MT101 durability?

I got my first pair in February and they alleviated my shin splints. Now after running in them 1-3 miles/day 3-4 days/week my shin splints have returned, and I'm wondering if the sneakers are the cause? Does anyone know how often these need to be replaced in comparison with more mainstream/cushioned running shoes?

Thanks!

I run in mt101s and love them. I ended my shin splints and plantar fasciitis, but not because of the shoes. It was because I changed my foot strike when running. I adopted a mid foot strike instead of heel and my problems went away.

What type foot strike do you use? Is this style new to you? If you have changed to "barefoot" style running you need to ease into it. (Edit: re-read and saw you started in Feb with the mt101's.)

Re: MT101 durability?

I switched to a mid/forefoot strike back when I purchased them. It is odd that the pain came back recently as I feel pretty comfortable with that method since using it for the past six months. That's why I was wondering if the shoes need replacing, as a possible solution.

I have recently been running on several more aggressive trails lately, maybe that is the cause instead? Aggressive meaning more rapid ascents/descents and roots/rocks, etc.

Sounds more like the trails than the shoes IMHO
