Comments: My first pair I bought several years ago and they were the best -- comfy, breathable, etc. My second pair, I purchased last year and they are not the same shoe. Very uncomfortable, especially after my first match -- it is down hill form there.
From: Magrid, 8/16

Comments: I bought the Prince T22 on the recommendation of a friend. My other shoe is an Asics. I like the cushioning of the Asics, but decided to switch because of the lack of ventilation in the Asics Gel Resolution. I like that the T22 has better ventilation and a bigger toe box, as my feet are on the wider side. They are cushioned but feel more clunky on the court than the Asics do, but that might be because I am still getting accustomed to wearing them. What I would love to find is a tennis shoe that feels like a running shoe, but has the support of a tennis shoe. The T22s gave me blisters on the insides of both big toes the first couple of times I wore them. I was surprised by this, because my toes have more room in these shoes. I guess it's because they slide around more. I bought some patches to put in the shoes made by Engo, hopefully that will help and I won't have to wrap my toes with moleskin. I need to buy another pair of shoes and would love to find something light and cushiony like the Asics with better ventilation. The other shoe I have tried is the Nike Air Vapor 9.5. They have great ventilation, but aren't as cushioned as the Asics. I am a 3.0 player, playing about 10 hours a week or more.
From: Andrea, 5/16
Note from TW: Hi Andrea, A couple shoes you might want to take a look at would be the Head Nitro Pro and Team, the KSwiss Hypercourt Express and the adidas Stella Barricade Boost. All great options of shoes that have built to be fast but have cushioning and decent breathability!

Comments: I received a replacement pair of these this past Christmas. I just broke them out of the box recently. After using them for the past 8 weeks, I noticed that the left shoe had cracks where the shoe bends and the right shoe was separating from the sole. I contacted Prince and was asked to send them back since they were still under warranty. This is my 4th pair of these shoes -- the other 3 were awesome! It was very difficult to find out how to replace these. These shoes don't fit as good as my other ones and I had to persevere to find out what to do to get a replacement. This might be the last time I buy these shoes. Time will tell -- Prince's customer service was absolutely awful and almost non-existent. Don't understand why a company would change the fit of a wonderful shoe. Makes no sense to me. I bought a pr. of New Balance WC1006 that are awesome. I think I might have found my new tennis shoes!
From: Claudia, 5/16
Note from TW: Hi Claudia -- If you have purchased the shoes from us at Tennis Warehouse we would be more than happy to help you out with your replacement pair and any shoe that seems to be effective! Next time, just give us a call and reach out to our Customer Service Department!

Comments: I have had a love affair with this shoe for ten years. This pair is still bright white and parked in the corner. The shoe has me in so much pain I had to quit playing a match. I'm sad that Prince felt the had to cheap out on this very popular shoe. Still looking for a replacement brand.
From: Terri, 5/16
Note from TW: Hi Terri -- We would suggest checking out some K-Swiss shoes (the Hypercourt and Hypercourt Express) as a potential replacement.

Comments: I am stuck with two brand new pairs of Prince T22s that I am completely unable to wear. I had always stockpiled my Prince sneakers because I had been wearing them for as long as I can remember -- I think since the 1990's. Well, these last two pairs are so uncomfortable, giving me great foot pain and an ankle injury. I did not realize that Prince had changed this model. It is now terribly uncomfortable and I can not recommend them.
From: CEC, 4/16

Comments: Have worn the Prince T22 for many years. Loved how cushiony they were and the roomy toe box. My last couple pairs have not been nearly as comfortable and the seams would pull apart by my little toe. Came to look at the reviews and saw how many people had the same complaints as me. My feet were really hurting after I played in these. I went searching for a replacement. Tried and returned many different pairs. Finally, tried the KSwiss BigShot Light. Has a roomy toe box, width is comfortable, and my toes don't jam into the front of my shoe. And, best of all -- my feet don't hurt anymore.
From: S.R., 4/16

Comments: I used to wear the K-Swiss Ultrascendors until they discontinued them. I wore them for years. They were the best tennis shoe with comfort and great durability. I recently tried on many shoes trying to see what could take it's place. I finally tried on the Prince T22 and it felt good on my feet. I also wear orthotics in them. Well, I have read all of the reviews negative and positive and have to say that these are very comfortable on my feet. They don't rub me anywhere and the durability so far seems very good. I play tennis as well as pickleball several times a week and as of now I am happy with these. I just purchased two more pair. I wear the White/Silver shoe. When I wore the Ultrascendors I needed to take a size 8 and now I take my regular size (7.5)
From: Mary, 3/16

