I have had similar problems with footwear in storage.

But not my Corcorans nor my jungle boots.

I received a nice set of not to be named insulated hunting boots for xmas years ago. Put them away until next season in the box they came in. Opened them up next fall and the soles has de-laminated and become a gelatinous mess.

When we lived in the Florida Keys, I would hang my old Sperry top-siders in the workshop. no sun nor chemical gases, but the soles would crumble within 8-10 months, like dried out play doh? I could wear the top-siders for a year with no problems, they held up well in the salt water, but stop wearing them and they died.
