Creaky, Squeaky Danskos! - page 2

Alright, I love my new oiled black Danskos, but seriously miss the silent patter of my so-unsupporting Crocs! Anyone have a trick for making those inky, slinky soles a little quieter for the night... Read More

    Yep -- have the same problem. And it bums me out to no end because my Danskos really fixed my foot pain problem. But I seriously cannot wear them at work, and definitely NEVER on night shift. Everyone knows I'm coming when I have them on and they just laugh at me -- (and I really don't need to give anyone anything else to laugh at me about! )

    So, I'm stuck wearing really good tennis shoes, and just wear my D's on my day off to "fix" my feet some more.

    Wish the manufacturer would fix this problem, or find a way to stop the squeak.

    I have white Landaus. They squeak even on carpeting. It drives me nuts!

    I put a strip of cloth tape over the bottom of the clogs. Problem solved. Did not hamper traction in the least.

    I might have to try that!

    I have white do you clean them? I have marks on the front...
    Try Armor All. Clean and shine in one step. You can carry the wipes in your glovebox or purse. For scratches or superficial tears in the leather use a permanent marker or paint marker for white.

    Ha, I'm at work and I googled "squeaky Danskos" and I found this thread!

    I have red patent leather Dansko clogs that squeak horribly. I work in L&D, and it's hard walking into a quiet labor room, with the patient doing hypnobirthing, only to have my shoes interrupt them.

    It's not the floor, because they squeak on carpet, as well as everywhere else outside the hospital. It's something internal in the shoe.

    I have a few coworkers that have the same problems with their Danskos, and they all said to just give it time. I've been wearing them almost daily since October, though, and the problem doesn't seem to be abating.

    I will try hand lotion and/or baby powder, as I've read suggested, and see if that doesn't solve the problem. But I wanted to comment because some people suggested it's the floors, and I know that at least in my case, it has nothing to do with the floor.

    This is just second hand info, but I was told that if your Danskos are squeaky, Dansko will replace them. This person said they got theirs replaced.

    i see this is kind of late getting in on the discussion. i am also plagued with the squeaky danskos. they are also the only thing that has solved my foot probs. i have two pair: oiled black that dont squeak at all. ever. also hurt the top of my foot/arch after long shifts. have shiny brown ones that squeak like no bodys business!!! its almost embarassing when your training or in clinical with a preceptor or otherwise quiet walkers. its definitely the shiny ones that do it and my brown ones are way more comfortable/feel more broken in. i MUST fig out a way to de-squeak. ill try the oil and baby powder technique and report back.

    Email dansko and let them know your issues. They should replace them for free, you just have to pay shipping there. I had a pair of the oil slicked ones that squeaked like nobody's business. The plastic heel liner was also cracked. I emailed them, sent them in, and got a new pair. They don't make the oil slicked ones anymore tho, so i got the grey prism ones I'm not sure if I was able to get a new pair because of the squeaking or the broken piece tho... All I had to pay was for the shipping there!

    I have the oily black ones too...everyone comments on them. I love them, but they do squeak. I am trying a new pair of Alegria Brilliant snake today. They do not squeak so far.

    try cleaning the soles- it could be something you walked in... like a wet puddle of sorbitol, cleaning solution, etc.... it happens to us in our OR all the time, one day fine, then the next day squeak squeak......we clean the soles then they are good for a while..... anyways, if your talking about like, an internal squeak-- that may be something different....
