You need new shoes when...

I was running along today when I noticed a draft around my toes. My shoes have been letting in water for a while but this was something new. Anyway when I turned them up - I could see the underside of my big toe visible through a hole that had worn through the rubber, through the midsole, through the suede and finally through my sock.

I suppose I'll have to buy a new pair after only a 1,000 miles !

Only a few miles then!

I bet you're someone who suffers none or few injuries too?!

of course he is - he's a minimalist shoe - non-heel striker - his body knows how to absorb shock.
And midsole deformation after 400M is hardly a reason to but new shoes when your shoe has littl or no midsole... :-)

Good news - I don't need a new pair just yet as I've just found another pair of socks in my drawer :-)

LOL - funny, but probably true... :-D

I've mentioned this elsewhere but with no reply. After (almost exactly) three miles my left foot goes numb. I do need to change my shoes but is there a darker issue? how does my foot know when to go numb at three miles?
