One major issue is the durability!! After a total of 15 tennis-sessions (a total of maybe 25 hours of hard court tennis) there is just a fraction of rubber left before my big toe pops out. It wears out extremely fast. Way way way faster then any other shoe i have tried in the past,, For example,, I have used the Barricade V about the same time and they are still like brand new. I fully understand why Asics dont have a 6 month durability warranty.
What do you think about adding Teflon toeguard in the front ? that may stretch the life a bit
