This is a great question, because workout shoes (especially running shoes) are expensive and you can easily spend more than $120/pair. To get more "mileage" from my shoes I rotate them, but not in a way you might expect.
I buy a new pair of running shoes and use them indoors at the gym until they get about 400 miles on them or they are about 6-7 months old. Then I buy a new pair of indoor shoes and move my recently retired shoes to outdoor shoes. I then wear them to and from the gym, the store, etc... for another 6-8 months washing occasionally to keep them clean and the odor down. Then they move to my "lawn mowing" shoes I can get anywhere from 6-9 more months out of them.
Many things can reduce the life expectancy of your running shoes. Weather conditions, running distance, tread wear, washing, etc... can all contribute to hardness of the soles and inner soles making your shoes wear out more quickly.
I hope this helps. Good luck on your journey.
Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels and looks.
