Step 1: Wipe Your Feet on a Rug

rather obvious, but nonetheless effective. Rugs are found in front of many doors, so this should be the easiest way to quiet your shoes.

Step 2: Change the Way You Walk

this is a more complex way of silencing your shoes, and involves placing all your weight on your heel, rather than on the middle/front of your shoe. This will minimize sliding, which causes the shoe to squeak.

Step 3: Don't Drag Your Feet

Dragging your feet will cause the sole of your shoe to rub against the ground, and will cause it to squeak when it is wet.

    Is this suddenly a site full of obvious statements? Here's one... To minimize slipping on ice, don't walk anywhere that there may be ice. Oh, I've got a better one... If you want to see yourself, but you don't have one of those newfangled smart phones, try a mirror!

     No matter what situation, i used to try to walk quietly without sound because i admit i like to spy. now i naturally walk quietly. i often walk without sound during school to surprise people.

    I walk quietly in general. Wet shoes and all. People are always getting freaked out from not noticing any sounds even when I dont mean to creep up on them.

    I usually wipe my feet pretty good, then purposely slide my feet on the floor until the squeak stops. Nice tips!
