    seriously? shoes are consumables. i get less than 1 week from a pair of soles... gritty courts and toe dragging. it isn't the shoe company's problem that I wear them out.

    the warranty is for outsole of the shoes. NOT entire shoes but you might have a case under manufacturing defects but Rarely those cases are granted.

    The lacing system on the 2.3's broke for me too... :p too bad they can't fix that, I actually kind of like the way the 3.3's look and sound, but if the eyelets break, then might not be worth it again.

    These are my B6's and I know they don't look very worn out, but I was wondering if this is a hole starting to form

    the pics are not clear so I am not sure it's a hole or not.
    anyway barricade does not have thick rubber so it might be a hole.
    you can feel thickness near the hole area.
    looks like you can use at least 40+ hours to claim the warranty in my opinion.

    Yeah, I got about a month left on warranty and I normally make the 6 month period on most of my shoes (Propulse II, BV, CB2.3's) but these seem to be very difficult to wear out, and they still look very new everywhere else on the outsole haha

    you have got to be kidding me, you guys send your shoes back for the tinniest wear. this is what my shoes look like after three weeks. I play in them until i burn holes in my socks.

    Haha, That's what my Propulse II's looked like when I sent mine in, It's just these darn B6's are so durable and I haven't gotten to play as much recently.

    So that shoe only last for about 4 months ? How often you play tennis in one week ?
    Dude, that outsole use michelin. It suppose to be better in durability departement. Or it just another marketing scheme ? :|

    Yeah I got my propulses in mid March and I can see the base rubber in some parts of the shoe. I think I have about another 2 weeks before I blow these babies up.

    I had the Barricade 6.0 before these and those lasted about 5 months and even then i was pretty hesitant about sending them in lol.

    I play about 3-4 times a week.

    well i though the michelin would last longer but it hasnt. i play 5-6 times a week as long as the weather let's me. damn colorado weather lol. i had 3 replacements of the pro pulse 2s and ive almost worn through my 2nd pair of the 3's :( the reason i don't switch is because the shoe just fits so well and i feel really light on my feet. damn i need a shoe endorsement lol

    When you say that you were hesitant about sending in the 6's what do you mean? Did you not think you were going to get a replacement because the wear wasn't enough?

    Oh wow, I just realized something! If I bought my B6's on January 22nd, That means the 6 month mark will be July 22nd, not June 22nd like I thought it was for some reason haha, so really that's only 4 months of wear posted above, I still got 2 more months where I will be playing more.

    I think adidas just sends you a new pair of the same shoe no matter what you paid for them....

    You should, although it's strange how you rubbed out the heel part but not the front. Adidas may think this was not due to tennis (like you purposefully dragging your heels when you walk), so you have a slight chance of them not being accepted.

    it's very common pattern of wear (heel).
    in my opinion, Adidas will grant your warranty claim.

    I think they send it to you in the same size you bought it, though it might be a different color.

    I always write a note to Adidias on the shoe box inside regarding what I want. I asked for a larger size and different color last time and they gave me what I wanted.

    I wear out my shoes in 2/3 months but never thought about to use the warranty to get a new pair.
    So how does this work?
    Can you get Adidas/ Nike/ Babolat etc replacing your old worn down shoes through the warranty no matter how old they are and model?
    thanks
    Btw just bought a new pair of shoes this week:evil:

    Darn it!! Wish I took pictures of my last 2 pairs of Babolat Team All Court 4 shoes. The left shoe had a huge gaping hole in the top near my toes and on the side on both pairs. And the right shoe had a huge hole on the bottom near my big toe. Never had problems with the heels of my shoes.

    Going to play with the shoes for a bit longer, but really disappointed in the durability. Shoes only lasted me 3 months where the cb2.3 i had before actually lasted me almost 6 months. I really did enjoy the shoes while they lasted though.
