Run Gear Improvements - Shoes

How could we make the Gear section of Strava better for Runners? What additional features would you like to see around tracking your shoes? 

Thanks for sharing your feedback with us!

  • I spent unnecessary time trying to edit a shoe name to the correct casing and as somebody else surmised it looks like my shoe name upper / lower case gets relegated to the first entry that somebody puts in. This seems a little dumb. If I'm first to enter my new kicks as (Salomon) xA eNduRO everybody else that has those shoes gets forced to have the name look that way. Admittedly fixing this will not make me run faster, but it sure seems half-assed.  A cheesy hack to get around is toss some extra spaces in your shoe name so (I guess) it gets stored as its own entry.  On the site itself, your shoes' name will get displayed where extra spaces are suppressed even if behind the scenes the extra spaces are stored in the database itself.

  • Adding a rock to the pile, I almost agree on all things said in this thread like :

     - mutli-gear activities, parts tracking, etc ...

     - editable case-sensitive name and mileage and nicknames

     ...

    One thing I read only once and is important to me. It would be really nice to show, in activity page, gear mileage at the time an activity was done, not the current mileage (when displaying old activities).

    I don't know if this data is already stored but it may permit to correlate gear use and performance or injury.

  • When I sum up kilometers manualy from all activities connected with shoes, I have different distance from summary in Strava.
    For exmaple I have "new" shoes with only 24 activities. Manualy I calculated 230km, but Strata show me 219km.

  • Strava appears to recalculate the mileage on shoes as you add and remove them from activities, so you if you change the shoe, the mileage on the previous shoe is reduced by the activity distance and the mileage on the newly selected shoe is increased by the same amount. This makes sense, except that when they get out of sync, they will remain out of sync. One way this appears to happen is that a walking activity is automatically uploaded from by Garmin activity tracker and assigned the default shoe, but the mileage on that shoe is not affected. However, if you change the shoe for that activity, the mileages for the 2 shoes are changed as above.

    It's difficult to tell if they are really out of sync or incorrectly assigned, but the numbers do not match the totals in my Garmin Connect account. I trust the totals in Garmin because I can see all the activities that a shoe has been assigned to, and I can manually check the total. So, one improvement that Strava can make is to have the ability to see all the activities that each shoe has been assigned to.

  • Alberto, thanks for your adivce.
    You're probably right, I did the test: I modified all trainings with my problematic shoes: i chaged those shoes to another ones, and then (without any running activities) my shoes had milage 3.2km. Now (after returning changes) milage of those shoes is more similar to real (at the begining milage of those shoes are too small). But I can't find activity with this shoes.

  • piotr: not a huge help, but veloviewer lets you search and filter by gear

  • You can filter by shoe for running.

  • thanks for yours advices, but:

    if i am right, i can search by gear only for runing,

    and propably i have got lost activity connected with no running act. (like walking or workout) with my shoes and i cant find it

  • Andrew, thanks for the link, it was really useful.

    The activities assigned to each shoe are the same in Strava and Garmin Connect, but the mileages are different. Looks like the Strava totals have got out of sync and are wrong. Hope this gets fixed soon, but I can use Garmin Connect to track my shoes for now. Will only be an issue if I switch brands for my tracker.

  • I managed to recreate the issue with incorrect mileage for hikes and walks.

    When a walk or hike is uploaded, it is assigned the default shoe but the mileage on that shoe is not updated. However, when the shoe for the activity is changed to another shoe, the mileage of the previously assigned shoe is decreased and the mileage of the newly assigned shoe is increased.

    This also happens when a walk or hike is added manually, and also it appears that the mileage of a shoe is not affected when the activity is deleted. This gave me an idea on how to "correct" the mileage of a shoe.

    1. Create a dummy shoe called something like "unassigned" and make it the default shoe.

    2. Add a manual activity for a run and the set the distance to the mileage you want to add to a particular shoe - this will increase the mileage on the dummy shoe so that it can be transferred to another shoe!

    3. Add a manual activity for a walk and set the distance to the mileage you want to add to a particular shoe - this will not increase the mileage of the dummy shoe.

    4. Once added, edit the activity for the walk and change the shoe to the one you want the mileage added to, and save - this will transfer the mileage from the dummy shoe to the newly assigned shoe.

    5. Delete the manual activities for the run and the walk.

    You may want to add a large number of miles to the dummy shoe so that they can be used to correct future discrepancies, as this happen again when another walk or hike activity is uploaded or manually added.

    Obviously, it would be better if this hack wasn't needed and that Strava showed the correct mileage...

  • Clearly you are taking in a lot of data about Makes, Brand and how many miles each shoe is lasting as a average, it would be great to be able to see a list of shoes and what mileage and value you can get out of them to help you decide on new shoes, i have noted that quality of shoes have reduced recently so getting a robust shoe was important to me.

    Im sure Strava could make a commercial advantage out of that.with that data and add it to ratings of different shoes / brands.

  • I see that there is a lot of suggestions for being able to add miles to shoes upfront and collecting more data for shoes such as average pace in that shoe and everything dating back to 2014 on this forum but those changes have not been implemented. It would be really helpful if I could at least start a show with some pre-existing miles on that shoe so I can have the accurate data when looking at my shoes and the miles I have run in them.

  • Please stop forcing case changes on gear. It's annoying that I have to add random spaces in to shoe names to avoid someone else's incorrect capitalisation.

  • Let us take pictures of our shoes... then we can post tread wear over the mileage of the shoe life. The best I can do now is to embed it into a run, then I would have to scroll my activity feed to find it.

  • It would be great if next to shoe notation on any run if it had the mileage of that shoe at the time of that run. Maybe just parentheses after the shoe name.

  • How are shoes ordered on your profile? I have four pairs of shoes, 3 of which are Altras, yet the order is:

     

    Altra

    Altra

    Salomon

    Altra

     

    They aren't ordered alphabetically by model, numerically by distance or by date added either... Maybe just a hierarchical alphabetical ordering based on brand followed by model?
