How long does it take you to go through a pair of sneakers?

It takes me about a year. That is when I need a new pair of sneakers, but I always wait until they are falling off my feet because they are expensive. Right now, mine have holes in them and the soles are really flat. I like to get sneakers on sale at Amazon.com Sometimes I can get sneakers I would normally pay over a hundred dollars for at $25-$37. That is such a blessing. I have wide feet, so I cannot wear just any brand of sneakers. What brand do you wear and for width, is E the same as EW? I used to get them in EW, and now I cannot find them EW. It seems like they may have changed EW to E.

If I'm lucky, sneakers last me about one year too. It's often better to try them out first, but I sometimes buy them online. I usually rely on the shape of the shoe for choosing the width, I didn't know there were special measurements for that. I look at what I might like, so I don't look at the brand.

In the USA, there are different widths. I wish I could buy what I like in looks, but they don't always fit.

@MsBooklover I always imagine the shoes on my feet, so if they didn't look good, I wouldn't like them.

I just order the navy blue ones because they were a lot cheaper. I use them for work, too....actually, I use them for everything.

I just bought three pairs of sneakers about 3 years ago. They all have good bottoms and tops. They look good to be honest. I wear boots in the winter and slipper in the summer. I only wear sneakers in the fall between seasons. So my sneakers will be good for a while to come. I refuse to buy more while they still look like that. Now a hole in the many where would be trash. I only buy sneakers for under $25

I just got my favorite sneakers on sale for $25.99. I would love to be able to get cheap sneakers on a regular basis.

It really depends on the cost of the shoe. If I opt to get a cheap shoe say at Walmart, I can go through those in a matter of about 6 weeks to 2 months. More expensive and better-made shoes tend to last me almost forever or at least a year.

I bought a pair at Walmart for about $10, and had to take them back. They became painful.

As long as they can be used, I use it. I think I remember the most is 2-3 years I believe..

Since I am working at home, my sneakers will last for a long period of time. It doesn't require to wear a pair of sneakers while having online stunts.
