    Can anyone explain why the listed weight for a shoe is different depending on what website you are looking at? For instance, I've seen the Prince T24 listed anywhere from 15.0 to 16.8, all size 10.5. That's a big difference. How do I know which one is accurate?

    I would bet on the heavier weights posted on Tennis Warehouse. Pretty much match the weight of the T-22.

    You might call TW and ask them if they weigh them themselves or print the specs provided by the manufacturer.

    We weigh them ourselves.

    Some others retailers might weigh just the shoe without the insole and/or laces to cut down more weight. As I thought, TW takes the highest road!
