Hi Maru!

I think any shoe used for working out should be replaced after a while, especially if you don't feel any more cushion or support.

Thanks. I do think the ones I need are cross training. I forgot to mention that I often use my shoes on cement floor not on wood mostly I use it on cement taht is why I believe it wears out quicker that if I use it on wood ground.


About the size the problem taht I have is that I am planning to buy these shoes over the internet so I really cant try them on first. to se if they fit or not in my size. I am a 7 in shoes but is hwy I was thinking in buying a 7.5 on

I wear different shoes for aerobic exercises and jogging. I look for something very low to the ground so as not to twist my ankles when doing aerobics and I wear running shoes or cross trainers for everything else. I'm pretty darn hard on shoes though so I may not have the best of advice. lol

For the "lower number" I mean that shoes are good for 50-80 hours of working out but because you jump on concrete, I'd change them closer to 50 hours.

Well as for the consistency of my work out I dont work out 5 days week though, I do it 2 hrs each saturday and 2 hrs each sunday but at those both times i work out on concrete. So in my case the shoes needede have to have more stability or more cushioning. What u think ?

That makes sense that you wouldn't be able to try them on if you are ordering online; I would make sure to find out what the company's return policy is in case the shoes don't fit though.

Cushioning definitely. The stability really depends on how you step/move. If you look at the bottom of your shoes, are they evenly worn on the bottom or is one side more worn than the other. If they're evenly worn, then you probaby don't need stability but if they're more worn on one side, you either pronate or supinate (start on one side of your foot and end up on the other) and need stability shoes.
