I have a pair of Nike Free Run shoes, which I am very happy with! Since May 2013 I have been using them. I have racked up roughly 400-500 miles since then. When should I upgrade?
I am conscious that I have the Berlin Half-Marathon (30th March) forthcoming so I would rather change them sooner, rather then later. I predict their time is up, even though they still seem suffice.
Also, I read a little about having two pairs of trainers for people who clock up a lot of mileage. As it takes 24 hrs for the shoe to replenish its shape after a long run. What are peoples thoughts on this?
Thanks, I shall be purchasing said item this weekend.
I would just wear the old one on the right and the new one on the left for the first week of transition
Having 2 pairs allows a day for each one to dry out after all the puddles and doesnt cost anymore over time, just buy another when the first pair is halfway though their life and it spreads the cost.
500 miles is a fair life some get a lot more out but it depends on your running style , weight and im sure many other things.If you get say 600 miles out of a pair and they cost £60 which is what I usually pay then thats only a tenner /100 miles .
They need upgrading to be fair. Starting to wear, I have ordered a new pair as of Saturday. So just awaiting arrival. Thanks!
