No you are not. My previous pairs of shoes had 6 month warranties so I ended up purchasing a pair of shoes with the second pair covered by the warranty replacement. With the Vapor 9s, it's now 4x the cost so it is a significant expense for sure. There isn't any shoe out there that is comparable in terms of comfort, support, and speed.
The Asic Speed Solutions come close and base on my usage, lasts probably about 5 months compared to 3 months for the Vapors.
