We Should Rotate Our Shoes More Often
Go ahead and buy a new pair or running shoes — or two — even if your current kicks have hundreds of miles left in them. According to a 2014 study, recreational runners who regularly rotated between shoes (usually completely different models) were 39 percent less likely to suffer a running-related injury than those who wore the same pair every run. Switching up footwear helps to spread out the load of training volume to be easier on your body, says study author Daniel Theisen, head of the Sports Medicine Research Laboratory in Luxembourg. Also, by wearing multiple pairs, you don’t have that drastic jump from one worn-out pair to a fresh set. And each pair will likely last longer.
