Advice On Buying Sports Shoes

Advice from sports scientists and physiotherapists is that sports shoes should be changed every 350 to 550 miles. This figure depends on the sport that the sports shoes are used for, the terrain (i.e. field, concrete or basketball court) and the individual wearing them (their size and weight).
