Got myself a new pair of Weinbrenner shoes with rubber soles. Love them. There is one small problem though.

They squeak on hard surface and on the tiles in office. I cant sneak around anymore! Hope the squeaking subsides in a couple of days or I am buying new ones!

Googling suggests using hand lotion. Eeecky! Is this really a problem or should I wait?

Its handy when the boss is looking for you. You hear him coming and go all ninja. Done it a few times, hence why I wear skaties :P Silent. Plus its good when you wanna share the shite outta a workmate. Cheap laughs, although everybody enjoys it so +1

When we were in China adopting our daughter, there was a huge fad of buying squeaky shoes for toddlers. These are shoes with devices in them that make them squeak on each step. The idea is that the kids love the noise, and it encourages them to walk.
