on my left foot and play almost exclusively on hard courts).
Initially I found the 8's quite uncomfortable and they took quite a while to wear in. Never had such issues with the 7's as they were comfortable straight away.
Once worn in they are fine but more importantly - virtually no wear on the toe!!! Very impressed as frankly I'm happy to take a slight hit on comfort for the financial bonus of not having to buy new tennis shoes every 6 months
No, you're not...
I am happy if I can get through 3 months with the 7's and maybe 4 months with the 8's.
THere are people that "kill" them in less than 2 months...
