A good shoe is very important for the health of your foot. As much as it’s important to select good quality shoes for your feet, replacing shoes on time is equally important. Some shoes need to be replaced every 8-12 months, but some shoes might last longer, while others may wear out more quickly.
But most of us wonder why we should replace shoes if they look perfectly fine? Your shoes might look perfectly fine and might be free from any wear and tear. But with timely usage, the regular compression on the sole makes it uncomfortable and unsupportive. The prolonged use of such shoes could have an adverse effect on the health of your feet. You might start experiencing pain in your heels or in the toes. It might even strain your ankles and legs. Hence making your legs pain even after walking short distances.
So now you know that replacing your shoes are very important for your fee. The next the question is when exactly should you change them. Is there any predefined time to replace your shoes? There is no pre-defined time as to when you should change your shoes.
If your shoes are not as comfortable and supportive as when they were new then it’s definitely the time to replace them. Also if the materials wear down, the cushioning and support compresses and the materials of the shoes don’t bounce back, then it’s the time to get new shoes for your feet.
