Time for new shoes?

They may not be as coveted as the latest designer footwear, but did you know that running shoes need just as much care? It’s hardly surprising, given that the average pair of sneakers will cover a distance of 500 to 600 kilometres.

Over time, your shoes lose shock absorption, cushioning and stability. One way to extend their life is to have two pairs on the go at once. Introducing another pair to wear for every second run will allow your shoes to

decompress and dry out between workouts, and a fresh pair will help you notice when your old ones need to be replaced.

Another sign that your sneakers may have done their dash is when your joints and knees start to hurt after running so keep an eye on the kms and put your best foot forward!
