How to Stop Sneakers from Squeaking – We’ve all already known that: we are extremely proud to wear our new stylish shoes, but we realize with horror in the hallway (silent of course) that leads us to work that our shoes squeak.

How to Stop Sneakers from Squeaking

What’s needed :

  • Talc
  • WD-40 (penetrating oil to remove water and prevent corrosion in electrical circuits)

Both techniques:

With talc (classic method but not always enough)

  1. Identify the source of the noise. Is it the friction of the laces? Or does it come from the sole of the foot (and therefore possibly the sole)?
  2. Remove the sole before applying if necessary. Apply talcum in the problem area.
  3. Leave a few minutes before putting everything back in place.
  4. Test! If the noise is gone, it’s great! Otherwise, test the method below.

With the WD-40 (Unparalleled and surprising)

  1. Identify the source of the noise. Is it the friction of the laces? Or does it come from the sole of the foot (and therefore possibly the sole)?
  2. Remove the sole before applying if necessary. Spray a little oil in the shoe where you think the noise is created.
  3. Leave for 5 minutes before putting everything back in place. The noise is gone!
