How to Make Your Running Shoes Last Longer

“If the hill has its own name, then it's probably a pretty tough hill."
-Marty Stern

You should replace your running shoes every 300 to 400 miles, However, replacing your running shoes every two months gets expensive. So here are some tips to wear your running shoes only for exercise.

Wear your running shoes only for exercising. Even if you wear your running shoes just for walking around you are still wearing out the cushioning.

Take them on and off properly, do not take off your shoes without undoing the laces. Make sure you loosen your laces before you put your shoes on and off.

Dry your wet shoes properly, if your shoes get wet do not put them on direct heat like a radiator. Heat dries out the leather.Loosen the laces, take out the insoles and let them air dry away from heat.

Alternate shoes, if you run almost every day. It is recommended to rotate between two pairs of running shoes.

Store your shoes properly in a cool, dry place where they can air out.

Do you have any other suggestions to make your sures last longer?
