Wearing worn-out shoes

The cushioning properties of even the best sports shoes break down with use. This can lead to discomfort and eventually injury, especially if you’re overweight. There’s no mystery to knowing when it’s time for a new shoe; if you see worn areas on the soles, it’s time to get yourself a new pair. To get the best fit, shop in the afternoon when your feet are biggest, wear the socks you’ll be walking in, make sure there’s a little space between your big toe and the end of the shoe, and walk around the store to be sure the heel doesn’t slip.
