I've never heard of this Shoe Goo stuff before, so I can't comment on
a direct comparison.
I've used a differently-branded Sugru alternative, though. It's not an
adhesive and it's not sticky. It's like Plasticine or other modelling
clay -- a smooth, non-tacky, very viscous colloidal gel, which can be
moulded and shaped. It only adheres to things by virtue of being
moulded onto and around them; if you need to, say, stick it to a flat
surface, you'd have to glue it on.
But when it sets, it goes hard - like a hard rubber. You can make a
small mark with a fingernail but this will eventually smooth out. It's
no more pliable than a piece of truck tyre when cured.
