Sqweaky boots

I recently bought a pair of k2 darko. And when im trying to break them in around the house, I notice they were really squeaky. Is that just because they are new? Will it eventually loose that squeakiness?

Thanks

Pretty sure every pair of boots I have owned squeaks when you wear them around the house.

Probably on the mountain too. I wouldn't count on it going away, but you will probably never hear it while you are riding.

Don't worry about it.

You're right better make it WD-40 and some graphite powder.
