Why It’s Bad: “I see many runners who get close to a race and think ‘I better get a new pair of sneakers!’” says NYC-based sports podiatrist Lori Weisenfeld, DPM. But even if you purchase the exact same model, running in fresh sneakers can give you blisters or shin splints simply because they haven’t been broken in yet. “I tell patients to never opt for new shoes in a competitive or distance situation,” explains Dr. Weisenfeld.

What to Do Instead: Once you find a sneaker brand and model that works well for you, purchase several pairs and alternate usage, advises Dr. Weisenfeld. This means you’ll always have a backup come race day.
