The Easy Hack to Keep Your Shoes From Squeaking

Kat Collings

We love shoes, that's a given. But as with every great love affair, there are sometimes problems that occur. Whether that's because they're a tad uncomfortable (although we've given you our list of the most comfortable heels around) or just not fitted correctly, there are plenty of issues that a bad shoe can bring up. But there's one other problem that we haven't yet discussed and that is the squeaky shoe.

Sure, it might be fairly innocuous, but it's no less annoying. So what's causing the irksome noise? It's actually created by sections of the shoe rubbing against each other. To fix the issue, simply lift the inner sole of the shoe and sprinkle baby powder (We like Johnson's Baby Powder, $4, a true classic!) underneath. If the sole is not removable, sprinkle the powder at the edges of the inner sole. The baby powder makes the seams of the shoe slightly more slippery, so they can rub against each other more smoothly sans any sound.

Now that you know you'll never suffer from squeaking shoes again, why not treat yourself to a new pair? Shop our picks below.
