How to fix a squeaky heel

If your shoe squeaks, something in the shoe will slip together. This usually happens when the cement added during the manufacturing process dries too quickly or is improperly glued. You can buy your own contact adhesive to the area of ​​the shoe that squeaks, which should remove the noise.

before fixing the squeaky heel, see if you can bring it back to the store. Squeaky heels are considered a defect and should be taken back easily if they are new.

Walk very slowly when wearing the shoe. If possible, identify the exact location of the squeak.

When you find the area of ​​the heel that squeaks, find the two parts of the shoe that are rubbing against each other.

Apply contact adhesive to one of the surfaces. Squeeze the two surfaces together and hold for a few minutes to allow the cement to dry.

Try the shoes again and go inside to avoid the squeak.


  • If you are unsure which part of the shoe is squeaking, you may want to take the shoes to a mechanic.
