If you are unsure whether, or not your own sneakers need replacing, we’ve got you covered. Good running, or walking shoes are designed to last for 300 to 400 miles. So, they’ll need to be replaced every six months if you are running in them; and every 10 months if you are walking. Try to take note of the date every time you start wearing a new pair of running shoes.
Another way you can check on your running, or walking shoes is by twisting them. They should be firm, so make sure they can’t bend when you attempt to twist them. Also, if the shoes are worn down and your feet don’t feel as comfortable as a new pair, those are signs that they should be replaced.
It doesn’t matter if they still look new. If the support has been worn out, you’re at a much higher risk of injury. Worn out running shoes can frequently cause foot pain as well as leg and knee pain.
