How Many Kilometers Can I Run With My Running Shoes?

by Alberto
(Portugal)

Hello, there is one question I'd like to know. I run 3/4 times a week and my actual shoes are Nike Vomero which I really like.

Is there any correct time I should replace it by a new pair? Is there a standard duration for those running shoes?

Thanks for your help
Alberto

Hi Alberto,
Thanks for your question about your Nike Runners.

It is pretty hard to give you a definite answer.

The general rule is that running shoes will last you for at least 800 - 1000 km (~500 - 600 miles).

Some good quality shoes you can even get to wear till about 1,500 km (~900 miles).

It also depends on your body weight, your running style (do you run like a gazelle or an elephant?), how well you take care of your shoes, whether you do a lot of off-road / rough terrain stuff, etc.

So, pretty much impossible to give you The Number! Regularly check out the wear and tear of your shoes, especially soles and if in doubt, just go to a good running shoe store and get a professional's opinion.

Hope this helps.
Enjoy your running.
Cheers,
Dominique
