This is a perfect heel for a bowler who needs the least amount of brake. This heel option can be paired with the different slide soles to give you the best sliding options. This is easy to take off with the velcro attachment on the bottom of the heel. You can even do this while your at the bowling alley, it's that easy!
I have had my shoes for the past 7 years and I have replaced the soles and heels maybe 2-3 times, and I bowl alot so therefore I would not expect them to last forever. I will continue to buy these shoes as long as I can find them....
The only other comment about 3G was way off base. I owned a pair of high-end Dyna Thane Dynaroos before they changed to 3G. Had them for 3 years and replaced ONE heel. I have the 3G Ultra Tour now, and after 4 league seasons they look like brand new.
Yes, the heel wears out rather quickly but it's well worth the money to replace it to extend the life of a great pair of shoes.
DO NOT BUY DYNAROO HEELS OR 3G REPLACEMENT HEELS THEY ARE TERRIBLE IAM TRYING TO SAVE UP FOR A PAIR OF DEXTER SST 8, THEY ARE THE BEST SHOES AROUND AND YOU CAN SWITCH THE SOLES AND THE HEELS IN A SECOND. 3G SHOES EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE COMFORTABLE I CANNOT SLIDE IN THESE SHOES AND THATS PART OF MY GAME
