My starboard Fugawee artillery driver boot has developed a creak when I walk. Anyone know a way to fix it?

Frenchie,

Are you sure it ain't arther-itis in yer foot makin' all that noise?

Use the sweet pee mixture.

Pee in the boot, leave it overnight, empty out next day wash with water and wear..its an old British army trick although i've never tried it.

Basically sweaks/creaks occur becase of movement between innersole, shank, and outersole. Stick some clinch nails or wood pegs in the arch area to stop the movement.

Ain't no arther-itis in neither foot, and I'll give you some arther-itis, you smart-alek!:p

Now that sounds like something that might actually work. I have a couple hobnails here, might just give it a try. Thanks!
