Double Squeak!

Double Squeak!

L’autre jour, j’ai porté des chaussures qui ont « couiné » toute la journée !
 
Le genre de petit truc qu’on n’est pas sûr que quelqu’un (ou tout le monde) entende … Ou est-ce que je fais une fixette ? Moi, ça me fait penser à ces vieux dessins animés où l’un des personnages essaie de passer inaperçu mais se fait remarquer et court droit à la catastrophe. Dans une ville comme New York, on aurait tendance à penser que ce n’est pas si grave que ça de couiner… sur Broadway, dans tel resto ou Starbucks…
 
Mais avec la Fashion Week et tous ces défilés, shootings, présentations, dîners (car bien sûr, il y a 1 000 événements par jour !), difficile de ne pas se sentir parano quand on couine un peu partout. Du coup, je voulais savoir : vous avez solutions pour les chaussures qui couinent ? ?!

  • Huile de lin !

  • I heard somewhere about putting vaseline over night!

  • I have a pair of shoes that make the most annoying noise but I love them so I block it out

  • It depends where the squeak is coming from, but many times mine squeak because of my toenail against the top of the shoe, in which case, moleskin stuck to the inside top of the shoe should solve the problem. I’ve never had any luck with the lotion or baby powder inside the shoes methods, but those are some internet standard remedies.

  • Putting hand lotion on squeaky leather shoes works wonders! I was apprehensive at first to try it, but it really does work and the look of the leather seems unaffected.

  • …et zwiiip ;-)

  • Powder, works every time. Dont overdo it otherwise you will be emiitting white clouds!!

  • Loads and loads and loads of dust and dirt on their soles. But, since you’re trotting all over NY and they still squeaked, God be with you :-)

  • I’ve had two squeaky pairs and the only thing that worked (I tried lotion, didn’t help) is to rip out the insole and replace it entirely. I use insoles by Superfeet (the green ones) and they work wonderfully.

  • Le talc est une solution! A mettre en dessous de la semelle et sur les bords à l’interieur. ( ça marche trés bien pour les baskets et les derbies mais pourquoi pas pour les escarpins!)

  • I hate when that happens, it’s happened more often than I like to admit! I will bookmark this future use because there are great suggestions in the comments!

  • One of my favourite pairs of shoes squeaks!! I don’t have any remedies…it’s kind of annoying but I love the shoes too much to let the squeak stop me from wearing them!

  • Yes I have a solution- put some kind of powder in your shoes, like talcum powder, cornflour, etc., focusing on the squaky areas. For me, it’s normally around the heel or under the ball of the foot. The squeaking is from pockets of moisture between your foot and the insole, or the insole and the rest of the shoe, and the powder should absorb any of this and also lubricate the surfaces :) I do this with all my shoes!

  • hmm, moi, j’aime ça… j’ai une paire qui pousse un petit couinement à chaque fois qu’ils se chargent de mon poids et, je sais pas… j’aime ça pour de vrai, ça s’ajoute au bruit des talons qui heurtent le sol, c’est comme pour la musique : un instrument seul a l’air cru, mais plusieurs instruments ensemble, c’est de la musique :) ça m’aide à marcher plus droite, plus fière et plus rythmée.

  • The same remedy as pilly fabric, return them immediately.
