That reminded me-
aYears ago my grandfather watched a scene in a western where four men were walking down a board sidewalk. He commented that it wasn't realistic because you couldn't hear their heels striking the wood. In his day, there were only leather heels and anyone walking on a board sidewalk made a racket if they walked normally.
