Think these are ready to be sent back?
Are they good to send for replacement?
Please take a look at my shoes. Are they good for outsole warranty replacement?
My last day is Dec 18.
Yes. You can claim your warranty.
Anyone know if they cover a shoe lace problem? The laces broke on my White/Black CB 4.3s.
A store like TW does under manufacturers defect (and they've told me that many people do it), I've used it once (since then I just sew back the cloth laces, or you could drill holes).
What outsole -- I see none left
your good nice job
it's good to go!
I think so too!
I'm amazed of the changes of slipping people are taking...Personally, once the thread is gone and I start losing my footing, I don't want to take chances and I send the shoes back back for replacement under warranty.
I posted the above pic more FYI.
Idont they are good yet
Definitely not. Has to go through the layer below the main thread...
Want me to show you my refund? I'm trying to be helpful here...
I dont know why you would send them if u still had time?
Time for what? To break a leg?
Even if the 6 months weren't up, I would have still claimed it.
I gotta agree w/ Fintft here. If they are ready to go, send 'em back. You're just causing discomfort to your feet or risking injury if you wear them down to the bone.
I've got a pair of Max Cages that I'm sending back this week. They are worse than Fintft's, but nowhere near some of the others I've seen here, and I still have another month left on them. I'll post pics tonight.
Sending them back this week:
Yeah, I drag my toe...
I have punctured the bubble on my ballistecs 4.3 and I don't believe I have worn enough through the sole to get the durability replacement. Can I claim a manufacture defect? I can post pictures if needed.
Will Adidas take specific requests for shoes? I'm sending in Barricade 7's, and I think they're perfect. I want to leave a note in my box saying that I would prefer Barricade 7's to be sent back, and not the Barricade 8 shoes.
Hate to contradict anyone but can't stay silent!
Fintft, those Nikes are definitely good to go. I know from experience.
It's puzzling to see feedback here that is a lot more stringent than I would
expect even from the shoe manufacturers themselves :???:
I hope I am not correct and he gets the replacement.
Send the shoes and let us know whether you receive the voucher or not.
I am curious too.
Honestly, your shoes need to be worn out more but we are not shoes inspector from nike. Warranties are case by case so some inspectors might be generous (probably does not know exact rules) or very strict.
I understand that the danger of worn out shoes. A few years ago, I tried to use worn out shoes a little more then I rolled my ankle and fell down but fortunately I was okay since then I change my shoes as soon as I see midsole.
Anyway, Here is exact rules for Nike outsole warranty.
To qualify for this 6-month rubber outsole durability guarantee, the outsole must be completely worn through, exposing the upper of the shoe, within 6 months of purchase. This wear must be the result of playing tennis.
Exposure of different colors of rubber or the midsole does not qualify for this guarantee.
The upper and midsole are not covered under this 6-month rubber outsole guarantee.
This warranty does not apply if the shoe has been abused or mishandled.
Actually it's slightly confusing. It said exposing midsole does not qualify
If you wear through the midsole but the outsole is okay, the shoe does not qualify. Basically, if you tend to slide a lot (ergo pronate) and grind through the midsole, the shoe does not qualify. But if the outsole is gone, feel free to send them.
Thank you, so am I, as I was trying to help people here...
Thank you Sir; I think I've already answered your question.
I even went for a bright orange color on the replacement pair, just to save some money (and use them towards trying new overgrips)
Got a nice little X-mas present in the e-mail today:
These are boxed up and ready to go to Nike. Per Nike's website, in one place it says the warranty card is required. In another, is skips mention of it. Can I get a voucher without the warranty card?
that shoe isnt under the warranty. the shoe you have uses their GDR, which isnt the most durable rubber that nike offers.
It's a. CB 4.1. I could swear it came with the warranty.
4.1 does not have a warranty. If you send them in they'll probably send them right back to you.
No. CB 4.1 does not have the outsole warranty.
Only AirMax and CB have 6 month outsole warranty.
In addition to what others have said (it not being covered in the 6-month warranty), you would need to call Nike & get an RA# first anyway:
Thanks all. I guess that box will go in the dumpster. :-(
Starting to rub off:
Do you all think this will be granted the warranty and replacement? I bought these in mid-August, so I still have a month to go.
Starting to rub off:
Do you all think this will be granted the warranty and replacement? I bought these in mid-August, so I still have a month to go. These are the Women's Nike Air Max Cages
The midsole is showing: it means they're perfectly good to go.
Agreed. See my Men's Air Max Cages on the previous page. They were less worn than yours & I got a voucher no problem.
Thanks everyone! I will be sending these back on the 26th and will let you all know if my claim is granted.
BTW, glad that you got yours replaced under warranty (although I think that you've waited too long)!
Head speed pro, do you guys think this is ready?
I am not so sure because the warranty card said insole should be expose.I think it will be dangerous to wear it till the insole is exposed.
Nike granted the voucher for me on Thursday! Can't wait to buy these:
the shoes should qualify for the warranty and
Most of shoes company might grant your shoe warranty claim but never have experienced with head though.
Going to return this for a friend soon.The outsole in the front still looks nice, but the back is pretty destroyed.
It does not matter as long as any part of shoes expose outsole. It will qualify for the warranty. I usually send for warranties as soon as I see outsole.
I tried to wear more, since most of part has some life then I rolled my anckle because of exposed area. Very lucky that I did not get an injury. After that incident, I don't try to wear worn out shoes for more than 10 hrs.
BTW Do you see any AirMax cracking in the heel?
No, the AirMax did not crack yet, but its almost there. As always, thanks for you advice.I will ship back the shoes as soon as possible.
And that's exactly why I send my shoes back, the moment I start slipping in them, even if they don't "officially" qualify for warranty just yet.
Why risk an injury?
Are these ready to send in I got a month or two left, but I'd like to get new shoes before my season starts:
^ might be the most confusing picture I've seen on these boards.
But yes, you're good. The midsole is showing.