Comments: The vinyl (the silver part) caused me to develop a bunionette on my left foot. The shoes felt very tight and even loosening up the laces did not help. Instead I now have a painful bunionette. Due to the pain, after a month I had to buy new shoes -- this time I went with a Babolat with a wide toe bed and no vinyl. I play pickleball everyday.
From: Kathy, 2/16

Comments: I have been wearing this shoe for 10 years and just bought 2 more pairs. Something has changed with this shoe because it made my foot bleed at the ankle. Can't wear this shoe anymore.
From: Paula, 12/15

Comments: I guess my experience is the exception. I bought 2 pairs of these a few months ago. I took the second pair out of the box yesterday and played 2 sets and no pain. I am a 3.0-3.5 player, in my late 70's and play twice a week. I like the wider toe box due to foot problems and have found these to be comfortable. I wore the first pair for months and had no problems with wear or tear.
From: Mary, 12/15

Comments: I have worn these shoes over a decade and loved them until last year. The pain in my feet was crippling. They changed manufacturer from China to Cambodia, and the shoe was never the same. I appreciated the wider toe box and am a very hard time finding another shoe.
From: Liz, 11/15

Comments: My feet are killing me too. I am glad I read the reviews as I was wondering why these shoes broke down so fast and are puckering. They feel like rocks after 4 months.
From: Jann, 11/15

Comments: I have purchased several colors of the T22 and noticed a significant decline in comfort particularly last year, to the point of my feet actually being in pain. I am a Division 1 Platform tennis player and can no longer recommend these sneakers to anyone. They feel like heavy rocks and stiff all through. Whatever good qualities they had in past years no longer are present. I am switching and doing business with Asics. My team will no longer buy Prince T22s.
From: Barbara, 10/15

Comments: So glad to see these comments. I thought it was just me. I have always worn 6.5 in the T22, but this time they were too small. I was going to order a larger size, but after reading these comments, I will be looking for a different shoe. Shame -- I loved these shoes.
From: Norma, 9/15

Comments: For those of you who miss the original Prince T22's wider fit, I have found a replacement that is very similar. Try the K-Swiss Hypercourt Express. It is very comfortable right out of the box, light, stable, has a wider forefoot, and has good traction. Tennis Warehouse has them in 3 different colorways. I just got a pair and am very happy with them. I play 5 times a week on hard and clay courts. I'll post another comment in a few months regarding the durability.
From: Karen, 9/15

Comments: I had the exact same experience as many of the loyal Prince T22 wearers. I just bought my 4th pair and they were much different. They were about the only shoe perfect for a little bit wider fit. I wore the new shoes and they were very uncomfortable but I continued to wear them thinking they would get better. They fit differently than my other pairs, but did break in after a few weeks. After wearing them 3 times a week, by the second week, the cloth material around my ankle started to rip and the footbed liner started to peel up, which has happened in previous pairs over time. But the worst problem was about four/five weeks in, the toe cover just split open right across where I bend my toes. I returned them and Tennis Warehouse was kind enough to refund my money, but now what should I buy?
From: J, 7/15

Comments: I have worn T22s for years and was about to purchase another pair until reading the reviews. I appreciate the reviews because I would have been upset if I purchased the shoes and the design had changed! Thank you for the reviews ladies! I am wondering, have any of you found another shoe or brand that is as great as the old T22? Once, I found the T22 years ago, my feet no longer hurt! I'm sad and upset that the Prince company changed it. It's hard to find a shoe that is comfortable and looks good!
From: Stacy, 7/15

Comments: I have worn the T22 for years. I just put on my new pair and they kill my feet. They changed the width -- these gave me blisters and my feet cramped so much. I am going to send them back and look for another shoe from their competitors. I know this will hurt their business because my whole tennis team (except 2) wore these and they say the same thing. They were the best shoes before the change!
From: Kim, 7/15

