How long should Clarks shoes last?

The shoes look fine but my husband says they are "dead" after only six months of daily wear. Is this normal?

My husband wears the same pair of Clarks shoes pretty much every day (like this
, though they may not be the exact model). After about six months he claims they are "dead" - that the soles have lost their cushioning and support - and he needs to buy a new pair, even though they look perfectly fine. He's gone through 2 pairs this year already and has asked for a new pair for Christmas.
Has anyone else experienced this problem with Clarks? Is this kind of wear normal for $90 shoes? Can these types of shoes be resoled instead of constantly replacing the whole thing?
Being used to wearing women's shoes with no cushioning at all to speak of, I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around "dead" shoes and having to re-buy the exact same shoes every 6 months!
