Why are my shoes squeaking?
We can understand how a squeaky shoe could distract from a great run.
In most cases, the cause of squeaky shoes is due to air and/or moisture trapped under the insoles (or orthotics) within your shoes. First, we recommend removing the insoles and taking a few steps. If there is no squeak, it is most likely due to contact between the insole and the shoe itself. The good news is we have a simple solution for this!
To alleviate this, we recommend putting removing the insoles after each wear to allow both the insoles and the shoes to dry from any sweat or water build-up. If you still experience squeaking, then adding a bit of talcum powder to the insoles can be a great solution. Painters or Masking tape (with the smooth side facing up) can also help! Taping the bottom of your insole or orthotic creates a smooth surface and decreases any friction that occurs while you walk or run.
