How Often Should I Replace My Running Shoes?

Shoe Replacement frequency

It’s important to run in quality shoes, not only for efficiency, but for safety. Running in worn out shoes or those of an improper fit can be detrimental not only to your feet, but to your knees and hips and even your back. It’s comparable to a car driving without shock absorbers. There are hundreds of brands and styles to choose from, but the most important thing is that you are properly fitted, and that you replace your shoes between 300 and 500 miles – that’s every 5 to 6 months if you’re running 3 miles 5x per week.
