We hand-picked this because: running on worn-out shoes can lead to injury. The mino tracks every step you take and tells you when your shoes need to be replaced. So try the mino under your insole and run worry-free.
How does mino know when your shoes are worn out?
The mino is calibrated to count 400 miles worth of compressions to the mid-sole of your shoe. It is suggested that you need to swap out full cushion shoes anywhere between 300-500 miles. Shoe manufacturers design running shoes to be worn out in about that many miles. Mino counts compressions instead of miles because each runner is different and can wear through shoes at a different pace. Each mile is counted at 600 steps per mile, which is the average amount of steps a runner makes, so mino takes the average. There are 6 progressive LED’s that light up once you hit a certain amount of compressions per miles you have run. It is recommend to check every 3-4 weeks – just lift up the sock liner, press and hold the blue “O” on mino to display the lights and see how far along you are.

Aaron invented the mino when he suffered a stress fracture from running on worn out shoes. He couldn't keep track of his shoe mileage nor did he want to wait for his next injury so he did some research and mino was born. It fits seamlessly under the sock liner so you won't feel it and automatically tracks every compression so you don't have to. Now runners won't worry about their shoe wear and can run worry-free. Mino is assembled in Massachusetts; almost every part of it is made in America, from the circuit boards to the foam.
