If you run enough, you already know this, but shoes eventually wear out. And when they do, you're at increased risk of injury caused by the breakdown of shoe construction and materials, especially the midsole, which is where most cushioning is.
For any pair of shoes, you add to Strava, you can receive an email notification when you reach a specific mileage to remind you it's time for a new pair. Shoe notifications are managed from the gear page and can only be done from the Strava website.
To get there:
1. Click on your profile picture, and from the dropdown menu, click on Settings
2. Click on My Gear from the left-hand side of the page.
3. Click on the name of the shoe you'd like to edit the notifications for. From here, you can either change the mileage for your reminder or turn the notification off completely.
More information about shoe notifications:
- The default mileage for notifications is 250 miles and can be edited to up to 800 miles. This can be changed at any time.
- You will continue to receive notifications after you've reached the threshold for every run where that shoe is selected unless you retire the shoe or turn the notification off from the Shoe Edit screen.
