Top Tennis Shoes Featuring a 6-Month Outsole Warranty

Due to the unique demands of tennis, poorly designed shoes can wear out in no time. In the past, companies offered outsole warranties of varying lengths to prove that their shoes were the most durable. Nowadays, it seems as though a sort of ceasefire has taken place, as it is quickly becoming standard practice to issue 6-month outsole warranties for specific lines. Nonetheless, this means that if your shoes sustain a significant amount of damage in the outsole within half a year of purchase, you may be eligible to return them for a new pair.

It can be difficult to keep track of quality tennis shoes that feature outsole warranties. This is why we have compiled a list of our current favorites. Below, we showcase one shoe per brand, and rank them based off of user feedback and overall performance:

6-Month Outsole Warranty - Eligible for ReturnReturn Policies6-Month Outsole Warranty - Ineligible for Return

Generally speaking, the standard guideline for eligible returns is that the outsole must be completely worn through to the midsole.  This is clear in the picture on the left; however, while the shoe on the right is certainly worn down, it likely would not qualify for a return.
