Here are two  tips for cleaning running shoes very quickly and simply

– Goodbye bad smells: If the inside of your sneakers smells like the feet of a troll who has not seen the shadow of a shower for several months, it is good that there are some bacteria trapped in there. Remove the insole, rub it, and the inside of your sneakers with a damp sponge and mild soap. This will give your running shoes a little freshness. To finish and permanently remove this great odor, generously sprinkle the sole and the inside with a mixture of talc and bicarbonate. Let sit overnight before discarding the mixture and brushing the running and sole again. Also, don’t hesitate to wash the laces. To avoid these odors in the future, consider wearing antibacterial running shoes.

– By brushing, no more mud: After removing the insole, shake them, then use an old brush or a toothbrush with soft bristles and start by rubbing gently in order to remove the bulk of the dirt and dust on and under your shoe. You can do this dry or with warm water and mild soap. Do not hesitate to place newspaper or paper towels in the running to absorb the overflow of water and facilitate drying.

How to choose a running shoe: comfort above all!

When you ask yourself the question of how to choose running shoes the only answer that we should find in priority is, therefore: a comfortable shoe! I’m not necessarily talking about the amount of cushioning of the pump or its drop or any other technical point. No, I’m talking about the footwear. When you put on a pair of running shoes, you should immediately be comfortable, feeling that your foot will adapt well to the shoe.

Not so easy. But if you feel discomfort, that the foot is not placed as it would like in the footwear, it may increase with the race! If you doubt trying it, don’t buy it! And if you purchased online, no problem, you usually have plenty of time to return it. Better to waste a little time and choose your running shoes than to run with an uncomfortable shoe

When should you replace your running shoes?

You will have certainly noticed it, some models of shoes are more robust than others. Therefore, it seems complicated to establish a universal rule which would apply to all brands. One certainty, running shoes do not last forever.

Stay tuned to your body, and do not hesitate to change them at the slightest alert. Unusual pain is often a sure sign.
If you are a “heavy” runner, you will most likely need to change your shoes faster than a “light” runner.
If you can, count the kilometers traveled with each model you own. Strava, Garmin Connect, and many other applications offer to create a list of your equipment to facilitate this monitoring by associating them with your activities.

Pay attention to the visible signs of wear: outsole, mesh, reinforcements. They are generally good indicators of the condition of your shoes.
One last thing, the lighter the shoes, the faster it will be necessary to change them (500 to 600 km). But depending on the model, your weight, and the use you make of it, they can still take you much further (from 800 to 1000 km).
