You can get new athletic shoes when the new style comes in, but for individuals who actually workout out, there are signs that it is time to buy some new ones. One of the signs is if you start to experience pain or joint/muscle irritation that you did not have. This is basically telling you that the shoe is breaking down and the support, absorption and the structure of the shoe is not working at its most optimum level. Another sign is if your shoe is used in tennis or basketball where there is a lot of stopping and starting and you need traction traction, it is time to get a new pair. Having traction is crucial in sports that involve a lot of quick starting and stopping, so the condition of your shoes is extremely important. The last sign you should be aware of is if there is any tearing, seams coming apart, or the material is breaking down. If this is happening, you want to get a new pair of shoes before the entire shoe is no longer good and could create an injury. Listen to your body and what the equipment you use says. Yes, shoes are your tools that you need to get the job done, so you always want to keep them in good shape so you can perform at your best ability.
