    My Rebel LS broke. They broke. What?
    After barely over 4 weeks of play the glue that holds the sole to the propulsion plate near the heel has just ripped off. It completely ripped and separated, leaving a chunk out of the shoe's sole. I'll try to post picture, but I'm not sure how. Has this happened to anyone else, with any shoes?

    I've worn out about 10 pairs of Rebels now, and never had an issue. You just got a bad pair sounds like.

    How long do they normally last? I destroyed a pair of fila alfas II in about a month. Will these last about two weeks?

    Yeah, I was surprised because it didn't just sand and wear down. It completely separated.

    To post a picture:

    1. Take picture using digital camera
    2. Post digital photo to a photo sharing site like Photobucket
    3. Post the URL to the photo between "IMG" tags like so:
    [​IMG]

    Interested to see the damage.

    Prince is one of the best company regarding on the warranty so you can bring your shoes to the store which you bought it from or contact/ send your shoes for warranty to prince.

    You have the wrong URL - you're using the URL for the web page. I can tell because the URL has the attributes "action=" and "current="

    Under the share option for each photo, they even give you an option to copy a pre-made URL with an IMG tag like this:

    [​IMG]

    Or a direct URL like this:
    http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg120/jrstriker12/IMG_3725.jpg

    Try like this (see my previous post):

    That's pretty nasty. Contact prince or wherever you bought those. I'm sure that's covered under warranty.

    I had the same issue. I did the same thing to 3 pairs, and a friend of mine did it to 1 pair. Basically, they had an production issue with the earliest batch of shoes. They replaced all 3 pairs (and my friend's) without a problem.

    The fact that you have the Black/Yellow colorway suggests that you might have shoe from an early batch (that colorway was discontinued).

    I still wear the Rebels and have not had the same issue with the replacement pairs. Good luck.
