Replace Your Shoes (Not Your Knees)

To avoid injuries, write an "expiration date" on your shoes
as soon as you buy them. Shoes last about 500 miles, so simply
divide 500 by your average weekly mileage to determine how
many weeks your shoes are likely to last.

    I'm not a runner but had knee problems a few years back. My physical therapist told me to replace them every 6 months. At first I thought she had a deal with Nike or something but as it turns out she was right. After 6 months of PlyoX or walking or TurboFire you definitely need to replace those gym shoes.

    Great tip! I knew I should replace them after a certain number of miles but didn't really think of how to figure it. Math is not my strong suit! emoticon
