It's possible that it's more in the cleat or shoe to pedal interface, than in the pedal itself. Try riding them using normal uncleated shoes and see if the moise persists. If not, try lubing the cleat area. I've had good results on my (non-Shimano) road pedals rubbing a paraffin candle on all the points of contact. You can also use zipper wax, or even a crayon.
