With the distances I have been putting in lately the bottoms of the shoes are wearing pretty fast. How can I prevent this from happening?

I use shoe goo, not sure if you can get it here though, I had some sent over to me from home because I'm really hard on running shoes.

That stuff is hard to find even in the USA because I've heard it doesn't work.

Buy shoes that have more support in the heel and don't pronate (if that is your problem). Other than that buy the thickest soled runners you can find. You could switch to shoes like heavy basketball shoes or a heavy all purpose type of shoe, basketball shoes will last 3 times what running shoes would last, but do you want to run in that type of shoe?

"fast getwaways" !?!?? bwahaha ... taking up purse snatching to supplement your ESL income ??? ... Shouldn't be too difficult to find the shirtless foreigner running around .

Seriously, I thought thing were cheaper over in the Philippines ???

Some guy in my town was going on about how he was going to buy a bunch of electronics stuff in Cebu for real cheap & sell it for a profit here in Korea.

get them re soled by a street urchin. I've had my hiking shoes done four time in the last four years and theyre still ok.

anyway, i sort of dont see what the issue is here? youre shoes are wearing out because youre using them a lot?

if you were a weight trainer youd get through alot of food, maybe 300,000 a month more that i am.

if you played the cello, yd have to change your string at about 200, 000 a go every couple of months or less.

i ride a motor cycle. i have to change the tyres etc.

if your shoes are wearing out, buy new ones and stop being cheap. its your hobby. or just run less.

Run bare foot?

Change your running stance?

Wrap cloths around your trainers?

Tap metal sheet to the bottom of them so you sound like a trotting horse!

Rent a local to give you a piggyback?

Whenever I think of a barefoot runner I always think of him.

Sounds to me like you need custom orthotics.

If your problem is outside of your heels wearing out faster (I had same problem with my boots, all that marching in the army), then there's nothing simple you can do. It's just the way you were born. You could probably have a major surgery to set your legs straight but that would be stark raving bonkers. Smile

No doctor is going to perform surgery because the outside of your heals wear out faster. Smile Unless you go to maybe India or someplace like that for it.
