When To Replace Your Running Shoes & How To Get Fitted


Hey, guys! I’m Heather and welcome back to my channel. I wanted to share some tips on how to properly
get fitted for running shoes and when exactly to replace them. You don’t understand how important it is to
wear the right shoe. But you will after you watch this video. If you like what you see, remember to subscribe
and I’ll also link my blog post down below. If you don’t want runner’s knee, shin splints,
any of those fun lower extremity injuries, you need to be wearing the right shoe. More specifically, if you play a certain type
of sport more than twice a week, then you need a shoe designed for that sport. For example, if you go hiking, play tennis,
run, you need a shoe designed for those activities. I know a lot of people who lift that like
to wear Converse. And that is perfectly fine because it’s such
a flat shoe, but I would not want to go running in them. The easiest thing to do would be to invest
in a pair of cross trainers, especially if you are going to be doing a lot of stuff. So, when you do go get fitted, make sure you
go towards the end of the day. Your foot does tend to swell, um during exercise
as well as throughout the day. It just does. Your foot can actually swell up to like a
half size, but I feel like maybe more. Wear the same thickness socks as you would
when you exercise. When you try on your shoes, you want to make
sure you have enough room to wiggle your toes in the front without your heels slipping in
the back. Also, when you try your shoes on, you want
to make sure you rotate your ankle around. This will make sure that the shoe won’t rub
on your toes or your ankle. Which creates blisters. Now that you know how to get fitted, remember
it’s important to replace them regularly. This depends on how often you run. Um, a good rule of thumb is to replace them
between 350 to 500 miles. Take a good look at the bottom of your shoe
and if they’re worn down unevenly, or if they become flat, it’s time to toss them out. Just like wearing the wrong footwear can cause
injuries, wearing shoes that aren’t absorbing the pounding action against the ground can
also mess your stuff up. Those are all my tips for finding the appropriate
footwear, Ihope you guys found this helpful and maybe share this with, you know, your
workout buddies. Since you made it through to the end, hit
