Love your old pair of tennis shoes? Find out why you may want to replace that torn-up pair of shoes with newer, more comfortable footwear.

While you may feel out of your comfort zone without your trusty pair of shoes, hanging on to them can put you at risk for injury. As time passes, running shoes start losing stability as well as impact-absorption capabilities. Replacing them is the answer.

Failure to replace shoes can result in:

  • Daily aches and pains
  • Sprained ankles
  • Soreness
  • Falls resulting in fractures

Remember to replace your shoes with new ones by marking your calendar or picking out a few pairs at one time. Doing so will keep you pain-free and give you the comfort you need for a great workout and a healthy lifestyle.

If you suffer a foot or ankle injury, make an appointment with a Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine doctor by calling (877) 619-9494 or visit our appointment request page by clicking here.
