pic? I can only think of webbing or leather. Contact cement should work, if done well.

Goop “flexible adhesive.” If all else fails, 3M 5200.

You'd think new straps would be available. Maybe the safety issues have stopped new production?

If they are museum pieces then keep them in your museum. Get some new straps for every day wear and tear.
