4 Tips To Take Care Of Your Running Shoes

Running shoes are an important investment. Whether you are a passionate or an occasional runner. Injury caused by inappropriate shoes can needlessly derail your running goals. Investing in a quality running shoe can help you to prevent foot and ankle damage, and make your workout a more pleasant and comfortable experience. But once you have made that investment, it's also important that you maintain those shoes properly so you can enjoy them for a long time. Here are some helpful tips.


1. Only wear your shoes for running

Although your running shoes may be very comfortable, don't wear your running shoes for anything other than running. Even if you are just walking around, you are still wearing out the cushioning. When you begin to feel that your shoes are losing their bounce it’s time to replace them before their material breakdown leads to injury.

2. Clean your running shoes on a regular base

Running outside can make your shoes really dirty. Grass, mud, leaves or water can leave stubborn stains behind. Also sweat during your work-out can seriously affect the condition of your shoes. Leaving your running shoes muddy and sweaty after a run can damage the rubber, weaken the stitching and become a breeding ground for mold. To maintain the quality of your shoes for as long as possible and to keep them fresh we recommend proper care and cleaning. Here are some cleaning steps:

1. Remove the laces and the insoles.
2. Brush away the mud and dirt from your shoes with a cleaning brush.
3. Clean your running shoes with Mister Minit Sneaker Cleaner and let them air dry at room temperature.
4. Protect them against mud and water by applying Sneaker Anti-dirt.
5. Treat your shoes with Sneaker Fresh to remove bad odors.
