Shoe goo is used for fixing lexan bodies or reinforcing them. It's noting like an epoxy!! Epoxy glue is strong but brittle and cracks on impact. Shoe goo is flexible yet strong and as the name suggests it's used for repairing shoes. The glue has a rubberizing compound making it flexible.

I think you can get it readily online... I remember reading somewhere that duratrax makes it? I always thought it was made for repairing shoes... Must've been a mistake...

You could prolly find it at a hardware store... it's a flexible, yet strong adhesive that you can use for anything...

yes it is used for repairing shoes, it came out years ago for that purpose, but any store like target will carry it. they now have all types of shoe goo out, all dry like a rubbery hard compound, similar to the soul of your shoe, which is what it was invinted for.

it also works very well when you are building foam combat wings and other foam airplane type stuff.

To answer the original question:
Perhaps one of the tapered tips that come with tubes of capped silicone bathtub caulk would fit the threads on ShooGoo (?)
