Advice needed

Recommended Posts

I put a half sole and heel on a pair leather shoes, recently, and the customer has brought them back saying they're now squeaking when he walks in them.

I'm very certain it's not the rubber as I've been using these soles for years and never had this issue.

Any advice on what could be causing it and how to rectify it would me much appreciated.

most likely to be a broken shank & was probably already there, but by stiffening everything up its showing up. Check you're heel is balanced correctly too, it could be the flex as his weight flattens out the heel block each step. rather than having to redo the whole lot, run a row of nails each side of the shank as close to the heel block as possible and down to your sole along his original waist sole it might tighten it up enough to stop the squeak
