Time for New Shoes

When Is It Time for New Shoes?

While you may feel outside of your comfort zone without your trusty pair of shoes, hanging on to them can put you at risk for serious injury. As time passes, running shoes start losing stability as well as their impact absorption capabilities. Replacing them is the answer—but when?

Sometimes we love our old pairs of tennis shoes so much that we don’t realize we have been wearing them out for multiple years. It is generally recommended that a person replace a pair of shoes every 350 – 500 miles or every three to six months.

Failure to replace shoes can result in:

  • Daily aches and pains
  • Sprained ankles
  • Soreness
  • Falls resulting in fractures

Remember to replace your shoes with new ones by marking your calendar or picking out a few pairs at one time. Doing so will have you pain-free and give you the comfort you desire.

If you suffer a foot or ankle injury, make an appointment with a specialist at Wisconsin Bone and Joint or request an appointment online.
