    As stated in title, how is the durability of the Nike Air Zoom Breathe Free? I know they won't be as durable as the Air Resolve, but is the durability of the Breathe Free any good?

    Thanks

    Not too bad. Also, why the concern over sole durability since the shoes have a 6 months warranty anyway? Just keep your receipt.

    After 6 months of playing 3 or 4 times a week they are starting to wear on the forefoot. That might be because of my bad footwork according to @wright.

    Are you referring to the Breathe Free that have the 6 month warranty. I am not aware that the Breate Free have a 6 month warranty. I know the Air Resolve have a 6 month warranty. If the Breathe Free have a 6 month warranty, then that would be pretty good.

    Thanks

    I was just kidding, TS. PCMD, the ACMI's seem to be a little more durable than the Breathes on the sole. The Breathes uppers are a little more resistent to court rash than the ACMI's. I like the overall feel of the ACMI's better, the Breathes come up a little too high on my ankle.

    Just buy three or four Breathe Free's and you'll be set for the week :)

    I live in Kingwood. I have been getting out to play a couple of times during the day. I'm jobless so I spend most of my time indoors sending out my resume and making calls.

    finished the school year on friday...

    how do u guys think the breathe free's durability compares with the figjams? do they last longer?

    i might get either, and i have never tried them on before, so i need some second opinions.

    Breathes are less durable at fuirst glance, because my figjams didn't wear out as quickly as breathes, but the heel gets eaten up fast

    I think they have been pretty durable.

    I hit atleast 4 hours a day with them, sometimes on clay.

    Well, the uppers seem to be holding up very well, but the sole is wearing out... Of course, I do slide (on hardcourt :shock: ) and I am very aggresive with my footwork.

    Nothing amazing in durability, but it won't fall apart the first 3 weeks you have them
