My KSO's are the most notorious for squeaking on smooth cement at work.  People know the sound of my VFF's from the way they squeak, I can't go stealth with them on!  I tell them that the best comparison I have to that squeaking sound is the sound of Squidward walking from Sponge Bob Squarepants.

The Treksport, Bikila LS and Komodosports also squeak on smooth cement, but not quite as loud as the KSO's.

Also when I'm on the second floor people know it's me walking, my boss know when I'm heading to the office way before I get close to the office door, and the top floor is carpeted.  Since I walk forefoot first, I make a certain "thud" when I walk and I guess it amplifies a bit more upstairs.

But walking on other types of surfaces, the squeaking is obviously not there...that is good!

So besides having my feet/shoes being noticed, now I get attention as I'm on the move!
