My KURU Shoes Squeak, What Can I Do?
The most common cause of squeaking is moisture build-up. Our insoles are designed with moisture-wicking technology for maximum comfort, but sometimes excess moisture can accumulate. These tips can reduce squeaking:
- Dry Your Insoles Between Wears - Remove your insoles from your shoes and air dry them between uses. You can also apply a light layer of talcum powder to the bottom of your shoes to help absorb moisture.
- Re-align the Insole - Sometimes the insole may slip up and to one side of the footbed. Realign the insole, making sure it is centered over the top of the midsole footbed.
- Replacement Insoles - We're also happy to send you a free pair of fresh insoles! In most cases, a new pair of insoles will make the squeaking go away.
If the squeaking persists, your shoes may have a manufacturer's defect. If air drying or replacement insoles don’t solve the problem, we suggest submitting a warranty request or reaching out to our KURU Gurus for help.
