There are many ways by which we can judge that our shoes need to be replaced. And we are going to discuss them in detail in this blog.

1. Shoe is permanently stained

If the shoe has some stain marks and these stain marks are not fading then it's time to change to new shoe pair. Stained shoes give a bad impression on others.

2. Time period

Shoes also have a lifetime. After a specific time period shoe worn out. For example regular used jogging shoes can be used for around 1 year only. After that, they will wear out. While on the other hand leather boot can last for more than 5 years easily.

3. Disattached shoe sole

Sometimes after getting wet our shoe sole got disattached from shoe front. This can be fixed by using some strong adhesive. But this is not a good practice as shoe sole will again disattach soon.

4. Smelly shoes

Shoes stink if we have used their whole day or we had done some strenuous activity like exercise or running in them. This smell can be removed by putting shoes in sunlight for some time.

But shoes which are used regularly for a long time can have the problem of constant smell. These old shoes should be replaced.

6. Cracks starting to appear on outer sole

Shoe material of all types becomes weak with time due to constant contact with water, sunrays, dirt, dust etc. This makes material weak and it started to become thin. With time cracks start to appear in shoes. These cracks cant be repaired or stopped from developing. So it's time to buy new running shoes.

A shoe is a tool, and as such, it should be replaced when it no longer functions properly. The most obvious sign that a shoe needs to go is when the sole starts to separate from the upper. This creates two issues: 1) The shoe gets very hard to walk in and 2) You lose protection against the elements (rain, snow, etc). Another common mistake people make is wearing old shoes with high arches and pronation. If you have high arches and pronate (i.e., your foot rolls inward at the heel), then you need stability shoes with motion control features (e.g., dual density midsoles). If you have low arches and supinate (i.e., your foot rolls outward at the heel), then you need cushioned shoes which can be found at with extra support in the midfoot area. If you have normal arches and do not pronate or supinate (or if you are lucky enough to have both types of feet), then you can wear either type of shoe depending on personal preference or what's available in your size at any given time.
