Hi Strava Product Team,

Feature Request: Add support for multiple shoes at one (running) activity

Reasoning: Usually at some type of training I use different shoes to warmup/cool down, and a different shoes pair to the main focus of that training.
It would be great to have a feature to choose multiple shoes pairs for a single activity. Allowing to choose the activity time when we swap them to give the correct KMs for each pair.
For example: Pair 1 from 00:00 to 15:00 (4 KM), Pair 2 from 15:01 to 40:00 (8 KM), Pair 1 from 40:01 to 50:00 (2,5 KM).
It will add 6,5KM to the Kilometrage of Pair 1 and 8 KM to the Kilometrage of Pair 2.

Thank you!

Thanks for submitting your idea on the ability to add multiple shoes to a run. It has been reviewed and approved.

I should add that changing shoes is reasonably common in longer ultrarunning races. I've done that a few times myself. With the way it is currently implemented on Strava, one of the pairs ends up with more than actual mileage while another doesn't get enough mileage. To make that worse, Strava doesn't allow to manually update the shoe mileage.

Agreed, definitely useful on ultras.

It would be nice to be able to select multiple items from gear for an activity. For example, when doing a track session, the WU and CD will be done on different shoes than the main workout itself. It would than also be great to select the distance ran on each shoe, for example with a slider to select the parts ran on the different shoes, just like when creating a segment setting the in and out points. This will lead to a more accurate tracking of milage per pair of shoes, instead of logging the whole training on one pair

Agreed. Especially useful for track workouts with long Wu and cde. Currently have to split into multiple activities to get accurate shoe mileage.
