At Brooks, the answer to every question is the run. This means our sole (ha!) focus when designing shoes is executing on creating the best performance running shoes in the business.
Creating an incredible running shoe is all about the details. Materials and techniques that make a shoe great for running can make them wear in ways you might not expect if used for other purposes.
Activities with significant lateral motion, walking and standing for long periods of time may cause unusual wear patterns, and while our shoes will likely provide you with incredible comfort and support for those activities, they may not last as long as shoes with less technical materials may.
When running in our shoes, consider alternating between pairs throughout your weekly runs. Allowing the shoes to dry thoroughly and letting the cushion reset between wears can help you get more miles out of each pair.
Brooks Running shoes have a functional life of 300-500 miles or 3-6 months. After that time it's a good idea to replace your shoes for the highest performance.
