How often should you change your shoes is a common question among runners. Many books and websites will give a range of 400-600 kilometers or sometimes more. I even keep a mileage of my shoes to see if they need to be replaced or not.
However, different shoe performs differently and different people have different running patterns. Thus, the range of kilometers might not always work.
Here’s a video from Dr. Jenny Sanders, a podiatrist who has been practicing in the Financial District of San Francisco since 1990. She blogs about some of her patients running shoes and reviews them as well at http://drshoe.wordpress.com.
Dr. Sanders says you can check on four parts of the shoe to decide if they need to be changed: midsole, outsole, heel counter and the upper.
Here is Dr. Sanders advice how you can tell if you need to change your running shoes.
