As others have mentioned, the Vapor line isn't the most durable. That said, I have plenty of Vapor 6's kicking around. The tops look almost NEW! Yet, they all wear out at the big toe for me. I get wearing just up from that at the tip of the shoe, but none of mine have any wear close to the wear on the OP's shoes.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone drag that part of the shoe on hard court (clay, sure while sliding). I think Nike could make this shoe a touch more durable but many of us like them b/c of the lightweight qualities. I'd change your technique on hard court...seems like it would be a good thing to do in preventing an ankle roll as well. But I don't think Nike would be responsible for something like this. Find a shoe that has good protection in the area you drag and you'll be good to go.
