How To Fix Squeaky Shoes
Squeaky shoes can be irritating and annoying to say the least and knowing how to fix squeaky shoes can be such a relief. Usually, when shoes make a squeaky sound it is because material is rubbing against each other somewhere in the shoes--when you place your foot down and pressure is applied, the noise occurs. The rubbing is caused by a manufacture error. There are a few different things you can try to fix your squeaky shoes.
To fix squeaky shoes, you need:
- Baby powder
- Dryer or towel
- Use baby powder. Take foot powder and poor it all over your shoes. Baby powder can help reduce the friction of the shoe, therefore reducing the squeaking. After letting the shoes sit in powder for a while, wipe the shoes up and try them on and see if the squeaking has stopped.
- Check the heel of the shoe. The heel of the shoe may have gotten detached from the rest of the shoe. If you have noticed that the heel of your shoe has become detached, you can fix this problem with glue. Use shoe glue to reattach and secure the heel back into place. Make sure the glue dries completely before testing out the shoe to see if the squeaking has stopped.
- Let the shoes dry if they have gotten wet. Sometimes squeaking occur after your shoes have gotten wet. Depending on the shoe, you might be able to place it in the dryer or place a paper or towel in the inside of the shoe to soak the moister out of the shoe.
- The soles may need to be roughed up. If your shoes are fairly new, the soles may just need to be worn to get rid of the squeaky sound. Rub sandpaper over the soles until they look worn. Walk around in the shoes to see if the squeaky sound has gone away.
