Do trainers wear out quicker in the winter?

I have had to change my trainers this week having only done 500km in the last ones. The ones I had before them lasted 750km before i started getting sore feet.

Is this normal? Is it just because the most recent pair have been running through the winter and have been wet and mucky more?

actually Tange they probably do. In the cold they are probably harder and more brittle at the sole and that. Therefore any pressure may pull the molecules apart and any rubbing may result in wear. When warm -there is likely to be more elasticity all 'round. Well That's my theory:O)

could be true. Also if you're like me you're likely to run more on harder wearing roads and pavement in winter and softer ground in the summer.
