I've had several pairs of these boots. Some squeak some don't.
Sometimes it's either one or the other, but usually never both...so it seemed.

Great boots nonetheless.

I found that mines squeak at the thingy on the ankle. U can try adding lubricant of choice to reduce squeaks

It is the ankle stabilizer thingy. It will keep your foot from turning an unnatural angle. And it squeeks.

My Sidi Vertigo airs do it on one boot, but not the other.

Oh well. If you crash they will do their job. Better to have a squeaky boot than an ankle that squeaks when you walk. LOL. I know what you are talking about though and it is pretty annoying.

I spray a little lube in the ankle joints every few months. No problem with squeeks at all anymore unless I get lazy.
