Podiatrist and ASICS PRO Team member Clifton Bradeley explains when and why you should be thinking about changing your shoes.
"When you take your new ASICS running shoes out of the box all pristine and clean, they are also at their most protective and supportive.
Like any product used regularly, they will wear out eventually. How quickly this happens is determined by your mileage, body weight and foot type."
- Running on the road all of the time will wear out your shoes quicker than running off-road
- Running in excessively worn running shoes may increase your risk of repetitive injuries in the feet, legs and pelvis
- A heavy overpronator who runs daily will wear their shoes out faster than say a lighter, neutral runner who runs every other day
"I would recommend you change your running shoes between 450 to 550 miles."
