An Australian podiatrist has revealed exactly how often you should replace your runners.

The Daily Mail Australia website reported that Sarah Sweeney, founder of Sarah Sweeney Podiatry, advised the average person to change their shoes every six to 12 months - while marathon runners should replace their shoes every three months.

Ms Sweeney said if your shoes start to tear, if you feel unsupported, or if the shoes feel 'loose', it's likely time to replace your runners.
