    I don't know, nike might think that you purposely broke it since it still looks so clean

    OMG! thats what many of my friends and coachs said. but its that i always kill the heel before anything else. thats why i got barricades more heel protection! tenniswarehouse believes that they will replace it i emailed them. so i hope soo.

    similar to mine!

    hey kimguroo!
    that would be great if you could tell me about my warranty of my shoe!
    As well could you take a full picture of your CB before you send it to have more of a example?
    Thanks!

    are tennis shoes the only type of shoes that carry a warranty? will nike/any other brand honor a replacement for any shoe under 6 months?

    does running warehouse have durability guarantees?

    I don't think running shoes has the warranty.

    only CB has warranty (cage but discontinued).

    I agree with technoob10, there doesn't look like much wear on the shoe. How long have you had the shoes for?

    honestly, what have you done with your shoes?
    I've never heard someone drags heel:confused:
    how can someone drag heel, when they play tennis.
    if someone slides at courts, usually front part shoes should contact first.....
    did you practice moonwalk dance with the shoes? ^___^
    I usually finish heel areas first but never drag my heel area, just natural activity caused the problem.
    look at my shoes. rubber part is gradually worn.
    In your picture, it looks like something just bite your heel part.
    other than heel parts, the shoe looks like have more than 3 months of life.

    I am not the warranty inspector so I can't give you the exact answer but If I am the inspector, I might reject the warranty because of unusual wear on the shoes so I might conclude your warranty with mis-used or abused. In my opinion, you have 40% chance.

    I dont understand, how can you have posted the wrong shoe? You put up six different links, then went on to say you were a "heavy heel dragger fyi." Then you commented several times afterwards...(yes im trolling, and no i dont care if you guys care, i just want to know the real story)

    There's never a question as to whether or not I can send my shoes back. The damage is usually done after an average of 2 months.

    my hitting partner always make holes at exact spots ^_^

    I assume you already worn out your outsole (most of those kind of people have good foot works so they have holes at side of shoes as well as outsole).
    if outsole does not wear much, it might not qualify the warranty because shoes companies offer 6 month outsole warranty. not entire shoes.
    since side of shoes are not outsole so if the inspector might reject the warranty.

    How long have you been using them? If I were you I would just keep using them untill a week before the waranty is about to expire and then send them, those shoes are completly usable. If Nike says no way at least you used them long enough.

    This is an example of typical wear on the outsole. Gotta love Barricades. Anyone else think that I should be a part of their durability research team?

    Do all Court Ballistec 2.3s have a warranty of 6 months?
    Where do I ship them to, to see if they qualify?

    you can claim the warranty shoes from any authorized dealers.
    heard someone was granted his warranty (the shoes was bought in nordstrom rack).

    keep your receipt!!! ^_^

    BTW the warranty is for outsole only.

    Love my set of vapors. Don't think I received a warranty card at PGA store for mine though. I thought they were unwarrantable.

    They are unwarrantable. But the store in vegas gave me a year warranty on them. I have to bring/send them back to that store.

    never heard vapor has the warranty and also never heard nike town offers a year warranty for shoes:confused:

    did you buy something like extended warranty for shoes (never heard nike offer extended warranty either though)?

    are you talking about defective item warranty?
    if so, your vapor is not covered.

    let us know about this warranty. keep posting your story regarding on this warranty. very interesting.

    The guy just said that each shoe has a year warranty on them, and you have a year to bring/send them in for a replacement pair.
