Sneakers are such an important factor! In this video, I talk about how finding the right running shoes, specifically Brooks sneakers, helped me overcome foot pain from having flat feet and improve my running. I share tips on choosing, replacing, and breaking in running shoes to avoid injuries. I also explain how to find the best deals on running shoes and recommend specific Brooks models.

How Often to Replace Running Shoes?

The time it takes to reach the mileage limit for running shoes depends on your weekly mileage. Here’s a quick guide:

20 miles/week: Replace every 15-25 weeks (3.5-6 months)
30 miles/week: Replace every 10-17 weeks (2.5-4 months)
40 miles/week: Replace every 7.5-12.5 weeks (2-3 months)
50 miles/week: Replace every 6-10 weeks (1.5-2.5 months)
Expect to need new running shoes every 2 to 6 months based on your mileage and shoe condition.
