Runners and gym-goers should wear their sneakers for workouts only, warns Henwood. While it may be tempting to keep your gear on after a sweat session, logging extra miles in your kicks adds unnecessary wear and tear and shortens their lifespan, which typically only lasts about 500 miles. After your workout, change your shoes and socks, Henwood adds. “You’ll extend the life of your sneakers and also ward off fungus caused by moisture and heat between the toes, which can lead to odor and athlete's foot.”
