I have used a weatherstrip adhesive from an auto parts store on auto weatherstrip.

Sticks like glue.

You'll have to clean off accumulated dirt & grit well (try Goof-Off available @ Home Depot), then try Ti-Grrrip! shoe adhesive. I'm pretty sure it will stick anything to anything. You'll have to call some running shoe stores to find it locally but it apparently is great for re-treading the bottoms of running shoes which is a reasonable testament to its ability to stick under adverse conditions of repeated grinding.
I carry a tube in the coach in case of emergency where I need to glue my mouth shut; occasionally disharmony in close quarters mandates such drastic action, and I need a really fast acting, strong adhesive.

Along the same line Mike is taking, try Shoe Goo. It is available at most hobby stores as it is used to repair models.
Origionaly for shoe repair the stuff will stick to anything and is extremely strong

I had to reglue one of the rubber strips on one of my Smart Beds and had good luck with a tube of silicon adhesive from the local ACE hardware store. Stuck quickly and has remained in place for 6 months so far. Do make sure you clean the grit and grime first if any.
