When I play 5 days a week, several hours each time including training, SHB100MX lasted 3 months. Life span ofthe shoes increases to about 6-9 months when I play about 2-3 times a week.

I think the socks is something we often overlooked.
It acts as a cushioning between our feet and shoes. Socks probably can last about max 6 months, then it becomes thin after repeated washings.
I am no podiatrist, but I strongly feel that having a good pair of socks and tying your shoes tightly will prevent the insides of the shoe from slipping and causing the toes from crashing and tearing the upper support, especially when lunging.
My shb90MX has show signs of tear, after 1.5 years. Time for shoe shopping, just like the ladies.

Yes, the duration of the shoes depends on usage. If you play regular, it is natural that wear and tear happens. Also, it depends on how you run on the court helps as well. A good pair of socks and another sole pad does helps.
I would prefer to invest in cheaper shoes like $50 each. Then I can change to nicer design after its torn. Change it faster. I can like buy 3 pairs on normal brands compared to buying 1 pair on so called branded ones.

Only noticed that you are in Singapore, so would you please advise where to buy yonex and mizuno shoes (authentic ones) in Singapore. I mean it can be unofficial stores. Like in Bangkok, there are some badminton stores, located near the national stadium, selling yonex badminton equipments (including shoes) for lower price than the official yonex shop. Unfortunately, my shoes size was sold out. I'm from Bangkok, Thailand. I will go to Singapore in next two weeks....

I go through shoes every 3 to 4 months. The latest Mizunos were looking great but the left inside sole has worn so thin that the glue from shoe to sole has now worn and has broken loose. I have tried Reeboks, Asics, and Mizunos. The Mizunos gave the best cushioning in my knees and heels as I like to jump smash. Can anyone recommend a pair of shoes, (OK, just a left shoe) that has a long lasting inner sole? I play 3 to 4 sessions a week 2 to 3 hours at a time. Average 8 hours a week currently, then 12 hours per week when I help coach next month. I think I move very quickly and use my inner left foot as my balance/brake for deep lunges and my left toe for a brake to slow down coming straight in.

Im using my 4th pair in almost 6 years now.
First pair was some crappy rucanor, not even real badminton shoes, but I just started playing to I didn't care. Played on those for about 2 years, then I felt like I needed some proper badminton shoes since I was beginning to understand the game and sometimes I felt my shoes were holding me back.
Second was Victor, lasted me about 1,5 year.
Third was Babolat, lasted me about 1,5 year.
Now I am using Victor again, for about 7 month now. Side of the sool of left shoe is a already very flat, all the rest is ok. Guess I have a drag in some of my footwork :P
Next pair (probably in september, when new competition season starts) I think I am going to try out Asics or Adidas. Heard good stories about both, being comfortable for heavier people with wide feet and being good value for money.

My shoes last about 3/4th of a season, I have Asics now but they aren't snug enough for me.
i play an average of 9 hours a week I'd say....
Next week I'm gonna go for these I think:
