    I was wondering if there is any particular way to measure when runners need to be replaced. Having the guide of 6-9 months for walking as well as how many miles they have been run in is a great way to help monitor when to replace runners. I hadn’t thought of it in this way before. I don’t usually do any regular walking or running, so mine will be longer than 12 months but this seems like a good way to get some comparison. I guess if you know they are hurting in any case, you need to replace them with something comfortable. Thanks for the tips.

      Hey Kat,  

      It’s of great pleasure to hear from you and humbled for the positive impact my article has to you. 

      You are not alone, they’re many people who do workout but no idea on when to replace their worn-out sneakers, 

      It’s quite helpful to know when to have a new ones especially if you are a person who workout every day so that it can ease your movement and comfort during your exercise. 

      You are right when you say, you might take more than 12 months cos you are not a regular runner, which is ok but still I encourage you to schedule your day atlist to have time for exercise. It might be of great advantage to your health lifestyle. 

      Am so grateful for your feedback.

    I know of several people including myself that make use of a pair of sneakers for several years before getting a new one. Like was said in this post I think it is probably because of what we use the pair of sneakers for. Sometimes the sneakers I buy are so expensive that getting rid of them after a year becomes a major problem. I do get your point on how long we should use our sneakers but there are factors that should determine if it is time to get a new pair. Sneakers obviously vary interms of quality. Getting rid of a good pair of sneakers even after making use of it for a year is definitely not for everyone.

      Hey Jay,

      It’s wonderful to hear from you with great feedback, I concur with you on how many people including you take some time to get new sneakers, and its always apply on as guyz.

      I also agree with you on how you can be having a quality sneakers which is expensive and you are not ready to get rid of them despite it’s time limit, I can say if you are a daily workout person,

      they will still wear out and if you don’t get rid of them, you will start filling uncomfortable in them and sometimes get blisters.

      I really appreciate for your point of view and great feedback. 

      Regards from,

    This is a really helpful review truth be told because a lot of people take minor things like this for granted and it contribute to the health and state of our legs. Many people like me are not aware that shoes are supposed to be changed after a particular range of time. Thanks for  this educating review that has carefully and rightly given this guide. I Agee that shoes that appear shiny and beautiful might not last long as all that glitters is not gold and I would use this lesson learnt here dearly …

      Hey Willy,
      Thanks for appreciating my article and how it has been an eye opener to you, we sometimes ignore to change our old shoes into new ones maybe because it was an original one.

      If you are a daily workout person I advise you to be more keen on your shoes cos there are the ones that determine your body balance and comfortability during your workout.

      What glitters is not gold, go in hand with cheap is expensive, you might see a shiny sneakers and when you confirm the price, is quite cheap and that’s where you know if the sneakers are fake or original.

      Regards from,

    I have always loved company marathons and there are times I got several blisters which I did not attribute to the kind of sneakers I wore. But I realized that every time I changed sneakers, I got a little comfortable. I have been a victim of ‘glitter’ and I got  burnt several times.

    There are also those sneakers that just loose their grip on the ground after just a few wears. This is also very dangerous as it is very slippery. Very dangerous!

    Thank you for the reminder on what to look out for and the time to replace sneakers.

    Great article!

      Hey Carol,

      Thanks for your appreciation and am sorry about the blisters, It’s good  you realized the problem and had to work on it by changing your sneakers. 

      I also through that and that’s what made me come up with this post and I have realized many people have no idea on what to do.

      About the loose grip sneakers,  I advise you to look for quality onces and don’t bother about the prices cos they are going to serve you for a quality time and be comfortable in them.

      Thanks for your feedback. 

      Regards from,
