My wife spent $$$ on top of the line NB and I do not believe there is a wear guarantee.

I think it's just "if you're not satisfied, send them back."

I think the wording is, "longer than any other outsole."

I'm still sad over the demise of the NB 780. Was the best court shoe I ever had. I'm in an 803 now. They are so-so. Next I'll try the 782.

Try the 1003, or get the 1002 on close-out price ASAP online.

they do come with 6month guarantee. i got the 1002 and 2nd pair was free. downside is waiting for them to ship it.

The NB1002 were the best out of the NB range for me.

The NB1002 is a very good shoe but the outsole durability is very bad as I have commented on in previous posts - check them out. Basically by 40 h of tennis, the outsole underneath the ball of the foot is bald which means you are running on marbles on a claycrt! The durability issue forced me into choosing another shoe even with the NB guarantee which I cannot be bothered using. I am now using the Nike Air Max Breathe Cages. They are more responsive in the forefoot, comfortable and have far better outsole durability than the NB1002s.

Happy hitting everyone!

i thought the nb1002 were great. for me the outsole didnt wear out until about a year, but once it starts to it goes bad very quickly. so comfortable though. i would definitely try them. i would get the 1003 but too expensive.
