i usually get a pair and will ball indoors all winter and then when summer months come, i play outdoors and i keep a pair for pavement ball
once they rip or something, i take my indoor kicks and make them my outdoors (because i ball outdoors way more than indoors in the summer) and about fall time ill replace my indoor shoes. since i keep this rotation i only buy ball shoes maybe once every 1.5 years, and i only have and need two pairs
right now im balling in Adidas TS Heat Check's (had them for almost 2 years) outdoors and Kobe 6's indoors (bought at beginning of summer). been doing like this since freshman year in high school
I'm in a similar boat. I play hard, but I take care of my basketball shoes. I can usually make it a few years before they begin showing serious wear and tear, at which point they become my outdoor shoes. It's a solid cycle.