Comments: I just received the Prince T22s in sky/mint. This used to be the perfect shoe for me for many years, but recently they have changed the design. The width is now very narrow. After wearing the shoe for only 15 minutes, my feet were in agony. I will have to return these and look for another shoe. Prince, please bring back the original version of the T22's. They were perfect.
From: Karen, 7/15

Comments: I have worn T22s for years and was about to purchase another pair until reading the reviews. I appreciate the reviews because I would have been upset if I purchased the shoes and the design had changed! Thank you for the reviews ladies! I am wondering have any of you found another shoe or brand that is as great as the old T22? Once, I found the T22 years ago, my feet no longer hurt! I'm sad and upset that the Prince company changed it. It's hard to find a shoe that is comfortable and looks good!
From: Stacy, 6/15

Comments: I am so thrilled with the new design of the Prince T22. In the past, when I tried to wear these shoes the toe box was much too big. The only people who could wear them must have had very wide feet. I have been wearing the Asics Gel Res 5, but they also recently changed their design. The Asics Gel Res 6 has a much harder outsole which gave me back and knee pain. So to all you ladies who are disappointed with the new design, I understand your disappointment however it gives us ladies with a more narrow foot a wonderful new option.
From: Mary, 5/15

Comments: They changed! The toe box is too narrow and the end cap cheapened. They were perfect for years, but now I'm on the hunt for new brand. Prince go back to the old design!
From: Carroll, 4/15

Comments: I want to reiterate some of the comments below. Prince has changed the design and these have gone from being my favorite sneakers I wore for years to the garbage dump! There should be a law against wasting people's money by keeping the same model number, but changing the design! I originally bought the T22s because they were recommended for platform tennis on many platform tennis sites. They were such a terrific shoe! Now they are horrible! I played in the new pair I bought for an hour and a half and in the second set I could barely play because my feet were in such excruciating pain. The shoes have hard rubber on the sides, which was not a problem when the toe box was wider, but now it digs into my foot horrifically. My feet hurt for days after playing for an hour and a half in these shoes! Shame on you Prince!
From: Alyce, 4/15

Comments: I have been wearing Prince T22 for years. I am a competitive tennis player and have always liked the fact that I could take the shoes out of the box and wear them for a match. I bought the same model, same size as I always have and cannot wear the new pair for more than 5 minutes without experiencing pain. The toe box is much narrower than the old version. Unfortunately, I have worn them on the court, so I am unable to return them.
From: Kim, 1/15

Comments: I've worn the T22 for years (4 silver/white pairs and 1 blue/white pair) and have always loved them. I found them to be extremely comfortable, incredibly supportive (most notably laterally), they required virtually no break-in period, and they lasted a very long time. I usually take size 7 or 7.5, but when I bought them this past September, they felt too small and I went with an 8. (Anything larger was entirely too large, so I thought an 8 would be the way to go.) The first time I wore them, my right big toe kept jamming into the front of the sneaker, and my toe nail went black as a result. I simply couldn't wear them anymore. Not only am I out the money I spent on them, but I've tried so many other brands and nothing seems to provide a good fit for me. And I'm also out even more money because, desperate for a new pair of sneaks, I went with the Nike Vapor. I could barely walk by the end of my match -- the bottoms of my feet and my heels never hurt so much! Not sure what accounts for the change in the T22. Bad move on Prince's part.
From: Deb, 11/14

Comments: Wish I had read the reviews before I purchased the T22 (which I have been wearing for 2 years). The toe box way too small and a larger size won't cut it for me. I need the width for my toes to breath! Back they go!
From: Iris, 10/14

Comments: I read that this shoe was the nearest to the QT Scream, which I have used for the past 12 years. Big surprise then, when I had a pedicure, I discovered that the toe nails on my two big toes had gone blue and I will most likely loose the nails. This never happened in all the time I used the QT Scream. Unfortunately, I have worn the Prince T22 and can't exchange them, but at this point they are useless to me.
From: Karen, 10/14

Comments: Prince has changed the design and they are terrible. Made the toe box more narrow and the size seems to be shorter. My 6.5 felt like a 6. Returning the ones I bought. Prince needs to go back to old design. Don't mess with what works and is popular.
From: B, 9/14

Comments: I agree. I have worn these shoes for several years and the last two pairs that I purchased were smaller. Be careful about ordering these online as they seem to be running smaller.
From: ML, 9/14

