Remove Tarmac from shoe sole?

16
Found 15th Aug 2012
Strange one but some construction work going on at my house and have stepped in some tarmac that hadn't dried completely.

Only on the soles of my shoes but it's solid and dried now.

Shoe soles are rubber (Deck Shoes).

Any ideas on how to remove without ruining the soles? (£85 pair of Sperry Topsiders that I would like to keep!)

Maybe glue and tar remover? Just not sure if it would make the rubber tacky!? (_;)

should have bought timberland or sebagos.
Should have had gypsies do the work.
Tried a hammer?
They deserve to be put in the bin.

Just googled them and don't understand why anyone would buy such a horrible piece of footwear - Especially for £85

Sorry that we do not share the same taste in clothing but deck shoes are a classic.

Can't be wearing Nike air max brah, just not my style.
White spirit or Tcut if the soles are flat.
wd40 best bet
