Depending on the activity and terrain, most athletic shoes will last you between 300 and 500 miles. Once you hit the maximum mileage, your shoes are no longer supporting you properly, and you risk shin splints and achy knees. While it may seem expensive to replace your athletic shoes, it’s worth it because proper replacements will save you from painful and unnecessary injuries.*
When your shoes show signs of unevenness and display noticeable creasing, it’s time to replace them. A good rule of thumb is to replace any athletic shoes that are over one year old, because even without frequent use, the supportive materials in shoes start to deteriorate over time.
