    Sorry I meant wear everything as usual but without a tie. I'm sure nobody here is a Hermes "gentleman".

    My buttero sneaks have begun to squeak like crazy when I walk. Is this common?

    Squeaky sneakers is a pretty common problem. Can you spot where the friction (squeak) is coming from? It is often due to unusual moisture where two parts naturally rub when you walk. Often happens if the shoes got wet. You can try to dry them completely or use something to help absorb that extra moisture, e.g. talc / baby powder. Apply the powder under the insoles and throughout the inside of the shoes. Let them rest and try again.

    They seem to squeak at the ball of the foot area during a stride. It could very well be moisture as I am in sweaty Cambodia. I thought maybe the issue could be the shock absorber thing under the leather insole. It could be moisture like you said. I will give them a break. Thanks for the info.

    Squeeking is probably because of moisture in the seams. Spray the seams with WD-40 - will work like a charm.

    Different spot. I sold those G&G's didn't fit me well.

    it's not on the seams. I actually feel it under my feet. It cold be the insole sliding around. Not sure.

    Might have a false recollection but think I read/heard something about oil and glue not mixing well, the former dissolving the latter. (where's Heisenberg when you need him? ...)
    And all shoes have some glued parts.

    WD-40 is marketed, in part, as an adhesive remover.

    i've never had any issue with it destroying the glue, but you use a very small amount

    It's not extremely visible in the picture, but for the sake of posterity (and by request) I thought I might as well post this in here because I'm wearing an Esemplare felted wool sweater from NMWA.

    (This was yesterday, when the weather was dramatically different)
