Trainers - do you think I need a new pair?

Hi all,

I got a new pair of running trainers in July, and have worn them pretty much every day running, and a marathon. There is a small tear at the top of the toe, but other than that they are still really comfortable.

How often do you buy a new pair? They cost £80 and I really can't afford a new pair at the moment.  I was going to try and get a race pair and then use these just for my shorter distances during the week.

    If they still feel comfortable then you may not need to fork out just yet. Generally shoes last for 500-700 miles, on regular mileage and a few races. On the other hand you will need to get a new pair ar some point so It might be worth getting them now and rotating between the old and the new pair?


  • Thanks Mcbood. Think I need to get another pair then, I'm torn between getting the same pair, which provide lots of cushioning because I serverly over pronate, or a race pair, much lighter but still have support for my feet. Might go to see a running specialist to see what they say.
