How long do running shoes last?
The local shop says about 600 miles. Adidas advertise a 1000K guarantee (about 620 miles). But then they "won't believe you" if they wear out in that time.
For a £60 pair of shoes, that's 10p per mile; about the same as petrol.
OK, so it depends on weight, style, terrain, sharp stones and phase of the moon. etc. etc. But how long 'on average'?
And what are the systems of the shoes 'going home' - with or without the runner?
