You can increase it by keeping it clean and keeping it in a safe area. Me, I do not walk as everyday, sometimes I ride a public vehicle so that I can take care of my shoes. 
One thing that will help is you can take your shoes off at home. Another thing is to match your shoes to the terrain that you will be using them in. For example wear your most durable, tough pair of shoes in outdoor, off-road rocky conditions such as when you go hiking. And wear your less-tough shoes to your office job.

First and foremost when buying shoes check whether its leather and the rubber type.

Consider the weather.Most of the shoes tore off during the rainy season.If you're outside and its raining wait first till its over and the run off water has reduced.

Consider where you're walking. Avoid the thorny places and places full of rocks.Walking in such places recklessily tores down the shoes faster.

Finally keep your shoes in good condition by polishing them each day.This way the shoes will not look old even if you wear them for 2 or 3 years.

You can increase your shoes durability by following these simple rules:

1. When not in use always keep them in a box.

2. Whenever you are going to wear them, always clean them with a cloth and then polish them well.

3. Water should not reach to the shoes. Contact with water reduces the durability.

4. Always wear formal shoes for only plain surfaces and clean surfaces. Wear sports shoes only for mountainous & rocky terrains, muddy and thorny places.

My suggestions, 

  • Do not use it regularly
  • Do not use in rainy season
  • Buy best brand company shoes
  • Always keep shoes clean odorless 
  • Use shoes along with socks
  • Do hard work, earn money, buy new one.

1. Use a shoe horn so you don't crush the back edge when inserting your foot.

2. Insert shoe trees when not wearing the shoes.

3. After each use, assuming leather shoes, insert shoe trees and coat the entire shoe with a polish of the same color.

4. Use a horsehair shoe brush to lightly brush the polish to a shine.

5. Repeat 3 & 4 until you like the appearance of the result.

6. The first time you do this it might take an hour or more for each shoe. Thereafter it might take a few minutes or as much time as you care to spend.

This is one of the problems that I faced before, I only have a few shoes like you and I always used it as a daily basis, and after a year that shoes are being damaged by daily usage, so after I graduated and started working, I earned a salary and I decided to buy at least 2-3 shoes, now I already have 4-5 shoes, and everyday I keep on changing my shoes so I can assure that I can extend my shoe life

1) Purchase branded shoes

2) Keep shoes clean and dry.

3) Use alternate shoes when using twice a day.

The shoes are generally come between 8 - 12 months.
