Exactly what it sounds like. You drag your to into your shot and/or after your shot.

Holes on the inner for sure! The Propulse 3 was my biggest mistake, I made a hole on the inner of thoes shoes so quick is wasn't even funny!

When you run and stop the inside of the soles, take quite a beating, the outside is more sturdier.

This applies for running forwards and sideways, and since this is usually what happens the most in tennis the toe area will always wear down quicker, and when you turn your feet for the forehand it ruins the toes as well.

Make the toe part more durable, Nike.

I think a persons weight really contributes to rate of wear.....

Judging from all your post, you don't seem to know anything about tennis...

Gravity + sand in the paint on the court

personally, quick changes of direction would be the main culprit.
