I looked though TW and checked out the shoes. Right now I wear a nice pair of $50 Nikes everywhere I go. But I looked at most of the shoes and they are in the $80-$120 range. My coach told me that if I get a hardcore tennis shoe, I should get a shoe with a 6month sole gurantee. He told me that there is going to be a hole in my soles by 6 months, which is why I should. Do these $100 shoes seriously last only 6-9months?? I would not wear these shoes to school. I would only wear them for tennis. I play about 3 times a week and I am a high 3.5 (rated by my coach) baseline singles player.
