It is funny how old sports medicine myths continue to get debunked at an ever quickening pace.
The latest research indicates that ALTERNATING BETWEEN 2 OR MORE PAIRS OF RUNNING SHOES REDUCED THE CHANCES OF INJURY BY 39% in a group of recreational runners. Even alternating between two pairs of the same model reduced injury risk. Researchers explained that the differences in each pair of shoes keeps one body part from experiencing too much pressure. Alternating shoes allows for a more even distribution of pressure. So make sure to double up on your running shoes.
