How can I sew shoe mesh damaged near the tip?

I have some Puma sport shoes that have a fine mesh on top. The mesh got cut not all the way through but the whole keeps growing. How can I sew this so close to the sole tip?

Repairing damaged shoe mesh near the tip can be a bit tricky, but it's definitely doable with the right tools and techniques. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to sew the damaged mesh near the tip of your Puma sport shoes:

Materials and Tools You'll Need:

  1. Needle: Use a thin, sharp needle with a small eye to make it easier to thread through the fine mesh.
  2. Thread: Choose a strong thread that matches the color of your shoes. You can use nylon or polyester thread for durability.
  3. Scissors: A pair of sharp scissors for cutting thread and excess material.
  4. Awl or Hole Punch: This will help you create evenly spaced holes for stitching.
  5. Clear Adhesive: Optional, but it can help reinforce the repair.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Prepare the Area: Clean the damaged area and remove any loose threads or debris. Make sure the mesh edges are smooth and not frayed.
  2. Position the Mesh: If the mesh has a clean tear, align the edges as closely as possible. If it's a small hole that's getting bigger, try to gather the edges together as best as you can without causing further damage.
  3. Create Stitching Holes: Use an awl or hole punch to create evenly spaced holes along both sides of the damaged area. These holes will be used for stitching, so make sure they're close enough to hold the mesh together securely.
  4. Thread the Needle: Thread your needle with a length of thread (about 18 inches) and tie a knot at the end.
  5. Start Stitching: Begin stitching from one end of the damaged area, going from the inside of the shoe to the outside. Make your first stitch, leaving a small tail inside for extra security. Then, thread the needle back through the hole to the inside of the shoe.
  6. Continue Stitching: Repeat the stitching process, going through the existing holes and creating new ones if necessary. Keep your stitches close together to ensure a strong repair. Make sure you're pulling the thread tight to hold the mesh edges together.
  7. Knot the End: When you've stitched the entire damaged area, tie a secure knot on the inside of the shoe. Trim any excess thread.
  8. Optional: Apply Clear Adhesive: To reinforce the repair and prevent further damage, you can apply a small amount of clear adhesive on the inside of the shoe over the stitched area. Be careful not to use too much, as it can make the shoe uncomfortable to wear.
  9. Let it Dry: If you used adhesive, let it dry according to the manufacturer's instructions before wearing the shoes again.

Keep in mind that this repair may not make the mesh look brand new, but it should prevent the hole from getting bigger and make the shoes wearable again.
