Some of my boots squeak terribly at auto parts shops. Seems like they all use the same floor finish that interacts in a squeaky way with my soles. And it's just auto parts shops. No squeaks at the grocery store, or at work.

For squeaks inside the boots (as in, they squeak when walking across carpet) put some foot powder or talc in the boots. With time, and another sprinkle each time you put them on, the powder will hopefully get to the squeaking areas and stop the noise. It's not a permanent fix, though. Go a couple wearings without re-powdering, and they'll resume squeaking.
