Why Should I Replace My Shoes So Often? By Moab, UT’s Favorite Podiatrist

Why Should I Replace My Shoes So Often By Moab UT Favorite Podiatrist Runners, athletes and your average colleague at the office in Moab, Utah, are all guilty of wearing shoes past their expiration date. While it’s difficult to justify breaking the bank on a new pair of supportive trainers or comfy work shoes, your feet could pay for it in the long run.

Improper, worn-out footwear is a common cause of painful heel spurs. This calcium buildup on the heel bone can create inflammation and stabbing pain from your heel to the ball of your foot when you stand, walk, run or jump.

How Often Should I Replace My Shoes?

To avoid risks of injury, such as heel spurs or plantar fasciitis, I advise my patients to replace their shoes every six months on average. Your lifestyle and activity level will also impact how long your shoes last. A simple test, next time you’re in the store, is to try on a pair of new dress shoes or sneakers and compare to your old ones. If you notice a difference in comfort, it’s probably time for new shoes. Depending on your unique lifestyle and activity level, we can help you find the best shoes for your needs in Moab, UT.

At Animas Foot & Ankle in Moab, UT, we’re here to help you live comfortably. If you experience any symptoms of heel spurs or heel pain, call us at 970.259.3154 or request an appointment at one of our four convenient podiatry offices, including Moab, Utah (UT).
