It may be obvious, but it’s good to realize that running shoes are for running and crosstrainer shoes for performing HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts, among other things.
Running shoes are light, corrective and cushioning, while cross trainers offer more firmness but less cushioning. Although it is not recommended, cross trainers are still used by many people for running and running shoes for other sports.
Good. Then now: how often should you replace your sports shoes? In general, it is recommended to buy new running shoes when you have about 600 to 1000 kilometers on them. (That’s very easy to keep track of if you use a running app or training diary.)
Fanatics who walk 25 kilometers every week should therefore buy new shoes after about 40 weeks. Running shoes have already lost more than 35 percent of their original cushioning, increasing the risk of injury.
Do you not accurately keep track of how many sporty kilometers or hours you have already put on it? You can often see and feel by your sports shoes whether it is time for new ones.
Are (the soles of) your cross trainers very flexible? Get rid of it! Cross trainers must provide your feet with enough support so that your feet can also remain in position during lateral movements. With intensive use, ie several times a week, these shoes last on average a little less than a year.
Worn soles are the sign of both running shoes and cross trainers that the time has come to say goodbye to them.
