Have you made it your goal to start running? This is a great goal to get yourself running. I have heard that you need to replace your running shoes about every 350 to 450 miles. It can get very expensive to replace your running shoes that often. If you take care of your shoes, you won’t have to replace them as often. If you want to make sure that you don’t have to replace your shows as much”•here are some tips to help you keep your shoes in great condition.

1. Wear your running shoes just for exercise. Even if your running shoes are the most comfortable shoes that you own, make sure that you don’t wear them everywhere. It will ensure that your shoes will get ruined faster. Even if you are just walking around, this will wear out the cushioning on your shoes. Just wear your shoes to exercise.

2. Take the time to take them on and off the right way. Make sure that you take your shoes on and off the right way. If you take the time to take your shoes off the right way, you will ensure that your shoes will last a lot longer.

3. Dry your shoes when they get wet. If you get your shoes wet, don’t put them on direct heat. If you put them on direct heat, it dries out the leather and the other materials in your workout shoes. Let them dry naturally. Here’s a great tip: put newspaper in your shoes to help them dry out faster.

4. Alternate your shoes. If you are going to do a lot of running, try to get two pairs of running shoes. Your shoes will last a lot longer if you alternate them.

5. Make sure that you store your shoes in the right way. Keep your shoes in a dry, cool place where you can make sure that they air out properly. This will reduce the chance of your shoes smelling really bad.

6. Don’t put your running shoes in the washing machine. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a good idea to put your shoes in the washer. It will help your shoes last longer.

Make sure that you use these tips to help you with your running shoes. With your running shoes in perfect condition, you will be able to run a lot more. You will enjoy your exercising and you will feel very comfortable when you are running.
