If you love jogging and intend to stick with it long and seriously with this sport. Do not regret cheap a pair of degraded shoes. Running shoes are just a tool to help you practice and compete, when the tool is no longer useful, you need to replace it.
Moreover, you should not try to force your body to wear an old pair of shoes although it is very comfortable and suitable at first. If you don’t know when to replace your new running shoes, here are some quick and easy ways to identify them.
Like every other item, running shoes also have an average lifespan of about 2 to 3 years. This depends on the frequency of use, level of exercise and weight, body height of each person. Usually, you can base on your training schedule and terrain to make a decision.
For long-time runners, they can make the decision to change shoes at the right time without any difficulty. As for beginners or not long time, this is really a thought. So, in addition to keeping a running diary, you can refer to other ways to identify more easily.
When the shoe touches the ground, the airbags are squeezed and inflate when lifted, thereby providing resilience for the shoe, anti-shock when running. The most easily degraded part is the inner cushion, which reduces shock and protects your feet. This is relatively difficult to identify because it is beyond the ability to observe.
If your middle sole becomes too soft and easy to collapse under pressure, the shoes may no longer be able to elastic body weight. In addition, you may notice the long wrinkles on the middle sole.
When the sole is broken, your body becomes unbalanced and the pressure is put down on uneven feet. This is quite noticeable when you put two shoes side by side and see that the sole is not of the same height or one of the shoes is no longer standing on a flat surface.
Running in these shoes easily leads to serious injury later due to increased pressure acting on the feet and knees.
