Stop Squeaky Tennis Shoes with WD-40

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.

WD-40 really works. I had a squeaky New Balance 608, left shoe, and a small amount of WD-40 sprayed on insole did the trick.

WD 40 is pure magic, my shoes were a month old and I was so close to buying new ones but then I tried this trick and it worked immediately. WD 40 is Gods liquid tool of choice