Comments: I think Prince has changed the way they make the T22 -- I've worn these shoes exclusively for over 7 years and each pair have always been perfect right out of the box. Last week, I tried on a pair at a local shop hoping to have them for the coming week (rather than ordering them online and having to wait) and couldn't even get my feet into my normal size 8.5. A size 9 didn't feel good, either. These were in a black Prince box. Interestingly, that same shop had the navy/berry model in the old green and white Prince box, and those were like all the pairs I've had in the past -- perfect out of the box with no break-in period. It's a shame because they had a good thing going with those shoes -- now I'm on the hunt for as many pairs of 8.5's in white/silver (in the old green and white box) as I can get my hands on.
From: Kristin, 8/14

Comments: Beware T22 faithfuls! I have purchased 7 pairs of T22s since April 2010 and just received my 8th pair only to find that they leave my feet incredibly numb after an hour of play. I have tried loosening the laces, different socks, and even called Tennis Warehouse to see if I had been sent the wrong size mistakenly because in all my pairs, I've never had even the slightest issue. I've worn this pair about seven times -- the first few times thinking I just didn't have them laced correctly; the most recent few times because I was sure I had only imagined how terrible they made me feet feel! This pair just feels as though it is about a half size too small and after an hour of play, I can't wait to get them off my feet.
From: Amy, 8/14

Comments: Do not buy these shoes if you're used to the more comfortable and wider NFS shoes from Prince. These shoes are much tighter in the mid-section; although I've worn Prince shoes for many decades, these shoes are completely unwearable for me. Major pain in my first match today.
From: Karen, 7/14

Comments: My teenage daughter has been wearing T-22s for over a year. I have purchased them for her in several different colors. Recently she has complained that the bottom of her feet/heels have been hurting her every time she wears them. I am going to have to search for a pair that has more cushioning/support.
From: Lainie, 7/14

Comments: Great for my wide feet! These were great right out of the box. I have 3 pairs (the berry, black and white). The white runs larger. I get about 6 months of wear playing 15 hours a week.
From: Lisa, 7/14

Comments: I purchased these from Tennis Warehouse in August 2013. I love the color very much and they fit me well and are quite comfortable and attractive. I wear a size 11 and sometimes it is hard getting the right fit and right look and this is it, my feet even appear smaller. I get many compliments when I wear them, and they still look new since I only wear them occasionally and now I have to search your site and see if they come in other colors because I would buy them in every color!
From: Yvone, 5/14

Comments: I have worn Prince shoes for years without a single complaint, but the first outing in the T22s, I got hot spots that nearly blistered.
From: Annie, 3/14

Comments: I love the wide toe box but the shoes are very heavy and not flexible at all. They look great, even with the big toe box. Looking for shoes again!
From: Sharon, 2/14

Comments: I love the Prince T22 shoes, they are so comfortable! I was wearing the Nike Zoom Vapor 9 Tour and those shoes gave me right hip and knee pain, plus they wore out too fast. The Prince T22 may look big on, but they have so much cushion and extra room in the toe box for all the fast moving in tennis. I am a 4.0 player and I am on the courts 3 days a week, sometimes more. I have a high arch and medium width foot with narrow ankles. I found interlocking the laces like the runners do helps my ankles stay in place. I bought the silver and berry shoes and I am getting so many compliments. I am glad I tried these shoes. I love the fun colors!!!
From: Sandy, 11/13

Comments: I love these shoes -- I have had every color and have just ordered the black. I do wish Prince would come out with more color selections. I had plantar fasciitis a couple of years ago and since switching to the T22, it is completely gone. I have a wide foot and high arch -- these are great!
From: Kathy, 8/13

Comments: Normally, I don't require a toe box as wide as the one on this shoe. In terms of the vanity point, they make my feet look big, even though I wear a 6.5. It is a very stylish shoe to me.
From: Henrietta, 6/13

Comments: I have worn Prince shoes for over ten years and always liked them. But the T22 aggravated my plantar faciitis after two outings.
From: Jean, 4/13

