Every shoe I've used lasted from 3-10wks. I usually use Adidas,Nike,lotto and NB. I was tired of shoes not lasting more than a month. Never used prince so I decided to give them a chance. I play 4-6 times a wk And so far it's been the best shoes I've used. Little too heavy for me but I can tell it will last several months.
The new style prevents premature wearing of the fabric above your toes. The new shoe has a woven fabric to prevent the premature wearing.
I am a recreational player who loves Prince. I got these in an 11 and I normally wear a 10.5, they fit perfect (tennis shoes always fit me weird so I get half size bigger) I have played several games in them and they fit perfect and feel sooo comfortable. I have never had any issues with toe jamming or sliding. I haven't had any issues at all. I am very happy with my purchase, but to each his own. I don't have the t22's so I can't compare the 2, but I do have the Viper 7 low's and I like these a little more (they both are awesome for me) Plus they look awesome!
