Unwaxed rubber sole is my vote.

Um, yeah. Don't know where my brain was that evening :)

Sometimes my shoe (different shoes) will squeak when it's sitting a little less than ideally on my foot. Socks, carelessness in donning the shoes, gait, and the surface (e.g. tiled linoleum) have been factors for me.

Your shoe wants to join the circus, as a clown-shoe.

Hm.

Well it's got a loooong way to go. (In more ways than one- I don't think there are any circuses nearby).

Apropos of nothing, but a shared affection of Almodovar, I just read a piece about his latest film The Skin I Live In. Here's a website that's posted a trailer: http://www.awardsdaily.com/2011/08/us-trailer-for-almodovars-the-skin-i-live-in/

Plotwise, it's about a plastic surgeon keeping someone prisoner, but Almodovar promises to make that grotesque scenario so much more.

I think my favorite is currently Flower of my Secret, but perhaps that's not surprising. All About My Mother is a better film. Women on the Verge funnier, and Volver raw and beautiful. I've yet to see one I don't like, and that's saying something. (I also haven't seen them all.)

Thanks for that link; I hadn't gotten to see the preview yet.

We saw All About My Mother last night. Indeed, I've never seen an Amodovar I don't like, though I will reserve judgment about the latest one, which looks possibly not-my-thing? Maybe.

I guess I could try wrapping it in tinfoil to see if the squeak goes away?...

Hee! ...That would make walking interesting.

And it would be a good conversation-starter...
