Good people of MetaFilter, I want to find a gladiator - type women's pump that doesn't squeak. Currently, I own these shoes. I love them, but they squeak so much it sounds like I am walking on dolphins. I have bad knees so I can't do much more thsn about a 2.5 inch heel. I don't mind a platform pump as long as the toe is not too much lower than the heel. I want them in black, and I would prefer leather to man made material. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you!
My sandals have finally started falling apart with the sole separating from the body and making walking more and more awkward. I'd love to find another pair that will also last me 2.5 years. [more inside]
My friend came over the other day wearing these 90s-trend shoes, and I love them, but she says they are not comfortable. Help me find something similar, but in a better-quality shoe. [more inside]

Sandalfilter: Australian shoe, looks like a flip flop, but with strap farther back and a peg for between big toe and middle. Named something like yogi shoe. Any bells?
