    This started to scare me after i read all those replays and no one had an answer, and the wierd'ist thing is that its also my left foot, my left foot started hurting really bad the first week every step i took it hurt that one time i almost fell. Then the pain went away but just 2 or 3 days ago i just notice it started squeaking and it bothers me it feels weird its mostly by the hole bone that starts by my big toe and i just notice its also happens when i wiggle my toes up and down i feel pressure and like a muscle or vain/ligament pulling. really ppl what could this be????

    My story was the same. Squeak began left foot. Sounded sort of metallic. Soon included the right foot too. Happened even with shoes off. When I read some of the posts that said it turned out to be their belt, I tried it with belt undone and the squeak miraculously disappeared. It was my belt that was doing the squeaking!

    I have the problem with squeaky feet. Started about 3 weeks ago left foot, no pain. My right foot is starting. Thought it was my floors, but its as loud on tile floors. Does anyone have an answer>

    I have the same issue with a squeaky left foot and thought I would search the internet to see if there were any answers. I had a dirtbike accident about 6 months ago and injured the valve in a vein of my left leg. As a result of I have deep vein thrombosis where the blood goes into your leg but has a more difficult time going out due to having no valve in that vein. I was on blood thinners for 6 months and now I'm off of them but I have noticed that my left foot (same leg as my injury) now squeaks! I, too, thought it was my shoes that were squeaking or thought it was the floor but it is my foot! I'd be interested in learning why this happens!

    I started about 2 months ago, and it has progressed. Thought it was my floors. No its my feet. I have neuropathy in my toes. The sound is from the ball of both feet, especially the left foot. I am not a diabetic. For the pain in my feet I take Neuropathy Formula. It works great, still have the numbness, but no pain. Anyone out there have any ideas on squeaky feet.
    Thank you!

    I had a similar problem, noise coming from my shins when I walk. It is caused by injury to a muscle group, tendon, or ligament. The noise is the result of the injury rubbing against a bone, ligament, tendon or group of muscles it does not naturally touch. I have had this occur several times in my life, having been a runner when I was younger. If there is no pain associated with the noise you should try stretching and exercising the muscles the noise is coming from. If pain is present, it should be cared for first before exercise. R.I.C.E - rest, ice, compression, elevation.

    This thread did make me laugh a bit, I liked the WD-40 comment and the fact that people are freaking out over this squeaky foot epidemic.

    Anyway, in all seriousness I have this problem too. I also have orthotics like some of the other posters. I wonder if there is a connection there. In any case thankfully when I take my socks off it seems to go away or at least becomes less audible.

    I'm going to try thicker socks.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but wanted to chime in with the same solution some others here found.

    It was my belt!

    I sprained my left ankle about 8 months ago and was worried that the squeak was related to that injury. After the problem persisted through 3 pairs of shoes, I was worried it was me. Nope. Just a belt!

    Thanks internets!

    I removed my belt from my pants. the squeak went away. Awesome and ridiculous at the same time.

    Wow. I had the same thing. Always left step. It was my belt. What a relief. I was about to drink a quart of motor oil. Thanks to all for the replies

    Lol, I have had the shoe squeaking problem in the past and I moisturized my shoe... and it worked. Now I have had the same problem on multiple pairs of shoes, tried the moisturizing trick and was unsuccessful (literally put body lotion on the sole of the shoe). Then it started happening in my socks too and I tried the belt and sure enough it was the problem. Classic mixup.

    Me too! Left foot. It was my metal/swivel belt buckle!

    I realize I'm bumping an old thread but I need to chime in.

    I have been worried about this for some months. I had a series of bruses to my left ankle at the start of rugby season and I was worried there may be some unseen damage. No ongoing pain, but inconsistent squeaking of my left foot.

    It was my belt.

    I purchased a reversable black/brown belt at the same time the squeaking started. After some experimentation I have concluded it was the swivel on the belt buckle.

    Knowing that other people have had the same problem and (comically) assumed it was their foot makes me feel closer to humanity as a whole.

    I thought I was the only one with this squeaky left foot. I thought I was crazy, it could not be my left foot. I will try the belt thing tomorrow.

    I was getting worried because of my left foot squeaking so loud so much that I checked the internet and found this thread... I feel as silly as some of the others but it was my belt. I have to thank you guys because now I am "cured" :)

    Haha! Too funny. I was already analyzing all the possible medical causes for the squeaking, only to find out that it was a freaking BELT! Haha. Garterized is the way to go now! Haha.

    OMG !! I went through the small thing! Thought it was my new shoes. Then i still had the squeak in socks! I was going to schedule an appointment with orthopedic surgeon. Then I searched and found this blog. Sure enough, it was the reversible swivel belt buckle I purchased from Armani exchange store! LOL!! You guys saved me a Dr bill. :)
