    With that kind of wear pattern you should get tougher shoes like CB3.3s

    Nike's make my feet hurt, no matter which pair.

    Haha alright. I'll remember to make sure that I try to slide my foot more evenly in the future.

    wore out my Prince T22s to the midsole in 3 months. Got a new pair from Prince at my door within 10 days. Great customer service!

    I only played with one pair of prince shoes, and the durability was so bad.

    :rolleyes: That's like saying all Nikes have poor durability because of the Vapor-series.

    Got my B7's from adidas last week. Took about 3 weeks from the time I mailed them off. Good timing, too, because I'm about to melt through some shoes with 2 months of camps and lessons coming up.

    That's exactly what my shoe looks like after about 3 months!!!
    The main difference being it only happens to my left shoe. My right shoe is almost always brand new looking. I tend to drag around my left foot a lot for some reason.

    Here are mine, after about 4+ months of use. Though I will say that I did alternate shoes early on, it wasn't until about a month or so ago that I started wearing these shoes every day, and every tennis session.

    Has anyone had any problems with wear on the inside at the heel?

    Thanks,

    Oh yeah, I go through those insoles quicker than the actual shoes...

    Look at my insoles from the shoes I posted:

    Lolz, yeah I think I just wore those insoles out so much that it's pointy at the end when it should be flat. I mean you see holes in both of them, haha.

    I must be really dragging my left foot or something, because the bottom of that shoe is so much more worn than my right. Yet the right foot the insole has a ginormous hole right at the heel.

    do the 4.3's qualify for the guarantee if one of the eyelets is broken (such that you can't tighten the laces to the point where they are stable enough for moving laterally) and there's a lot of white that's exposed on the outsole..?

    Thanks for your comment. I've had them for 5 months. I'll keep them for about 1-2 more weeks then.

    Only 3 weeks left

    Wondering if these have hit the threshold yet? Purchased 12/29, but between winter and a terribly windy spring I haven't worn them much.[​IMG]

    Yea, those should work, wear it just bit more (or use some other method) and they will be perfect for send in.

    How are you guys wearing down the heels so much? When I'm done with my shoes the heels look practically brand new since you're on your toes during tennis.

    Do you guys usually wear them as walking shoes?

    Do you land on your toes, serve only with your toes and hit every shot from your toes? I would look to modify this if the answer to all is yes. My shoes mostly wear down on the inside of both forefeet, left toe and both outside heels. Everyone's wear patterns during tennis are different.

    It will be okay to claim warranty. since the both heel areas exposed midsole.

    Just want to report that I've got the voucher from Nike a few days ago. It took Nike only about 2 days from the time my shoes arrived at their location to inspect the shoes and issue the voucher. A few days later the voucher arrived at my place. Very smooth transaction!!

    I already searched the fourm, but I couldn't find an answer to this.

    I already sent in my Courtballistecs to Nike, and received a $125 credit to Nike.com

    Do the shoes online at Nike.com (namely the 4.3) have the 6 month outsole warranty that TW/other tennis retailers offer? Or should I just buy the 4.3s again from TW/other retailers if I want the warranty?

    Thanks!

    Does anybody know if Adidas will honor warranties for shoes purchased from their outlet stores?

    For some reason, an Adidas outlet in Vegas had Barricade 7's on clearance for $70, had to pick up a pair.

    yes! they will. many of outlets still charge $140 for barricades haha.
    anyway, once I bought two barricades for less than $35 then 6 months later, I claimed both shoes for warranties and received the replacement shoes.

    I think you have to send in a receipt from an authorized retailer with the warranty card. Eb@y is not accepted I don't believe.

    thanks for the reply

    One more question. If there is midsole showing at the bottom edge of the shoe but the rest of the shoe is still in okay(worn but very usable) condition would it be accepted for the warranty? (asics warranty=back to tenniswarehouse)

    warranty due in about a week

    what happens when your replacement shoe also gets worn out
    Within the 6 months?
    they also replace the replacement shoe?

    Hey guys, if I got my Adidas Barricade 7's back in February and now the bottoms are utterly destroyed, what do I have to do for the 6 month outsole durability guarantee? Do I send it to Adidas directly? Or the website I got it from? And do I have to include some sort of receipt?

    you send them to adidas. If you bought it from tennis warehouse, you could send them back to them for a new pair. Otherwise, most other retailers would want you to send them to the shoe's resepctive companies
    hope that helps! I'm about to send in my cb 4.3's

    Did I ever hear someone say that you can get credit for Adidas.com when you send in barricades or am I imagining something? I have a pair that's almost ready to be sent in and was curious.

    Thanks! I'll hopefully be sending mine in soon. I appreciate the help!

    I've heard that too. I'm just not sure of where particularly you're supposed to send it, like, the address. Can anyone help me out?

    I know you are just trying to be on the safe side, but these companies will honor any shoe that has broken through the outsole without question. Send those in tomorrow and get a new pair.
