nearly every tennis player? what? i didn't realize toe dragging was good form. why would nearly every tennis player drag their toe on a serve? you are standing still in platform stance and only moving your right foot in pinpoint. where does toe dragging figure in to the mix? and yes wearing through any part of the outsole, including the toe box area, is covered under warranty. And I'm also not sure so many people use the warranties. certainly a higher number on this forum since we are serious about tennis, but we only make up a minute percentage of rec players.
