Loudest shoe in terms of squeaking on court?

Just a light-hearted post, wanted to see what was the loudest shoe. I'd say in my experience, anything New Balance or Asics Court FF 2 and GR8 have been the loudest I've worn. The Ultrashot 2 was a close second.

my hypercourt supremes are pretty loud despite having several hours on them. i think most of the TW playtesters expressed preference for quieter shoes, but tbh i like loud shoes, they give me feedback on how my feet are moving. diadora 4 AG were also pretty loud, but got quieter as they wore down

I thought that it is just new soles that are grippy that make shoes squeak more. Are there some other design features that might impact squeaking?

I mean that is true but shoes like GR8 are like screeching on court while a shoe like Ubersonic 3 doesn’t make a noise.

Mizuno Exceed Wave 4s are very loud and squeaky.
Oh, goody, since I just bought a pair this week & plan to play in them this weekend.

(I'm always explaining to new players "if you're not squeaking you're not doing footwork ...")

Although discontinued… Nike Air Zoom Prestige. One of my hitting partners has them and they squeak since day one quite loudly

Well,

I just wore my new pair of ASICS Solution Speed FF2 on court for the first time tonight and they were more vocal than a Siamese cat, so add those to the list.
