Whether your workout involves running, walking, hiking or hitting the gym, a decent shoe is very important. Injuries can be caused by inappropriate shoes and can derail your fitness or weight loss goals.
Investing in a quality shoe can help you to prevent foot and ankle damage, a sore back and make your workout a more pleasant and comfortable experience.
Worn out shoes do not provide your feet with enough protection during your workout. According to Michigan State University running shoes should be replaced after every 350 to 500 miles(500-800 kms). If you run 10 kilometres a week, this means you should replace your shoes every 20 to 25 weeks. You can easily judge the wear of your shoes from the treads on the bottom once the treads are becoming smooth it’s a good sign you need new shoes, don’t wait until holes start appearing.
