You need 8 hours, shoes requires 24

"Shoes need about 24 hours to recover after a run. While modern midsoles rebound relatively quickly and the loss of cushioning is extremely slight, if you run one evening and then the next day at noon, for example, your shoes will not give you as much protection as shoes that have had a full day's rest. This is especially true if you're covering 50-plus miles a week or doing multiple runs a day. Because life is complicated enough without having to worry about how long your shoes have had to recover, we suggest rotating in another pair. That way your shoes will always be ready when you are" -- Runner'sWorld, Running Shoe FAQ
