Default Periodical Knee Pain

I don't think I've ever struggled with knee pain from my squats until after I started lifting again after a few good months off. During that time I was pretty much completely inactive. Anyways, some knee pain came and went. At one point I had to take two weeks off of squatting because it was so bad. It went away. Here again lately I've been noticing it again. So, here's a little bit about my current way of life:

On my feet working for around 40 hours a week. Squats twice a week. Regular and front(after deadlifts). I also got some weightlifting shoes about a month ago. I noticed that when using those, my right knee had some pain. I was able to work through that by just pushing my hips back a little more. With the squat shoes, I've noticed over this past month that sometimes I get some irritation, but nothing too bad. It usually goes away during my warm ups. This has NOT happened every session I've worn these shoes. However, tonight, I went in to squat and had the pain all of the way up to my heaviest set. Instead of 5 reps, I had to opt for 2 because I don't want to risk an injury right now. I ended up dropping the weight down all the way off to just the bar and still found that no matter how I squatted, the pain was coming on as I got closer to parallel. I even tried switching into my chucks, but at least for tonight, it was of no use.

So, suggestions? I'm sure some hip mobility work would suit me well.(And shoulder mobility work. I surely need that and did some earlier) Do you all think this is a matter of tightness in my muscles or something a little bigger like tendinitis? I want to try to squat again tomorrow and will be doing a lot of stretching throughout the day to at least get the tip of the iceberg. And, has anyone else experienced anything similar to this with weightlifting shoes?
The shoes seem to have some benefit to them, but if they are the cause of this, there is no true benefit. Any help is greatly appreciated.
