It’s important to replace your running shoes every 300 to 400 miles, but getting new shoes every couple of months can get expensive. But the better you take care of your running shoes, the longer they’ll last. Although they may be your most comfortable pair of shoes, don’t wear your running shoes for anything other than running or working out. Even if you’re just walking around, you’re still wearing out the cushioning. You’re also exposing them to more sweat, dirt, bacteria and funguswith every extra hour on your feet. All of those will take a toll on the condition of the shoe upper and insole.
