I know that some Walsh trainers can be resoled, as can many with a vibram sole

If the sole is integrated into the upper by design I’d have thought it would be very difficult if not nigh on impossible. The other issue is cost - cheaper trainers/sneakers might not be worth doing. There must be some sort of tip point where the design/construction is viable to include replacing sole units
I don't swim. I can swim. I just don't have much cause to do so in the normal run of things.

You'd be surprised, i used to have a penchant for 70's era Nike runners which became increasingly difficult to source from the early 90's so folks used to buy 70's era running spikes... Waffles, Omega Flame's ect which were cheap and more often than not hardly worn, then you could have the sole unit replaced with a new foam mid and the rubber sole from a newer shoe or better still the og sole from a battered vintage pair.
This was long before the never ending repro-ing of the late 90's (onwards) from a time when if you saw a pair of fat swoosh Waffles it meant actual vintage.
I'll endorse anything for cash

Are there any 'sneakers' that are resoleable? The Clinch Mast come to mind, maybe, but they're really narrow and above what I'd like to spend. Does anything similar exist? The only other similar ones I have seen were the Brother Bridge Henry model, all leather.

I've used Shoe Goo, too, but not on sneakers. I wear very ordinary boat or deck-type sneakers all the time, like Bass or Sperry. But the top generally wears out before the sole. I use Shoe Goo on a few pairs of boots to keep them from wearing down in a few spots, which they otherwise always do. Funny how one boot will wear differently than the other one.
