Thread: Cure for Squeaky Boots

    Cure for Squeaky Boots

    Anybody have a cure for squeaky boots? I have been using Le Chameau Mouflon Plus boots for 2 - 3 years quite happily but they are now starting to squeak badly. I have not changed the type of dubbin I am using. The squeak is coming from the tongue rubbing against the leather uppers.

    I was always told squeaky boots were not paid for,

    try extra dubbin?

    take the laces off and coat them in dubbin.

    I had the same and someone told me to bee's wax the laces, which I did.
    They must have hated me, cos I've now got really waxy laces that won't tighten AND squeaky boots!
    They are ok for dog walking but that's about it!

    Make sure they are really dry and spray them with WD40, really this is what did it for me. Then you can dubbin after a couple of days.

    Vaseline, truely it works!

    I hate Le Chameau Mouflons And Le Chameau as a firm in general Very poor service, on their very poorly made boots

    I found that throwing them in the bin helped sort out my squeaky mouflons and then buying a decent pair .

    I may resort to throwing them in the bin yet but will try some of these other suggestions first. Many thanks for the tips.

    boil your laces for a couple of minutes with plenty of soap, that'll put em back in clean condition, when dry rub the last couple of inches of lace with a candle.
