I think (but not sure) the creaking and play issue happens on certain shoes. I have the 2013 Sworks SL shoes and it creaks a lot on both Keo Blade and Keo blade2 pedals. Have to put lots of White Lightning Dry lube on the contact area to resolve the issue. But i also happen to have the older sworks shoes with newly installed cleats, it does not have those issues on both pedals.

Would be interesting to know what shoes creaks and what shoes don't.

I have 2012 S-works shoes and no creaking.
But I did have some squeeking/creaking when the pedals were new (Blade 2 both Ti and CroMo)
I put some silicone lube on the inside surface of the rubber cleat button, and also lubed all moving parts of the pedal (with light oil) . I also made sure to wipe a little silicone lube on all pedal-cleat contact points at the heel and toe, not just the metal contact surface.
I don't know exactly what the key action was, but all noise has disappeared and never returned. I strongly suspect it is associated with the rubber buttons. I don't think they serve any real purpose other than to cover up the hole. Some people ride without them. Shimano cleats have no buttons, and seem to work fine.
I am going to try just leaving them off the next time I change cleats.

Also, make sure your cleats are securely screwed to the shoe.

Read the comment about side to side rocking and switching to Dura Ace. Seems to fit with my original impressions of the Blade's v1. Interesting if nothing else and a bit of food for thought
