I have done pretty well with Barge Adhesive over the
years. Barge is a contact cement used in the Shoe
industry. If possible, I often wrap some fabric and
glue around the joint as a reinforcement. I haven't
tried industrial grade hot glue, but I am pretty sure
it will at least partially melt your foam.
