    Exactly what it sounds like. You drag your to into your shot and/or after your shot.

    When you run and stop the inside of the soles, take quite a beating, the outside is more sturdier.

    This applies for running forwards and sideways, and since this is usually what happens the most in tennis the toe area will always wear down quicker, and when you turn your feet for the forehand it ruins the toes as well.

    Make the toe part more durable, Nike.

    Judging from all your post, you don't seem to know anything about tennis...

    personally, quick changes of direction would be the main culprit.
