    I need to find a more durrable shoe. I play atleast 3-5 hours a day and am going through shoes very very fast. I just went through a pair of Breathfrees in 2 months I dont mean like slight im like past the sole. I unfortuantly forgot to keep the recet. I need some options of very durrable shoes

    best bet i would say is try the barricades, other than that i don't think theres any other shoe with as good of an outsole. wearing out shoes is just part of the sport.

    Your best bet is to buy any tennis shoe with the 6 month outsole guarantee and then SAVE THE RECEIPT :twisted:

    You're basically getting the shoe for about half price.

    By far the CB 1.3's are the best. I go through barricades in 2 months. I've had the 1.3s for about 4 and they are still going strong. Tread is wearing, but the shoe still has a lot of cushion. I play like 5-6 days a week, for 3-5 hours or even more.

    Maybe more school (and spelling) and less tennis?

    loved the nb mc803 but wore those out in a little over 2 months. getting a warranty replacement, but i was thinking of trying out the nb ct1004.

    most definitely try the Nike 1.3. if you used the BFII before, and the Barricade didn't work for you, the 1.3 will fit a little narrower but will be your best option.

    i've found that the 1.3 is twice as durable as barricade (at least for rubber wear) as it has lasted me 3 months versus 1.5 for barricade IV. it's a tough break in period of about 1-2 weeks, but once it's broken in, it fits like a glove and is now my favorite tennis shoe of all time.
