I live in Iceland so for about 9 months a year I play indoors on a very soft cort. It's kinda like a carpet.

I bought my first pair of tennis shoes in 2009 and I can still play in them. I have five pairs now that I rotate but I don't think one of them is close to the usage I see in some of those pictures.
Outdoor hard courts. I can normally get 3-4 months from CBs before I'm through to the midsole. Those who play more do it even faster. Indoor carpet is great fun, I play that when I'm in Europe over Christmas.