Comments: I switched from a KSwiss style that has now been discontinued - I used to buy them three pair at a time because I was afraid they would be gone. Now they are, and the new KSwiss with the roll bar hurt my foot terribly when I tried them on. So, time for a different shoe. Looking for a year, finally I was recommended these. I tried them on - feels like I'm wearing bedroom slippers, they are so comfortable. I was told me that to go 1/2 size down on these - he was right. The arch in the 9-1/2 hit in a funny place, but the 9's are perfect. I haven't worn a 9 in 15 years. I play 3-5 times per week, 4.0-4.5 singles and doubles - no foot pain, no break-in needed. One issue - the shoes are giving me a small blister/callous on my left foot in two places: on the right side of my big toe, and on the right side of my left foot about between the joint and the ball of the toe. But it doesn't hurt - I just notice it when I take off the shoe.
From: Karen, 6/12

Comments: My pinky toes were gets blisters so I re-laced the shoe so that the lace did not go through hole next to pinky and that relieved the pressure. Blisters healed. On clay the shoe keeps my feet cool. On hard court the sole of my foot was burning up. It is a very comfortable shoe, wide toes box. I am a 9 but with orthotics and size 9.5 was perfect.
From: Anon, 6/12

Comments: This shoe was the best shoe I have ever had in my life. They are comfortable and they have a lot of support. I just switched from Nike to this shoe because Nike wears out to quickly and my foot moves and that made me brake my big toes nail. I love this shoe very much and I strongly recommend it to everybody that played tennis because your feet have to feel good because you run so much.
From: Sam, 6/12

Comments: I wear Yonex, Fila, New Balance, Babolat and I just got these Prince and I love them. requires zero break-in, they are low to the ground, sole si wide and stable, they feel light. I have high arch (use orthotics so my 9 foot takes a size 9.5 in these shoes)) and I need a wide toe box and these shoes work great for that. Yes they look slightly clowny on the top but they come in 8 colors so that is cool.
From: Anon, 5/12

Comments: These shoes are terrific! I couldn't believe the instant comfort when trying the shoes on, however one doesn't know how new shoes will feel after a hard match on the court. No worries with the Prince T22! I play around 3 or 4 matches per week, and have been nursing foot problems (metatarsalgia, plantar fascitis, and bunion pain) for a couple of years. The pain has gone away! If you have a rather wide foot and seek arch support and a cushion feel, this shoe may be for you. I hope Prince doesn't discontinue this style, as I will be buying more in the near future!
From: Nancy, 4/12

Comments: Alright, I just got these shoes today. I wear a 7. They look cute, and the turquoise color just matches my skirt. One problem, the toes are shaped like a clown. I feel like Ronald MacDonald in these shoes! Seriously, it's clunky. The little holes were cool, and the silver lines are artsy -- the problem is the shape -- at first, I felt like riding in a boat. There was too much room for my toes and the heels are not snug. So I tried to wear thick socks, but then it made the middle of the shoe tight, I was maybe losing blood circulation, after a few hours of walking around the house with it, I am deciding to ship this back tomorrow. Darn, I thought I already found a perfect shoe. Well, I am out on the hunt again, maybe Nike Zoom will do it.
From: Maritess, 2/12

Comments: I found the grey plastic stabilizer band hurt the top of my big toe joint so much that it is still painful to the touch after not wearing them for 4 months! Also gave me ball of foot pain and aggravated my plantar fasciitis!
From: Sue, 2/12

Comments: I've tried a variety of Prince, Nike, and Adidas shoes and I always find that Prince shoes are the most comfortable for me because I have wide feet. These have been my favorite Prince shoes so far because not only are they comfortable, I love the turquoise color as well!
From: Tina, 2/12

Comments: I bought them in a 8.5 for my 12-year-old girl. She says they look good, are light and fit like a glove.
From: Dennis, 12/11

Comments: These are the best shoes I have ever owned. I have relatively wide feet, and these suit my needs perfectly with amazing comfort. I definitely recommend these!
From: Julie, 11/11

Comments: Overall I like these shoes because they fit well and have a wider toe box. So many sneakers are just too tight across the top of the foot and up front. The shoes are flexible and don't require a lot of break-in time. The downside is they are a bit clunky looking (if that matters to you) and they are somewhat clunky and heavy. Prince does not make the lightest shoes. Also I find that they grip a hard court too well sometimes. I have hurt my knee in these shoes because I go to place my foot and it just stops. In the end, I suppose I am sort of neutral about them. They fit well and are comfortable but have caused me some knee pain and they are a bit hot and heavy to play in on concrete in Florida. They are not "bad" shoes but are somewhat expensive too.
From: Lashelle, 11/11

