I had my beloved pair of Prospector boots resoled not too long ago, and while the people at the local shoe-repair place did a pretty good job of it, there’s one problem. When I walk around the tiled hallways at my workplace, they squeak. Loudly. Embarassingly so. It seems to be worst when they’re damp, but not wet, and the squeaking doesn’t happen when they’re dry. It also seems to be a function of the type of tile — the squeaking doesn’t occur on certain floors of the building, but unfortunately the floor I work on has the squeaky tile in its hallways.
How can I keep this from happening? Is there some kind of compound that can be applied to the soles to stop the squeaking? Or should I resign myself to having everyone up & down the hallway know that I’m coming?
(And to forestall the obvious comment: I suppose that I could bring in an extra pair of shoes and wear them indoors instead of the aforementioned boots, but it doesn’t really bother me enough to justify the extra hassle…)
