Can anyone reccommend a pair of tennis shoe from TW that will last more than 6 months that's under $45 (I don't have too much money)? I play about 3x a week and the sole of my current shoe wears out within 1-2 months. The rest of the shoe looks new, except the sole. As a result I have to toss out the whole shoe. I slide a lot so it's a lot of wear and tear on the sole.
Does mattter what brand as long as it's durable.

If you are playing a lot of tennis and are asking for your shoes to last more than six months, then you are asking too much. Players who are tough on shoes even wear through the durability guaranteed shoes within six months.
You can find some great deals on durable shoes by heading to our Liquidation page http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/liquidation.html Looking there I would recommend checking out the following:
Reebok Bonzer II Men's Shoes White/Black 39.99

Wilson ProStaff 700 Low Men's Shoes 39.95

If you have good footwork and play a lot theres no way a pair could last 6 months. Especially sub $45 range shoes... Id get the Nike Breath Free IIs which are $110 but have a 6 month gaurantee on the outsole durability. I have 3 pairs rotate them throughout the year..

I think New Balance have a 1-time replacement, life-time warranty. If it's not them, I know some company offers that.
