    It's raining here and my shoes squeak when I get inside. It's mostly the right foot. I don't understand it. The tread on both shoes are about the same so I don't get why the right one squeaks but the other doesn't.

    I even observed my stride thinking maybe I had some sort of Quasimodo walk going on or something. My walk seems normal. No pigeon toed walk. No favoring one side over the other. In all regards, my stride for my left is the same as my right.

    This is bothersome because I have a fairly long walk from the door to my desk and the office is pretty quiet. Makes me too self-concious.

    Any suggestions like roughing up the soles of my shoe or something?

    Whenever I go into a store (when it's raining) and my shoes squeak on their floor, instead of trying to stop it and being self conscious about what others are thinking, I purposely make them squeak really loud (and laugh). [​IMG] Sometimes I'll do a little squeaky dance.

    Sorry, Hunter, no help here either with the squeak.

    Maybe you should use the same reaction as with a loud fart - look around as though you are REALLY puzzled as to who could do such an uncouth thing.

    Failing that, do a Squeaky Dance - it might even make someone smile.

    Maybe I should change my name to Mark, because I always do the squeaky dance!
