HOW TO TELL IF YOUR SHOES NEED REPLACING
TIP 1: THE OUTSOLE
Watch for wearing down – similar to a car or bike tyre tread – on the lateral heel and forefoot.
TIP 2: THE MIDSOLE
Look for compression and crease lines coupled with the cushioning becoming firmer and changing shape.
TIP 3: THE UPPER
Monitor for holes in the upper mesh. Over time the upper will stretch, causing your foot to move around and decrease stability.
TIP 4: THE INNER HEEL
Check the heel liner material for compression. This happens over time as you take shoes on and off, and can impact the fit.
TIP 5: THE FIT
If you notice the fit of your shoe has changed, it’s time to get refitted for a new pair.
