    Anybody else have Squeaking problems with these?

    I haven't worn my Pair since last Month because both Shoes developed this annoying Squeaking Sound in the Forefoot. I've tried the Babypowder Trick multiple times with no luck (also this Sound happens with or without Insoles so i don't think this is the Solution). It only happens when i put my Foot in them and put my Weight on the Forefoot (i. E. normal Walking), when i'm not wearing them i can Flex them how i want the Sound will not occure so i don't think its any of the Leather Rubbing together, also nothing changes whether i step on Carpet, Concrete or Other Floors so it shouldn't be anything about the Outsole either.

    I'm honestly kind of lost at what to try next:smh: I can't really Wear em like that since the Sound is REALLY loud.
    Anybody got any Ideas?

    My left foot squeaks. No noise though.

    The baby powder trick always works for me

    If you eat some baby powder itll come out through your sweat, so when your feet sweat itll evenly disperse the baby powder to where it needs to go inside your shoes to stop the squeak.

    Oops i meant Technique:rofl:
    but it's where you take out the Insole and put some Baby Powder inside the Shoe, to remove any Moisture stuck between the two which can cause Squeaking.
    No Idea why it isn't working in my Case though.

    Not in this model, but I've had the same issue in others where baby powder didn't work. I carefully sprayed lithium greace which solved the problem.

    I had the same issue and the baby powder trick seemed to have worked so far, wore them 2-3 times with no squeak

    I also removed the two pieces of tape from under the insole but idk if that contributes anything

    I feel like these fit TTS, whereas the 2011's fit .5 big imo.

    Has enough time passed for us to be honest and admit that pretty much every 3 after these had way better leather? I’ve seen the Katrina, Pure Money, and Tinker and those have thick genuine leather that’s crazy soft. I’m not even sure these are genuine leather even though they’re not stiff like the TB

    I tend to agree. I’ve worn mine once and really only the collar padding seems to be a notable difference from the ‘11 retro, IMO. Well, I guess the leather is better but not much.

    BC3s and Katrinas were inconsistent with the leather. I went through 6 pairs of 2018 BC3s and most of them had one side with soft tumbled leather and the other shoe was hard leather. One pair I got from SNKRS had super soft tumbled leather. I've had 2 pairs of Free Throw Line 3s and both of those had super soft leather. The Pure White Jordan 3s I saw at the store looked like great leather, but not as soft as the best pair of BC3s I have. I can't generalize that the BC3 has inferior upper quality than all the others. I don't think it's true from my experience.

    I’m not just talking about softness. The Cements literally have a different grain of leather lol. They were getting hyped up like crazy. When I compared them to my 2006 Fire Red and 2014 Black Motorsport, they felt and looked synthetic. I’m not saying they’re the worst 3 ever, but they were gassed heavily.

    I keep seeing 2001s or whatever pop up. I might end up doing it. I hate myself for not pouncing on that DS pair for 260 a week ago
