  • 1. Analyze the need to purchase running shoes based on the number of miles your old pair has on them. Do not base your need for new shoes by observing how much tread remains on the outer sole. The mid-sole of many running shoes break down at 400 miles (or earlier depending on a number of factors) and offers little or no protection after that period of time. It is important to keep in mind that running shoes provide the first line of defense against the potential of injury.

    2. Consider purchasing two pairs of running shoes. Flip-flopping their use every other day increases the life expectancy of each pair.

    3. Purchase a new pair of shoes that you will use during the actual event approximately four to six weeks prior to the marathon. These shoes should be the same model that you've found works well for you during your long runs. The key point here is to have sufficient time to break the new pair in (by logging 60-70 miles including one long run) prior to your race.
