I am a bit confused.
How often are running shoes supposed to be replaced? and how long can you keep them?
Mine are very old, they have always been comfortable but they are starting to give me a bit of trouble lately and i noticed the sole is.................disapearing!
Yes, i know i have to replace them, and i'll do soon, but in general, how long are they supposed to last?
Depends on lots of factors, your weight, the type of shoe, the surface you run on, your running gait etc.
General idea is around the 300-500 mile mark
You've covered a couple of the tell tale signs, they feel like there giving you problems and the sole is worn out. There's more pointers here

What about those uk military shoes kittenkat was testing ? She got a good distance from those ?
That's the UK gear one, designed for 1000miles for people who really hate to shoe shop

I used to nail a steel "toe tector" to the outside front edge to increase the wear. Unfortunately I used to make a rather annoying clicking noise when I ran on the road and when I ran fast on concrete surfaces I used to give off sparks .
I want one of those!