Comments: These shoes are killing my feet. I found them to run large. My feet are slightly on the wide side, and I even had to buy super thick socks. Too much play inside the shoe. I've never experienced this kind of soreness before.
From: L, 11/11

Comments: These are great shoes. I am on my 2nd pair and still loving them. I'm 13 and play tennis everyday for at least 4 hours. I would not change a thing!
From: Michelle, 10/11

Comments: I love these shoes. They are very comfortable and are wearing well. I have had them since May and play a couple times a week on hard courts inside and out. I wear 7.5B dress shoes and have high arches; I size up on my sports shoes and wear with thick Thorlos. I will buy again.
From: Suse, 10/11

Comments: I usually wear a 7, but the 6 1/2 fit better. It is nice and snug on the heel. There is no break- in required which is probably due to the mesh instead of solid fake leather. Only downside is the design of the toebox gives them a slight clown-like appearance.
From: Lisa, 9/11

Comments: I found this shoe to be a little on the wide side.
From: Anon, 9/11

Comments: Oh, the Cadillac of shoes! Today, I wore them straight onto the court - zero break in, and they were awesome. Cushiony, hugs the foot, lots of support, not hot, spongy thick rounded heel and plenty of toe room. Good support without heaviness or stiffness and good breathability. Amazing shoes!
From: Kath, 8/11

Comments: I absolutely love these sneakers. They are comfortable from the get go. I love the comfort of a wide toe-box and the feel of control and maneuverability, on the court. I appreciate the 6 month outer-sole guarantee. Don't change anything, I will buy again.
From: EC, 7/11

Comments: I have tried many different tennis shoes before finally finding the Prince T22. I absolutely love them and I am very picky. They are very comfortable, have good cushioning, and good support. Overall, they are very, very good.
From: Anon, 7/11

Comments: These shoes are awesome. This is my fourth time buying them. I have sensitive feet, and these are the best tennis shoes I have ever worn. They have a wide toebox, which is perfect for me. These shoes need very little time to break- in. Also, they also are quite durable. I play every day for 3-4 hours and they last quite a long time. I highly recommend these shoes. My only complaint with this shoe is that it is heavy.
From: Anon, 7/11

Comments: I find them very comfortable on the court but have experienced pain in my lower achilles the day after in both feet. I have never had this before and am wondering whether the shoes are contributing to this!? I tried putting an athletic support insole in but this "day after play" discomfort is still apparent. It's kind of strange.
From: Stephanie. 6/11

Comments: These are the most comfortable tennis shoes I've ever had. Got a second pair so I'd have two colors. The toe box is a little wider than is typical for tennis shoes. I don't think of my feet as being super wide, but every other pair of shoes I've had (Nike, K-Swiss) would rub somewhere around my toes and therefore be uncomfortable. Definitely no rubbing with these. If you have really narrow feet, these shoes may be too wide for you and thus feel unstable. There was no break- in period for me, comfortable right out of the box. Love them.
From: Jean. 5/11

Comments: I've had these shoes for about a year now and can't stand them. I have slightly wide feet and play about twice a week. After playing an hour they start to hurt the inner and outer sides of my feet. Also, they feel like boats on my feet (heavy and wide). I am definitely not going to buy these again.
From: Jacqueline, NY, USA. 4/11

Comments: These are great shoes. Very comfortable and durable. I would highly suggest these shoes for anyone with sensitive feet!
From: Kabryn, Denver, CO, USA, 01/11

Comments: I'm a player that plays everyday and at first it hurt my little toe but after it was broken in they are amazing! I love them and they conform to your feet.
From: Celesta, DE, USA, 01/11

Comments: Hurts my small toe, to such a point that I can't wear them 2 days in a row. I would not buy them again and am going back to Asics or New Balance.
From: Mary, Warren, NJ, USA, 01/11

Comments: I love these, but bought the black ones and they seem to be a 1/2 size smaller than other colors. I wasn't the only one who thought that, so make sure you try them on before ordering different colors! Other than that they are a great, durable shoe. Best on hard courts
From: Carolyn, CA, USA, 12/10

