1. How much do they weigh?
The shoes are sold in Unisex sizes. A Men’s 8/Women’s 9.5. weighs 9.5 ounces.
2. Can I wear my orthotics with Reshod Walking Shoes?
If you generally wear over-the-counter orthotics and experience discomfort or stability problems, consider trying your Reshod Walking Shoes without them for a while. Most over-the-counter footbeds and inserts provide the same support as the midsole unit, and the extra weight and height of the extra insert can be too much. However, if you have been prescribed a specific orthotic for a leg length discrepancy or other unique issue, keep using them. They will fit just fine in your Reshod Walking Shoes.
3. How long will it take to adjust to my Reshod Walking Shoes?
Reshod Walking Shoes may encourage the activation of dormant or weak muscles, so as with anything new, we recommend an adjustment period of one to two weeks before you try to race in them. Use your whole foot when you walk – land on the back of your heel and be sure to roll all the way over onto your toes with each stride. When you do, you’ll notice these shoes drive you forward, allowing you to take a longer or more powerful stride. Be sure to stretch well before and after your workout.
4. How long will my Reshod shoes last?
The midsole components are designed to last the same amount of time as a traditional training athletic shoe, which is 400-600 miles or 6 months, depending on how many miles you log per week. However, a visual inspection is the best indicator. Check the tread of the outsole. If you have worn down the lugs, that’s a good sign it’s time for a new pair. Another clue is that you’re not getting that “bounce in your step” anymore. Maybe your legs feel more fatigued then usual. One way to increase the longevity of your shoes is to buy two pair and rotate them. This gives the foam more time to relax back to it’s original shape.
5. Is it okay to throw these in the washing machine?
We recommend washing these shoes by hand only.
