how do you make rubber sole boots stop squeaking?
    #1963878 - 09/29/03 09:32 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I bought a new pair of boots the other day because the old ones were squeaking too much for me. On the third day of owning the new ones, the right has developed a terrible squeak! I've tried WD-40 spray and it doesn't seem to do any good. Any suggestions?

When I worked in construction, and we had to put up a galvanized ( steel ) roof we alway's put bleach on a rag, then wiped them on the bottom of our boot's. This melt's the rubber and it stick's onto the steel. It also stop's the squeaking.

I just tried both of these ways to fix the squeak, but neither made any difference! :frown:

Any other suggestions, or am I doing something wrong?

You're goin' about it all wrong  :shake: Don't worry so much about ridding yourself of the squeak, work on options to accent the squeak and make it enjoyable  :wink: Just one idea...go to the flea market and find one of those wind up musical monkees, take his cymbals and put them on the left boot  :laugh: Then you'll be makin' beautiful music with every stride!! It'll be great and you'll be all dancin' down the street playin' tunes, shufflin' and jammin' along, yeah, feelin' good, people stoppin' on the street all pointin' at ya' talking about "Dig this dude and his musical shoes, he's the greatest :thumbup:!!" and..............whoah  :wtf: Sorry, I got a little carried away...don't really have any good ideas for gettin' rid of squeks  :smirk:
