Wish it were less expensive. Probably be a great decoy fix as well!?
Problem with contact cement is it gets brittle. Not good in an item designed to flex.
SG-20 is the best I have found. Thick and sticky, and cures fast. Only problem is, the product is a 2-part liquid, and has a mixing tube that mixes it as you move the plunger. That tube will seize up almost immediately if you don't keep it flowing, and then you have to switch tubes. They give you 3, so that is good, but if you have several repairs (or doing inside and outside a tear) have everything set up, and move fast.
Aqua Seal is good, no complaints.
SG-20, there is nothing better to patch the rubber boot. I patched flex areas of boots that had cracked wide open on 2 pairs of waders at the first of last season and at the end of this season they're still going strong. Trick is to squirt some through the hole and then spread out the patch on the surface about 3/4" on either side of the crack.
I resoled some hiking boots with contact cement around 1 year ago and no signs of brittleness yet but I will keep a lookout for that especially under ball of foot where flexing is greatest. Next time I need waders repair I will try SG-20, last experience I had with Aquaseal wasn't 100 percent effective.
Another vote for Shoo Goo, it seems to adhere very well to the neoprene material. It is also much more pliable and will not break and crack like some other adhesives.
