    You are gonna get a range of answers here. From extreme players that last maybe a month or two, to casual players that last from 8mo-12mo.

    Usually around 6 months ( I play two times a week). For the past 2 years I have used Adidas Baricade III, Nike Breathe Free II, Reebok Match Day Pump, and currently I'm using Baricade IV.

    3-4 months.

    BFIIs lasted 3, air max resolve plus lasted 4 (including the 1 month i had a broken foot)...my Breathe 3's are lasting longer than i thought...but i think that's because im not playing as much

    If I wore the same pair of shoes everytime I played, probably 2 months. That's why I currently have 7 pairs in rotation. :D

    something between 4 and 8 months, depending on the shoe quality.
    My actual Xpoint II`s are 8 months old, but they are in very bad condition right now (they last just 4 months in good shape). I play 2 or 3 times a week.

    Shoes like breathe frees and such (lightweight, speed types), I'll finish those in like 2 months, using them as match day shoes.

    Tanks like barricades take me 4-6 months, using them as practice shoes.

    Wait, you live in Europe but there's not a single clay court in your entire country? Which country do you live in? I thought clay courts were all over continental Europe and is the predominant surface, no?
