Alternate Two Pairs of Shoes

Many sources recommend running in different shoes every other day. If you can't purchase two pairs of shoes at one time, expert runners suggest buying a new pair of shoes halfway through the life of your current pair. Alternating your running shoes gives the cushioning foam a more time to “recover” between uses, and theoretically increases the life expectancy of the shoes.

One thing to remember is not to alternate between a new pair of running shoes and an old pair. Shoes wear down easily, and you want to maintain the cushion and support in your shoes for proper injury prevention.
