My new sandals squeak when I walk. This happens even when everything is dry. What can I do to get rid of the squeak?

I've heard that if you put some baby powder or WD-40 on the squeaky part, that will fix it.

LoL thanks, I'll try this.

I;ve been using hand sanitizer instead. Never thought about this...

The hand sanitizer smells pleasant, and it fixes the problem for a short while. But soon enough it dries up quickly and starts squeaking again Smh! ... But I'm going out to buy baby powder now :)

Squeaky sandals ... mine actually sounded like little kids blowing air into their palms or arms to make a mock ... well, you know. I couldn't pull up the sole (from sandals?), I wasn't going to slather vaseline on them and be sliding around, I didn't want to poke holes in brand new sandals or pour glue in them.


I just figured out that a half a tissue folded and placed discretely between my arch and the sole was all I needed. Eventually I didn't even need the tissue.

OMG it worked. I took a paper towel folded it long way and put it inside my shoe making sure it touched under the ball of my foot and Arch my shoes don't squeak anymore

Thank you, it worked immediately on my new sandals! As a safeguard to prevent the tissue from moving off the position I want it to be, I taped it down on the sandal.

Put a piece of moleskin in the heel section. Just worked for my sister in law.

Hello you can get rid of this by using the sandals alot cause the same thing happened to me they were squeaking for over 5 days but then it started to stop.I really hope this does help your problem.

Try sprinkling baby powder under the inner sole, or just on the insid edges.
