Problem: Squeeeeeeak

The Air Jordan XI is hands-down one of the greatest sneakers ever created, which is how it can wind up on this list twice. The chaos that has become an annual holiday tradition is a reminder of just how many people like the patent leather and translucent sole of the XI. However, nothing is worse than getting that fresh pair just in time for New Year's, slipping them on and hearing an annoying squeak after just a few steps. There are theories all over the Net on what causes the squeak, ranging from moisture to manufacturing defects, but the cause isn't really the problem—the solution is what everyone is looking for. We've found wearing them is the best solution for any sneaker annoyance.