Comments: These are the clunkiest shoes I have ever tried. Way too wide in the toe box and I have normal feet. They also caused a painful bump on my Achilles. When on the court these shoes constantly reminded me of their heaviness so have returned to Nike.
From: Connie, Little Rock, AR, USA, 11/10

Comments: I wore these for the first time last night and my feet felt like they were in heaven. I typically wear Nike Zoom Breathe due to their comfort, durability, and lightness but I am sick of wearing white shoes. After trying on numerous pairs of men's black shoes (which were always too wide) the salesperson encouraged me to try the black T22s. I love them!
From: Nicole, Detroit, Mi. 10/10

Comments: I have been a Prince fan for years. I tried these shoes after being totally disappointed with the Scream 3. These shoes need a break in period and during that time I developed burning pain in my arches. I am so tired of spending money on Prince shoes that continually disappoint me. I will look elsewhere now for better shoes.
From: Jean, Fayetteville, 10/10

Comments: I absolutely love these shoes. They require minimal break in and though I have only had them two months I can tell they are going to last me a while. My Wilson Trance tennis shoes used to make the arches of my feet hurt as well as my toes but I have not experienced any of that with these shoes. i am a 4.0 player, play 4 times a week on hard court.

Comments: I love this shoe! I feel like I can run so much faster because they feel so light on your feet. They fit your foot nice and they have very good comfort, especially in the heel. This is a great shoe.

Comments: These shoes are great! I've worn every brand of shoe out there, Nike, Adidas, K Swiss, Wilson, etc. and these are THE best! They last FOREVER and are so comfortable because I have plantar faciitis so these definitely help keep my feet supported! I strongly suggest getting these shoes!
From: Mary, Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA. 7/10

Comments: I have a slight overpronation problem that leads to IT band syndrome and plantar faciitis; thus, picking the right shoe is very important to me. I went to the Tennis magazine web site and read their reviews. The Prince T22 and Asics Gel Revolution 2 were among the highest rated shoes, so I tried both. I ended up going with the Asics because they are lighter and provide more support. Although the Prince shoe feels lower to the ground, which I like, they felt like clunky clown shoes on my feet (due to the wide, mesh and rubber toe box). I was worried that the heavy feel would slow me down and the movement of my feet in the shoe would lead to injury.

Comments: I have them in grey and yellow. Love them! I decided to buy them in white and black. For some reason the black and white fit tight and hurt the ball of my left foot. Same size shoe. So what's up with that? Did Prince change their sizes from color to color?

Comments: These are by far the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I play 2 hours a day, 3 to 4 times a week, come home, feet don't hurt at all!!! I'm taking these to Washington DC this summer for a week of walking!
From: Pam, Vero Beach, FLA. 4/10

Comments: I absolutely LOVE these shoes!! They are awesome!! They needed absolutely no break in, which was really nice. I usually get bad blisters from breaking in my shoes, but not these. I was a little worried they were going to be really clunky and hard to move around in, but they are VERY comfortable, and REALLY easy to move around in. I would definitely recommend these shoes to tennis players!!
From: Krissy, Elwood, UT. 4/10

Comments: Awesome shoe. I play 18 hrs a week and these have definitely lasted me the longest out of any shoe I've played with.

Comments: I miss the T20s. This was the best shoe I ever wore. The newer version hits is not comfortable in the portion that hits the width of my foot. Bring back the T20's.
From: Lisa, Los Angeles, CA, USA 01/10
(Please note that the T22 is not a replacement for the T20. This shoe is more similar to the T10. -- TW)

Comments: Still love them! About to order my third pair -- wide platform keeps me from twisting my ankles in quick lateral movements. Plenty of toe room and breathable fabric on top. Sturdy yet lightweight. I do wear a basic Dr. Scholl's insole, due to my flat feet. Prince, PLEASE don't "fix/improve" this model by changing it, or worse yet, discontinuing it!
From: Sandi, Dallas, TX USA. 11/09

Comments: Great shoes! I've worn T10's FOREVER. Well, since I had bunionectomies on both feet. I'm so picky about my shoes it's probably overboard but going through that makes you treat those feet better than gold. I like that they're different and are "just right" lighter than the T10s. I feel the same in not wanting cloud or pink and Prince actually does make some nice T22s that are black and others that have lots of red in them but for some reason are hard to find. Maybe check a local rep?

