How many pairs do I have now?
This is pair #5. Pairs 1 & 2 are out to pasture, only used for playing outside or grocery shopping. Pair #3 will continue on, assuming it performs, through November. Come December I will exclusively use pairs 4 and 5, and pair #5 will go to the marathon.
Running shoes last 200-500 miles depending on the shoe, how you run and how heavy you are. I keep 2 pairs in rotation to reduce wear and make sure each pair is fully dry before wearing again. I learned that it is good to have a dark pair and a light pair so that you can tell them apart at 5:10am when the lights are off. Brooks Adrenaline have been good to me for many years and I love the new purple colors.
