I used E6000 on my shoes, but I covered the whole shoe (nearly).  Just make sure the syringe glue you choose dries clear.

The E6000 took about 5 minutes to set and about an hour or so to be permanent.  It went realy fast.

Since I covered my whole shoe, I just squeezed some out of the tube and spread it with a wood skewer stick directly on the shoe.  I sort of detailed it here: http://craftywedding.wordpress.com/2013/07/22/shoes-strass-pearls/

You could squeeze the glue directly from the tube into an empty syringe.  But the glue sets up fast and I’m not sure if a store bought empty syringe would keep it air tight enough to prevent it from setting.  Some glues come with a precision tip, so maybe that would work for you as well.

I highly recommend using a gem setter.  They are only a dollar or two and really speed up the process.

I used the e6000 glue and covered my entire shoe. I loved the way it turned out! I have not tried to use the syringe, but I loved the strength of the e6000 glue. Good luck!

I’ve also thought about blinged out wedding shoes.  I would suggest going through a bunch of youtube videos.  The shoes that came out looking really nice all used the E660 glue.  There are a few that show you how to use the syringe and also tell you approximately how much stones they used and where they purchased them. You can also try India on Instagram @shining_soles.
