Old shoes vs. New shoes
I did not realize that my old Nike Vomero 4+ with around 350 miles were as worn down as they were. The new ones arrived from Running Warehouse and I tried the new on the left foot and the old on the right foot. WOW ! ! !
Discussion from most runners say the shoes only last around 300 miles. I guess I didn't really believe this, but perhaps it is true.
Heal support on the old ones were non-existant compared to the new ones, which may explain the Achilles Tendonitis (which is getting better.)
Here is the visual proof:
Too bad shoes don't come with treadwear indicators :)
