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!

The doctor is able to arrange this through a regional hospital but I was asked to help research other possible hospitals where they could have this done. Do you have any specific recommendations for hospitals or facilities that do a large number of these or are uniquely qualified/specialized? Patient is based in the northeast US, please assume no insurance/cost/travel barriers at this point.
I plan to interview Oregon non-profit organizations this year. Not counting Guidestar, I have compiled a list of about 1800 NPs in the state from six other lists (Charity Navigator, nonprofitlist.org, Oregon Department of Justice, Combined Federal Campaign Oregon, Non Profit Association of Oregon and GiveGuide2014). I want to explore the work of some of those little known who never get publicity or don't have a lot of money but have missions worthy of attention. [more inside]
