One of the most annoying thing you can encounter with your kicks is when it starts to squeak like an excited mouse every time you take a step. It's not a fun situation to be in if you are walking down a quiet hallway. So, how do you fix this? The first thing you need to do is figure out where the problematic area. Squeaky shoes can be caused by several factors: - Materials in the shoes are rubbing together. - Moisture trapped in the shoes. - Dryness due to the material (leather). - Loose heels. - Wear and tear. - Manufacturing mistakes. [The Solution] Baby Powder - If the inside of the shoe squeaks, lift the insoles and sprinkle powder along the inner seam. If your insoles are non-removable, rub the powder into the edge of your shoe base. - Powder the tongue of the shoe under the laces if the tongue squeaks. - If the base of the shoe squeaks, there are probably air cushions. Massage the powder into the base at the seam or air bubble Leather Conditioner - If you are using leather shoes, keep them lubricated by rubbing in a leather conditioner and buffing with a dry cloth. Suede Conditioner - Same method as leather shoes but for suede materials. WD40 or Silicone Spray Spray one of these lubricants onto a cotton swab or cotton ball. Rub it into the outside seam of the shoe, working along the squeaky area or its entire outline Notes: Do not use oil-based materials on suede, or the fuzzy nap could be destroyed.

Great tips, also sometimes it's not always the shoe problem. I realized certain types of floor also makes your shoes squeaky.
