And like Paul says, the key was soft, supple shoes! Now, I keep those old $20 Walmart shoes at the hangar, and they go on before every single flight! They're no good for walking, so if I'll be doing that where I'm headed--or I'm going to stay overnight--my regular shoes go in the luggage box with me.
Before I "got it" my brake pads used to last 200-300 hours. Nowadays they never seem to wear out!
Have you tried your new brake pads yet?
