Bowling is a game that dates back to ancient Egypt. The most common form of bowling is ten-pin bowling. Ten-pin bowling is usually played on 62 feet of maple and pine that are covered with a synthetic material making the bowling lanes and the area in front of the foul line slick. To protect the floor of a bowling alley and the persons playing, bowling shoes are mandatory. One of the top, if not the number one, brand of bowling shoes is Dexter bowling shoes. Dexter bowling shoes have been around for over fifty years.  Dexter was founded in 1957 and began with making conventional boat shoes. Since this time, Dexter has transformed into making top notch bowling shoes.  The Dexter Bowling Company believes in tradition and this shines in the design of their shoes. Dexter bowling shoes are innovative and constantly being updated using the newest forms of footwear technology. Dexter bowling shoes were the first to have interchangeable sliding soles and breaking heels. This interchangeability allows for varying approach methods when stepping up to the lane.  To be able to bowl correctly, and successfully, the bowlers’ final approach to the foul line requires a short slide along the floor. Dexter bowling shoes come in multiple varieties so that each person can get the right shoe for them. Whether you need more break or more slide, Dexter bowling shoes will accommodate your every need. For the occasional bowler, every bowling alley offers bowling shoes. These shoes are well known for their quirky mismatched colors and unique appearance.  However, the house’s bowling shoes are generic and an avid bowler will most likely purchase their own bowling shoes. If you are interested in buying your own shoes than Dexter bowling shoes are a great choice. Purchasing your own bowling shoes allows you to select the most comfortable shoe from multiple options. Picking out a pair of Dexter bowling shoes is just like picking out sneakers in terms of comfort and style. There are two different types of Dexter bowling shoes: athletic and performance. Athletic shoes are very parallel to sneakers in their design. Athletic Dexter bowling shoes are made with the sliding sole on both shoes. Performance bowling shoes are designed to increase the bowler’s game. Dexter bowling shoes that are made for performance are crafted with only one sliding sole on the lead foot, which is the foot opposite the dominant delivery hand. The other sole is made to have more traction to use as a kind of anchor. Experienced bowlers usually wear performance shoes.
