Shoe-Goo -- I'd vote -- hands down. Shoe-goo is flexible, *and* will actually wear away like your original sole material should you use it as a filler instead of a glue.

Gorilla Glue will expand when drying (likely deforming your shoe, possibly to a uncomfortable amount) *and* will dry rigid (so if the "fix" is flexed, the Gorilla Glue will crack.

So, fer me-own bad self, I'd go with Shoe-Goo for shoes (filler or glue), and Gorilla Glue for Lay-Key tips, rocking chairs, Grandma's clock, automobile accessories, etc....

So would you recommend GG over Shoe Goo for re-adhering the tread of my sandals back to the next layer?  Had a blowout.

The problem with Gorilla Glue is it won't come off once it's on.
