    should definitely be covered as it is the sole that wraps up. although even more surprising are mclovin's that were well into the toe guard. That is good to know!

    Considering mine were accepted, I think you're good to go (yes, realize that nike is not NB, but if NB doesn't accept that, then wow.

    Do you have to have the adidas warranty card to send them in? My barricade 7's all white didn't come with one.

    What do you guys think about this? I bought the pair in April. I think it should qualify as there is a physical hole...

    I can see a hole so it's good to claim the warranty in my opinion.
    Nike is generous regarding on warranty claim.

    Mine got a small hole in the exact same place on both shoes! I think that's a weak spot maybe..but it did take a while to wear em down, those outsoles were very durable overall. The warranty came through for me just fine when I sent them in.

    How long did it take for you to get the voucher after you were approved?

    It took about 5 days after they received the shoes til I got the email confirmation, then about 10 days or so after that I got the voucher in the mail. So somewhere around 2 weeks total after they received the shoes til I had the voucher in my hands

    My tip/guideline is not to use manufacturer warranty (i.e. from Nike), but from vendors such as TW, who are much kinder: i.e. they always replace my shoes even when the manufacturer won't warrant it yet...
    I do send mine back the moment the thread is gone a bit bald in one place (i.e. the ball or the side of my right foot) and I start slipping.

    Well mine got approved today when they were sent in on the 24th. "You'll receive your Nike product voucher in the mail in approximately 7-10 business days."

    So far head has been the fastest turnaround for me and so has TW. Sent sprint pro back to head in the mail and it arrived to them on a Monday or Tuesday and I got a knock on the door from fedex by friday with a replace pair in the same size(diff color). TW also got them processed and shipped for a Fila sentinel in no time at all.

    Do you have pictures of the Head Sprint Pro? I heard Head was picky about their warranty.

    No pics ..would have taken if i knew of this thread. i imagine my outsoles wore through to the color of the next layer on both the heads and filas. had the redwhiteblue heads and it wore through the white on the inside edge of the big toe and on the fila it was the same. the white outsole got bald then it started to shoe gray which was the next layer...probabalby about a two inch long area on that edge of teh shoes. and a spot was exposed on the back heel.

    Does anyone know if they check the color on the returns? I had a pair of nike lunars in blue that I got as a warranty replacement from a previous nike shoe. They wore out, so I bought another pair of lunars in white/pink/blue. I got injured so I didn't play much and didn't wear out the white ones. The warranty is about to end on the white ones. What do you think would happen if I sent in my old worn out blue ones with the receipt/warranty card from the white ones? If there is a better than 10% chance of success I should probably do it since I would spend $15 to send them in and would get a $150 coupon if successful.

    I'm sorry you were injured, but that's no reason to commit fraud.

    Not sure if these would count as I haven't worn through the entire outsole, just tearing apart the heel.. That piece will be ripped off within the week I am sure. What do you think?

    Has anyone sent in Yonex Durable's under warranty? To Yonex directly? Got them on sale (not from TW) and the seller is not 'aware' of any warranty. If only TW had them in my size I know I wouldn't even have to ask, sigh...

    So here's a pic....odd because the receipt says 'PCD 254' but the colorway is consistent with the PCD I.

    @WildVolley what do you think?

    My impression is that the 254D and PCD were exactly the same shoe, except that the original 254D didn't come with an outsole warranty.
