Some never squeak. Some squeak when wet. Some always squeak.

For shoes that squeak when wet: Moisture gets trapped inside the parts of the shoe that move while you walk, and squeaks.

For shoes that always squeak: The shoe’s rubber is made in a way that the rubber rubs against itself and causes friction which makes a sound.
