Someone give me an idea of how long will a pair of tennis shoes last. I bought a pair of Ellesse Vita tennis shoes for $34 a months back. They play fine except that they are horribly ugly looking. I just wonder how soon can I wear out this pair so that I can buy a pair of Barricade IV. My current Ellesse only has very little wear after 20 hours of wear time. It looks like they will last forever. :-( Usually how long does your pair of tennis shoes last, in terms of hours?
