    bought these t10s from TW in april so i'll still have a few months left if it's not enough. strange enough though most of the wear is at the outside sides of the shoe. the outsole seems to be completely gone and its at the part where there is no midsole, just plastic.

    I wouldn't think so. Not even close in my opinion (but I don't know the criteria TW uses).

    I just returned mine with a gaping hole in the right toe (toe drag on the serve). I did receive a credit.

    Are those T22s? Pull the rocks out of the outsole, you'll get better traction.

    I was going to say no, but it does look like you're through to the midsole on the outside of the sole of the shoe, which should qualify for the warranty.

    I recently created a thead regarding on the shoe warranty so when you send your shoes, post your pics and follow up whether you receive it or not. That give us some ideas that shoes will be qualify for the warranty or not.

    Regarding on your shoes..... It's 50-50 because prince company is one of the best company regarding on the shoes warranty so they might give you a replacement shoes. If shoes were Nike or adidas, I probably say "no".

    Do you have any traction problem? If not, you can wear a little more then it will be perfect for the your claim.

    These are t10s not the t22s. The rocks are fairly inevitable cause the parking lot near the courts is filled with them... the traction slips from time to time, but that happens with most of my shoes when I change directions quickly.

    Well they are only 3 months old so I guess I'll just wear them in more and report back to the other thread if I'm able to get a exchange in.

    Yes, that wear on the lateral sides should be enough for warranty replacement.

    I would think that'd be enough. If not, very nearly enough. I'm surprised, too, to see the wear on the outside. Every pair of shoes I've ever owned wears on the inside of the foot much more quickly than the outside--a result of sliding my feet both on hits and during court movement.

    I was surprised too to see where it had worn since I never noticed wear on the outside on any of my other shoes. What I think happened is that I got a really bad blister when I first wore these on my big toe I tried to put more pressure on the outside of my feet. This may also tell me that when I pivot/slide from a sprint I'm for some reason braking with the outside of the foot instead of the balls of my feet. I think the latter reason is because of the first reason.

    Thanks for everyones opinions. I am prolly going to send them in in a week because I bought two pairs for me and my friend and his has almost a hole in his. Since we are departing for different colleges I'm sending them in early since I want to get them back around the beginning of september.
