Has anybody else had this problem of their '09 Space Jams squeaking? After about the 3rd wear they began to squeak and I was suggested the "baby powder" technique but it didn't work. I don't know if I should sell them as is or send them back to Nike for an inspection with a possible credit?

P.S. Sorry if this has been posted already

My best friend's pair squeaks too and he only wore them 3-5 times so far.  Yea, it kinda sucks, and it'd bother me too if it happened to my pair, but as long as they're not scuffed up or anything it's alright.  That's the way I see it at least.

But would that actually work?  Could you actually send a pair back after wearing them a few times and after nearly a year since their release and get money back?

ALL 10's and 11's squeak. ALL that means OG's and retros. the cool grays will squeak and so will the others that drop. how did u do the baby powder method cuz it definitely worked for me. take out the insole (careful not to rip it as it is glued in) sprinkle a generous amount of Baby Powder move the shoe around to coat the inside evenly. and pour out any excess powder

Don't know about squeaking but they murder my piny toes.

23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

Mine squeak too. I think it's moisture because if I don't wear them for about a week it stops. After a few days it comes back. Blah.

RIP WMG...We STILL miss you Poppa

In regards to the question about sending them back, yes. I emailed Nike and told them what the problem is, the suggested I put baby powder under the insoles (like what NT'ers are suggesting) and it didn't work but they said if that didn't work or if I didn't want to try it I could send them in for inspection & if a problem is detected they will credit me the retail of shoes to use on NDC and I think their stores. I'm gonna try baby powder one more time and add a lil' bit more than the last time & see what I get.

SWERVE!!!

My joints were squeaking. Just put some powder in there though, so let's see how it works. Good looks OP.

Mine started squeaking after a few wears,i would say after 6+...i took both insoles out, put baby powder underneath, and for good measure, put baby powder on top of the insole also....wore them 3x since, no squeaking

I havent had this problme with cdp XIs. I mustve worn them over 50x, rain,snow, ball, etc. and not a single squeak.
