How to stop a tennis shoe (sneaker) from squeaking:

Step 1: remove the insole from the shoe.

Step 2: spray lubricant (WD-40) on the problem area.

Step 3: replace the insole.

Source: Trial and Error! I tried other lubricants, but WD-40 worked perfectly and stopped the squeak immediately.

I have a pair of Nike Air 1's. One pair has a squeaky problem under the sole. I have no idea how to fix it. Every time I step, it makes a squeaky noise, and it is not the soles either. Any solutions please?

Apply a liberal application of saddle soap-takes the creak out of anything leather. Follow the directions on the tin.

How can you prevent shoes from squeaking?

By Cindy S.

I believe for most squeaky shoes if you remove the inner sole and sprinkle powder or cornstarch on the floor of the shoes and then replace the inner sole it can take away the squeak. Also sometime when you aren't planning on wearing the shoes rub lotion or linseed oil on the sole of the shoe. Please let set and absorb for a number of hours, also WATCH your step when you do wear them for the first time as it can make them a bit more slippery.

I have a full foot (bottom) plastic brace in a leather shoe that squeaks. I have tried baby powder which does not work. Any other ideas?

Judy, you could tried dusting your brace w/either cornstarch or baby powder. Have you discussed the problem w/those who made it for you? I have an artificial leg that sometimes squeaks. Very annoying at times I know.

I bought a pair of rubber (plastic?) flip-flops from Target that I just love, but they squeak worse than any shoes I have ever owned. You can't put powder or Vaseline on flip-flops; it'll end up everywhere! Is there anything I can do?

Where do they squeak? On the thong part? Maybe you could put a drop of mineral oil in that spot or Skin So Soft from Avon or some other bath oil. Maybe WD40 would work too. Also consider wiping the shoe with a dryer sheet.

I bought a pair of shoes a month ago and I am so in love with them. Then, one day they started squeaking like mad. I don't know if this has had anything to do with the fact that I used them in the rain?

The shoes are made out of leather all over, however, the soles are made of rubber and the inside sole is sewn or stuck down and is made out of soft cloth. So I didn't know if I should use lotion inside? I tried powder, it didn't work. I tried blow drying them inside with a blow dryer and ruined my blowdryer.

I am at wits end. I love this pair of shoes. What should I do? I have tested and found out that the squeaking sound is at the ball of my foot. Just as you bend your foot to lift it up for your next step.

Please help me!

My ex husband sold shoes and he said that when a shoe squeaks it means that the steel shank is broken. It's a piece of metal that runs from the heel to the ball of the foot down the center of the shoe. He also said that it can't be fixed, although I've seen on this site where baby powder can fix it. However, I don't have any idea where exactly you'd put the baby powder! Makes no sense to me, but search Thriftyfun and see what you find.

Sorry about your shoes. I hate it when that happens! (11/02/2010)

Fix a Squeaky Shoe

I have a pair of Clark's low boots that started squeaking a year ago after several years of use. I decided to try wearing them today, and they still squeaked! So I Googled, and then took the advice of the archives herein, and lo-and-behold, after applying talcum powder to the bottom of the insole. No more squeak! Thanks to you all! (11/16/2010)

They are likely defective. My father and I both bought Keen Austins and they squeak in the heel. The sound remains even with the insole removed, so it's clearly within the shoe, likely due to poor attachment of the large rubber sole to the leather uppers. You can return them if within a year of purchase. Personally, I will never buy Keens again. (12/01/2010)
