    Hmmm, seems like the 7s are holding up much better for you than the 6s did. Or are you playing much less:confused:?

    I dunno... If I am playing 5 + hours a week & a shoe holds up for six months I am a happy paying customer ;-)

    Does anyone know if I can get Barricade 8s if I mail in my worn out 7's?

    I believe the rule has always been that you get the same model unless they ran out, then they give you a different color. I don't think you can upgrade unless they ran out of stock. Don't take my word though, haven't tried this before. Attach a letter with your shoes saying that you would like the B8's instead of your B7's, can't hurt to try.

    If you can't get the 8's instead, just sell them on the bay or something. Then use that to buy some other shoes. That's how I saved myself from having to go through another pair of Propulses, Michelin makes decent tires but they failed with durability with their shoes(Poor shoes lasted less than a month :()

    It's good to claim the warranty.

    I mailed shoes to TW (after checking with them through email if it was OK to mail Nike shoes directly to them) last Monday and should be receiving my new pair tomorrow. A turnaround of 8 days including shipping back and forth is quite fantastic.

    Nike Max Cage (2013) - Poor sole lifespan

    Nike Max Cage (2013)

    Very comfortable but by far the worst sole lifespan i have had. They lasted just 2 months.

    Anyone have any experience of the Cage vs Vapor in terms of sole lifespan?

    ^Resolutions aren't as durable as Cages, but more comfortable by a good margin.

    Not sure if this is a joke post but, you know the Vapor 9's aren't backed by a warranty right?

    oh, i'm not talking direct warranty. This was from a tennis store near me they we're rejected by Nike, I got new shoes from the actual tennis store, honestly i'm pretty sure the store gave them to me just because they had enough of my mum complaining...

    I have to say they are bright pink, however I think they are advertised as atomic red.

    I figured so. I've never sent a pair back. No slipping yet so I should be able to finish out the summer in these.

    Just wondering, if you bought a pair that is defective, some part broke in one day, and you return it to TW.Are there outsole guarantee on the pair they return to you?

    Hey guys im new to this warranty stuff so I'm not sure if mine are ready or not. The outsole on my ballistecn 4.3s is worn through on the heel area such that you can see that gray layer underneath(not sure what this is called) and all traction on other parts of the shoe is rubbed off. Am I ready for warranty? If you are not sure, I can try to post a picture or something later on. Thanks for the help :)

    This is usually what I send in(3 months old), your shoe probably doesn't have this much wear on them but as long as it reaches the foamy parts you should be good.

    Click the thumbnail for a larger pic...that's the outside heel that is wearing out. I'm holding them inverted so the left shoe is on the left in the pic and right shoe is on the right.

    [​IMG]

    Asics Gel Resolution 4 at around 102 hours and 10 days short of 4 months. They are still comfortable and I'm not slipping yet so I'm still wearing them but if I were to send them in right now, good enough for a warranty claim? I've never sent any shoes in before.

    If they're burned till the foam, it's good to send.

    ^If it's on the outsole, then yes it doesn't matter where on the outsole.

    It's good to go. Gray part is the midsole (form).
    BTW, didn't you have air max cracking problem? Since there is a excessive wear on heel area.

    White part is midsole so it's good to go.
    I sent my warranty shoes a week ago then granted the claim so I am waiting for the voucher. I always wear out heel area first like yours.
