Your Shoe Mileage

 

 

Do you run or walk for daily exercise? If so, then you need to know your shoe mileage.

Shoes wear out and are not helpful or protective to feet and legs during extreme exercise long before they show wear and tear.

Doctors and fitness trainers recommend replacing a pair of athletic shoes after no more than 500 miles. If the shoes are showing wear and the feet, legs or knees are showing any sign of pain, replace them at 400 miles. Replace any shoes immediately when they become uneven or have a hole in the sole.

Walking is the best exercise because it involves the legs, the largest muscles in the body and it also stimulates every muscle in the body.
