    So this is my first time returning shoes with a 6 month warranty, so I'm not exactly sure what qualifies, i looked at the other threads but none of the pics have the back worn through. I wore the back parts down to the air max.

    Also one more question, if I got them at the Nike employee store do i have to return them there?

    Here are the pics (I turn and slide with my heel):

    yeah that's definitely good enough, as long as you've worn through to the midsole they'll take it, even if you've barely done it

    I created the thread regarding on the shoe warranty
    Post pics before you claim the warranty and let us know wether Nike grant your warranty or not.
    I think it's good enough but somewhat reason, I can't 100% guarantee on heel weariness. Feel like it can be worn a little more.

    Ahh it's one of the most comfortable shoes ever - for some reason I think it's the best colorway as well - I've got mine in February .... I play 5days a week , but minimal wear & tear ... I don't think I can claim warranty ... but yours surely do qualify ....

    Did you wear those shoes casually? The reason I ask is because I haven't seen tennis shoes wear out in the heel before the forefoot. Only with skate, and casual shoes.

    It looks like you would still have a long ways to go if you tried to wear through the fore foot.

    I only use tennis shoes for games and I have similar heel wear problem. Also drag my right toe so heel and toe area worn most.

    Or you're wearing your shoes backwards. I've never seen heel wear like that without equal or worse toe wear. Crazy.

    I only wore it for tennis. Let's see, when i'm running and have to change directions i slide with my heels and push off with them. I don't knwo if that helps to explain it.

    This is the first time that I can remember where the heels of my shoes were worn out before the toe areas were. I usually just wear these for tennis. I would also wear them to work on days in which I would play afterwards, but I usually sit at my desk most of the time, so I don't do a lot of casual walking with them. BTW, are these also good enough to return for a warranty as well?
