Whether you run, walk, or skip, if you're hitting the pavement most days this summer, the tread of your shoes is probably going to run down way before your shoes actually start to look worn out.
Appearances can be deceiving, and shoes that still look nice on top may not be providing the same amount of support as they did when you first got them.
"One tell-tale sign that you need new running shoes is if the treads, especially on the soles, are worn-out. The soles last longer than the shoe's cushioning and shock absorbency, so if the soles are worn down, it's definitely time for new ones. You should never run in shoes that have worn-down soles. Save them for working in the garden or mowing the lawn." —Christine Luff, Very Well Fit
