    What do you do with your old running shoes?

     

    How often do you replace yours?


    Boston Strong in 2014!

      I take old running shoes to my local running store to be recycled/donated.

       

      Replace running shoes after about 400 miles.

      And in the end...

        I used to replace running shoes every 300-400 miles.  Now, I have shoes with well over 1000 miles on them and they're still in rotation.

        The GITM is moot.

          After about 500 miles, the old ones get promoted to primary law mowing treads.

            Once or twice a year I get a call from a local thrift shop that they will be in the neighborhood and picking up stuff.  I clean up all my retired shoes and put them out with any of the clothes we are donating.

              After about 500 miles, the old ones get promoted to primary law mowing treads.

              I mowed the law, and the Law won!

                  Save most - use for hiking, walking, or yard work.  Every 350 miles I notice when I am due for replacement - depending on my baseline - every 2-3 months.  Oh, and I can usually get away with an old pair for any short 5k run.

                    I usually replace my running shoes every 800 km and the the dismissed pair is seldom very very "tired" so I use this shoes for yard work or, in the best cases, for walking.

                      I usually get 500+ and sometimes as much as 700 mile.     After they are worn out to the point I can run in them, I usually hold on to them and wear them when I tar the driveway, stain the deck or work in the yard and then throw them away, because that usually ruins them for good.

                        I guess that makes you a tar-heeled runner.  Hee Hee. Smile

                          I usually wear them around for a while, feeling silly that I'm wearing not-so-bright neon colored shoes around town.  Then, when I start to see sock where I shouldn't, I retire them to the nearest recycling center (we have a shoe center close by, actually, kinda cool).

                            They either become casual shoes or get donated at my LRS' monthly "adventure run" in exchange for a beer ticket.

                              Shoes for beer - now there's a proposition I can get into.  Where is this LRS adventure run - I'm ready to move.

                                I don't keep track of mileage on my shoes very well.  When I start blowing holes in them, It's time to use them for mowing the lawn, or other yard work.
