Have you ever noticed that one side of the bottom of your sneaker’s heel can be more worn-down than the other after a couple months of use? It’s a very normal phenomenon, according to Jane Pontious, DPM, chair of the department of podiatric surgery at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine. Your heel, positioned directly below your body, supports all of your weight. We all walk slightly differently, so it makes sense that some people may lean more on one side of the shoe than the other.

However, that doesn’t make it healthy for your foot and ankle to be put in this imbalanced position in the long-term. “People will look at the sneaker and say, ‘Well, it’s new,’ and I’ll say, ‘Look at the heel. You’re no longer standing normally, so you have to replace it,’” says Dr. Pontious.
