Yes, the absence of over-engineered rubbers and plastics are one of the Court Zoom NXT's greatest assets. Ironically, I have enjoyed better durability out of these (5+ months with no issues, almost no tread wear, and great comfort still) than I did out of the Asics GR8, despite the Asics looking like a battle tank in comparison. I've had no issues with the NXT eyelets either, and I wear thick Thorlo socks every time I play.
I play on synthetic grass and synthetic clay (en-tout-cas) much more often than I do on hard court, so that's an important caveat.
I think Nike mad a really great shoe here, but it's evidently well suited to some feet and not others — look elsewhere if you place a premium on heel cushioning, for example. I will be buying more pairs as they go on sale.
