The average life of a shoe, based on the manufacturer’s and the sports medicine testing, is approximately 800-1000 km (500-600 mi) Many times the shoe’s upper will still be in great shape, but the cushioning and supportive features have been lost. A good test is to drop in to a store when you have 800 km on your shoes and compare a run around the block in a new pair to the old ones. Specialty stores like the Running Room will let you do just that. The key to staying off the injury list is to keep your shoes in good shape, so they can keep you in good shape. Happy, healthy running!
