I have Strava nagging me to buy new shoes, because the manufacturers recommend buying new ones after 500k or whatever.

Hmm, product manufacturer recommends buying more products.
What a surprise!

I wonder how much it costs to have Strava as a shop-front partner?

My running shoes are still in good condition but just looking... and that throws up all sorts of other 'suggested searches' such as 'Is it ok to walk in running shoes?'

Is it OK to walk in running shoes?
In general, running shoes have more cushioning in the heel and forefoot. ... You don't necessarily need this in walking shoes. Just as it's vital that you wear the right shoes for running, it's important to wear the correct shoes for walking. The right shoes can help prevent injury and make walking more enjoyable.

And 'Is it bad to walk in running shoes?'

Is it bad to walk in running shoes?
Walking in a running shoe, which often has less cushion, could lead to impact injuries like plantar fasciitis, stress fractures, and Achilles tendinitis.

So it's not ok to walk in running shoes, because they have more cushioning. And it's bad to walk in running shoes, because they have less cushioning. Isn't the internet full of shit?

Sounds very much like the Daily Mail Oncology Project.  Do running shoes prevent cancer or increase the risk of your house price getting it?
