    Default Side sole worn out because of dragging. Anyone face similar issue

    Dear all,

    I am right handed and recently my shoes are worn out due to dragging my left foot during lunges to the net on the right hand side. Anyone face similar issue? Is it that my footwork is wrong? Any way to mend it?

    Two years? At least you don't have to change every six months.

    Had it for 7 months now. Plays 6 - 8 hours a week, singles and doubles. Most of the friction on the side happened in my singles game as I need to lunge more.

    ^ Yeah, that's a lot of usage. So the wear looks about right for your shoe.
    Especially the dragged part.

    Very common, your trailing foot drags when you perform lunge movements. When it gets worn it's best to replace than repair, because your shoe is no longer giving you the proper support and will result in fatigue and in some serious cases injuries.

    My shoes tear and wear about in 3-6 months depending on how much I play during that time frame.

    Two years? That's ambitious! Since it wears out in that area, be satisfied that your footwork looks OK