Comments: The shoes are awesome. I have narrow feet, and these are a touch on the wide side, but they are fine when I really cinch the lases. I agree that they are comfortable right out of the box. Great shoe (4.5 competitive player)
From: Emily, St. Charles, MO, USA. 10/09

Comments: UGH. Clunky and way too warm, I wanted to love these but my feet always hurt the next day after a tough match. Worn maybe 15 times, looking to replace and toss them. Gave me blisters from the heat generated inside and definitely not light on your feet. Lots of play inside the shoe. I have average width and my feet slide around inside, sprained my toe and jammed toenails OUCH!
From: Sandra, Clev, OH. 9/09

Comments: These shoes are very comfortable - lightweight and no break in period AT ALL. I stopped wearing them, though, when I rolled my ankle twice in once match! I went back to my Wilson Tour II - a little clunky but at least they are stable and I can take quick cuts without worry of injuring myself.
From: Janet, IL 09/09

Comments: AWESOME SHOES.... I love these shoes except they caused pain on the ball of my foot due to the width of my foot. I played a sectional tournament 2 matches per day for 4 days and hurt my left foot. I don't blame these shoes but would like to see "wide" or "D" like NB on these shoes. If you don't require wider shoes but are low to medium these shoes are for you. JEALOUS.
From: Quintero L, Temecula. California USA. 9/09

Comments: No break in required and quite comfortable. I found the shoe quite light which is nice when running around the court. Not good for everyday or prolonged play esp. on hard courts (I play 2-3 hours a day sometimes) as the sole isn't as tough and didn't last long. Nice to have in your bag for matches or shorter practice sessions.
From: MM, Boston, MA 09/09

Comments: After reading previous comments I wonder if I have the same shoe. These shoes are heavy and very warm. My knees ache after one set (which is not typical). I've tried for a month to break them in and it isn't working. I wear a size 6 1/2 and wonder if larger sizes are scaled better.
From: Gail, Wisconsin, USA 08/09

Comments: I really love this shoe. I have plantar fasciitis and after I wear them, my feet don't hurt as badly as usual. Really comfortable. I have ankle problems, but I feel great wearing these with my ankle braces. Runs true to size.
From: Lisa, Brookline, NH, USA 08/09

Comments: Switched to this shoe because my others were killing my feet. I love this shoe. It has great cushioning, very little break-in required, and great support. I would recommend it to anyone.
From: Kristie, SC. 7/09

Comments: I bought the Grey/Yellow T-22 last fall because they were dark in color. I get so tired of white and pink women's shoes and I wanted something more aggressive looking. They are very good shoes, especially for the money. I like them as much as my Lacoste Repels, which cost significantly more. The sole has been very durable. The shoe has a lot of cushion and I can play for a couple of hours on hard court before my legs, knees, and ankles get sore and tired (that's really good for me). 3.5 player - 3Xs a week - hard and clay courts.
From: KC, Winston-Salem, NC USA. 6/09

Comments: My favorite shoes. Great support, and they run true to size! I like them much better than the New Balance I have been wearing, so I'll have to get a second pair in case they are discontinued!
From: Meg, Chattanooga, TN, USA. 5/09

Comments: Great shoes. Love them! I used to wear the Adidas Barricades, but they were too heavy. The Prince T22's are SO much lighter & comfortable right out of the box but they do not have great arch support. Lots of compliments on the grey/yellow color. Why doesn't Prince make some more dramatic fun colors in the women's line like they do the men's line? The men get reds and blacks and we usually only get powdery colors or white with the exception of these!
From: Laurie, Charleston, SC, USA. 5/09

Comments: I love these shoes except on clay they don't have the best traction...great stability, comfort.
From: Carolyn, USA. 2/09

Comments: These shoe's are awesome they are extremely comfortable and light weight and have a lot of drag support, which I do a lot of. They are the best shoes for tennis I've had so far.
From: Caitlyn, Norman, Oklahoma, USA. 2/09

Comments: Excellent shoes right out of the box. Nice low to the ground feel let's me get after the ball without worry.
From: Michelle, Pueblo, CO, USA, 11/08

Comments: These are the best shoes I've had in a long time. They are comfortable right out of the box. Great support, great cushioning. Highly recommend!!!
