Final Analysis: Among all of Prince’s shoes, the new T-24 carries the mantle for aggressive players who require outstanding durability and stability. Its new Duraskin XD forefoot bumper is designed for sturdiness and durability for toe draggers, while the 4foot Wrap in the upper makes for a lockdown fit, helping to prevent toe bruising, according to Prince. Moreover, the PRC100 rubber outsole, combined with an arch bridge made from TPU, a hard polymer, adds traction and torsional rigidity. The T-24 was a hit with weartesters of varied ability levels and playing styles who were looking for a shoe stable and comfortable enough to weather regular hard-court play. Because of its heavier weight, the T-24 also makes for a great training shoe—especially when paired with Prince’s lighter Rebel 2 LS for match play.
