Stomping and clomping

Shoes that make noise are shoes that shouldn't be worn. A noisy walker can make any shoe a noisy shoe, of course. A stomper or a scuffer will make noise in any shoe on any surface. I don't want to hear myself or anybody else walk. All footgear seems to develop some sort of squeak or pop with age. A pair of shoes that begins to do this is destined for early disposal. One day silent; the next day noisy and doomed. This is built-in obsolescence!
