I have used a tea candle as a anti squeek measure on look keo pedals for a while. Just rub the wax on the contact surfaces. Doesn't attract dirt as much as a wet lube and lasts longer. Should work on SPD as well.

I use the xtr trail pedals with the Giro lace up shoes and there's no squeaking.

I have this exact issue with my Lake Supercross shoes (used for width, love them) and XTR pedals - will give the candle trick a go. I do like a quiet bike and this has been driving me crazy. Not keen on increasing the stack height though, I'd sooner perform surgery on the rubber soles.

I had the same problems with my XT pedals and Specialized and Lake shoes.. Switched to HT component M1 pedals and all is good.
