Vapor 9s squeaking?
Hey guys i have a pair of atomic red vapor 9's and whenever i walk the front mesh always makes a squeaking noise. Anyone else had this problem?
How do you fix it?

Yep, sure did. It happens when the internal layers of the sole aren't flush against each other and they can rub/slide on each other once air/moisture gets in there. It makes no difference to performance.

Make sure you always remove the in-soles from the shoes after you wear them each time. V9s seem to soak a lot of moisture into the soles when you wear them and that's why they'll squeak more after tennis.

I had a pair replaced by Nike because they squeaked fyi. They agreed that shoes that sound like ducks quacking was not ideal and a manufacturing flaw - which have a guarantee for regardless of where you bought them.

My current batch of Vapor 9's (purple flame pack and blue/silver) aren't doing it.

But all of my Vapor 8 did.

I've never had any squeaking issues with my v9s, fortunately. I've had issues with other brands but not these.

I explained one way to mitigate it above... always take the insoles out after use and allow them to dry completely. When sweat has been forced into the soles it's not going to go away unless you dry them. My first pair that did it Nike replaced for the reasons it was a manufacturing fault, not a warranty/wear issue. Nike will replace any shoe they make for manufacturing fault reasons regardless of whether you have a receipt for them.

The second pair of mine only do it after I've used them a couple of days in a row without enough time to dry them fully.

I have had luck with some shoes by removing the insoles and sprinkling baby power inside.

Do as what was mentioned in a previous post, return them to Nike.
