OP, buying mousefeet for replacements in the future is a good idea because you won't spend downtime waiting for the replacement feet. However buying them to replace immediately is something I would warn against.
That might be why your feet wear more. I'm a high sensitivity player, typically at 1600+ DPI, up to the full 5700 the G500 uses, but that's a little rare. My movement space is about a 1"x1" space. The reason I have a QCK is from winning it at a LAN years ago. Until about 4 months ago I'd had the original feet on the 518 I'm using now, so they lasted nearly 5 years. What killed them the most was a hard pad I was given (Allsop metal art).
So far I've spent about 4 months with the I-2 glass pad, and can't see any significat wear on the feet of 3 different mice. The downside with that thing is having to clean it constantly. It also didn't work well with the stock G500 feet, which dragged and stuck. I switched to Hyperglide after a month and have enjoyed it much more, with no sticking or weird feeling.
