I am looking for something lighter and is more durable. I wore through these the first time in about a month and the second time in about a month and a half. I was looking at these shoes and am wondering if you guys think there good..

Thanks for all the help!

If you have other shoes that you think are good tell me about them.

You really cannot buy a good pair of tennis shoes without knowing what your feet are like. Do you have high arches? Do your ordinary shows show wear on the outside rear of the heel? Stuff like that. Do some searches on "fitting feet to correct tennis shoešnd that should help you figure out what you need. Then we can get into brand names.
But don't mess around with this; most injuries occur around your feet and you want to make sure that you get the shoes you need to reduce the likelihood of this happening.

Low arches but I put arch supports in my shoes. My shoes wear down on the toe.

These will help you get off on the right foot, so to speak. I have pronated feet, which is why I have the shoes I have. I was fitted for them at a local tennis store, by people who specialize in footwear. These are by far the best tennis shoes I've ever worn, and like the review on them says, they can indeed be worn right out of the box with no breaking in period.
