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:
#8 – HEAD Revolt Pro 2.5
#7 – New Balance 996v3
#6 – Wilson Rush Pro 2.5
#5 – Diadora Speed Blushield 2 AG
#4 – Babolat Propulse Fury
#3 – adidas Barricade Boost
The Eggshell Gray and Aero Lime version is worn by Caroline Wozniacki, who’s been sponsored by the adidas Stella McCartney line since 2009, via www.si.com. To see more of her winning styles check out our blog post Player Gear – Caroline Wozniacki Wins 1st Grand Slam!
#2 – Nike Zoom Cage 3
Zooming to 2nd place in our standings is the Nike Zoom Cage 3. Despite the lighter weight and thinner construction of this shoe, players can expect unmatched durability, as well as generous heel cushioning and bounce back.
#1 – ASICS Gel-Resolution 7
Topping our list is the widely popular ASICS Gel-Resolution 7. This shoe sets a high bar when it comes to finding balance between support, comfort, stability, durability, and performance.
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.
