How much wear can you get out of a pair of running shoes before you need a new pair and does the surface you run on make a difference?

The general rule is 800k (500 miles). The best test is to push the cushioning on the heel where you impact the most (look for wear and tear). If you can push the cushioning easily then its time to put the poor shoe down! Imagine the cushioning like a car’s shock absorbers. As soon as they do not offer any resistance they have gone past their sell by date.
