One of the local running clubs actually recylces them. I think they send them out to third world countries. I need to retire a pair as I've noticed my knees, glutes, back really start to ache when I run in them.
Ive not got through my first pair yet, how long should i use them for before changing them? There was a women in the shop when i bought mine that had her running shoes for five years and she was very reluctant to get new ones.
Generally you should change your running shoes about every 300-500 miles. You generally know when they are starting to go as they loose all their bounce and you get a few more niggles than before. If you run about 20 miles a week then a pair of shoes may last you 15 weeks or so (based on the lower end).
I'm taking part in the Dopey Challenge at Disney in January 2020, its a 5km, 10km, HM, FM one day after another. I have really started to up the distances I am running and am in need of some new trainers, this is the best place I can think of for honest suggestions and opinions...
I currently run in Brooks Glycerin with custom made orthotics. These shoes are fab but have thougt about changing to either Brooks Ghost or Hoka Clifton. Anyone had experience of good shoes with orthotics.
Had these for 9 weeks, used them for running/walking and covered 246 miles in that time.
I'm 15 stone male, in HM training.
Can anyone tell me that the wear on these shoes are normal for the life i've had them, and also if you think there is more life in them, or should i be changing them?
