Is it normal for shoes to wear out every 3 months?
I tend to walk everywhere unless I am going to work and i am late. I have to buy a new pair of shoes every 3 months due to them wearing out.

If you walk a lot, I think that’s normal..

There are many variables to be considered such as the style and composition of the shoe, the weight of the wearer, the distance traveled and the surface walked upon. Leather soles tend to wear out quickly.
Considering the factors, I assume most people get more than ninety days from a pair of shoes. Consider changing styles or purchasing a more expensive style to prolong the life of your shoes.

pounding the pavement can WEAROUT shoes
HAVE TO that is ones ASSESSMENT
my perspective is there is no NORMAL but rather an AVERAGE or bell curve example the doctor does a BLOOD test there is not a SINGLE set number as NORMAL what is given is a RANGE say 10,000 to 14,000 WBC

No, it isn't. Of course, it depends on the shoe, how many miles you actually walk, and if you have more than one pair of shoes at a time.
Running shoes, for example, should last at least 300 miles. Most decently-made leather dress shoes will last 2-5 year if wore regularly. The sole may need replacing at 2 years -- the leather upper should last at least 5.
if your shoes are wearing out, you might want to consider the material, the make, and the cost. It might serve you better to purchase more expensive but better made shoes.

I have many, many pairs, (too many!!!), so I just keep rotating them. Very occasionally I might get a pair resoled. But they last forever.

If they are cheaply made shoes, yes.
Valet in Las Vegas change insoles every 3 months in good shoes which last about a year.

Through constant wear, sure.
