Life Expectancy of Shoes
A pair of standard running shoes will last somewhere in the range of 300-500 miles. For our average customer, this means replacing shoes around every six months. However, there are a lot of factors that will influence how often your shoes need to be replaced. For example, a lightweight trainer will last fewer miles than a more traditional running shoe. What you do in your shoes, the surface you are on, the frequency of use and many other factors will affect the length of time that your shoes will last. If you wear your running shoes to work all day, every day and stand on a hard surface, it is not unusual for your running shoes be worn out in as little as a month or two.
If you have an injury or ailment, getting fit for the right type of shoes can go a long way in aiding recovery. It can also go a long way in prevention of future medical issues. Many of our injury prevention and treatment products can assist in both. We are not medical professionals and cannot diagnose injuries, but we can help you get on the road to recovery or prevention.
We carry a great selection of road racing shoes and cross country and track and field spikes. These shoes are designed to be lightweight and fast. As a result, they do not last as long as a pair of training shoes. It is typical to get one season of use out of a pair of competition shoes. The uppers are also not made to withstand getting spiked by other competitors, so be careful!
We are very selective in only choosing the best brands and products, and we stand behind everything we carry. It doesn’t happen often, but if you encounter a manufacturer’s defect we will gladly exchange the product for one free of defects, a different product, or we will refund you the purchase price paid for the item.
