Shoe Expiration Date

I often ask my patients how old their athletic shoes are, and many times they are unsure. I have started asking them to write the date of their purchase on the tongue of the shoe with a permanent marker. If they encounter problems, I ask them to bring in their shoes to inspect for any unusual wear patterns and confirm the age of the shoe. This allows me to instruct them about replacing their shoes about every 6 months and takes the guesswork out of how old their shoes are.
