    HI
    We started carrying these shoes at our store and they are awesome :). I'm generally a Barricade user, but decided to give these shoes a shot. Compared to the other Princes shoes I've tried (T9s, T22s, Optimas), the Rebels are a step in the right direction for Prince.

    Unlike other prince shoes, these did not feel clunky at all. The shoes required no break-in time for me which was a plus. They are a bit narrower then the other prince shoes, but provide that glove-like fit which I really liked. At around 16 oz, they are pretty light but provide great support and stability. The shoes provided good traction, and changing direction wasn't an issue at all. I'm not too sure about the Rebel's durability as I haven't worn them for too long, but it does come with a 6-month outsole warranty.

    I've also used Barricades (3-5), Feathers, CageIs, prince shoes list above, and Head Prestige Pros. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the Rebels (pending Durability: I generally burn through barricade5 every 3-4 months) and definitely recommend these to anyone seeking a great performance tennis shoe.

    You had me until the "a bit narrower" part.

    And the length? True? If I wear an 11 then I would wear an 11 in these pups?
