I tried the freezing approach. Waiting for the sole to resolidify after the Goof Off partial softened/melted it.

Goof off doesn't like rubbers or some plastics. My sound system controller had some duct tape on it and I put some goof off on a cotton ball and started to rub it off...well the plastic started to come with it now the bottom of the controller is all rough.

Try rubbing alcohol...or take a putty knife and start prying.
Try hairspray, too.

My grandma always used warm vinegar to get gum off of clothing & purses. It always worked.
