BSI adds a fun feature to their Rental style shoes. Glow stitching! The logo and the size glows in the dark. How fun is that! They also have the traditional leather sole that bowlers like and are very durable.
100% Brushed Leather Rental Shoe
The word "Rental" appears on the sides of the shoe.
Comfortable, Lightweight, Smooth Braking Control, Stability In Approach, Stylish
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I love the fit and design of this shoe/ I only wish that the word Rental was not on the side of the shoe.
Comfortable, Just Like Rentals, Lightweight, Very Colorful
I normally take a size 9 shoe, but found I needed a size smaller in this shoe. I'm hoping they'll improve my bowling scores!!!!
Slippery, Too Stiff
Just what I needed. Very reasonable price! I bought my boyfriend a matching pair, and he loves them.
MY HUSBAND AND I JUST STARTED BOWLING AND HAVE RENTED THEESE AT THE LANES SO DECIDED TO PURCHASE. GREAT PRICE FOR A BEGINNER SHOE, BUT NOTE THAT THE SHOE SIZE RUNS VERY LARGE. I SUGGEST ORDERING TWO SIZES SMALLER THAN YOUR TYPICAL SHOE SIZE.
Started going bowling with the family to get out of the sweltering summer heat. Didn't care for the $5 shoe rental each time we went. We found these shoes and purchased a woman's for me, men's for hubby (which hasn't come yet after a few weeks still =(, and 2 kid boys for my little girls (yes boys since the reviews for the girls indicated sizing issues). These shoes have been great for me and my girls. Not too heavy and comfy enough with thick or thin socks. Not great as far as support, but they do what they need to do for our family bowling trips. We have already more than recouped the cost by saving on the shoe rental fees! Dad is still waiting for his so he can try them out.
my disappointment lies in the fact.that this site has hidden fee's..15% to exchange shoes..and so even though these arent true to size..much bigger. I am just going to keep and wear really thick socks.
Price was reasonable
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Ordered 4 pair of shoes. 3 were the same style and fit great. BSI suede shoes run very small.

Is this a used shoe ?
These shoes and all of our rental style and other bowling shoes are brand new. If we ever sell an "open-box" item we will make it very clear in the title of the product.
Are these shoes blue on both sides?
Yes, that is correct.
Free returns if the size is wrong?
We do not have free returns unfortunately. We do have a True Fit Guarantee which would help you exchange the same shoe model to a different size and it makes that exchange easier, quicker, and cheaper. To see the full benefits of this click the "?" beside the True Fit option.
Do the shoes tend to run small or big in size? In other words, compared to my tire size, should I order up or down a size
It is hard to say how the size will fit compared to other styles and brands of shoes. We would suggest the True Fit Guarantee if you have never tried this brand before which will help you exchange for another size in the same shoe. Click the "?" beside the True Fit to see more details.
How are the half sizes indicated on the back of this shoe? I wore a 9 with a line under it at a bowling alley, and my friend told me the line meant a half size. Is this true for this shoe? Or does it actually say 91/2 on the back? Once I figure out what size I wore, I will order my own to try it!
If the shoe is a half size it will have a line under the number. The whole sizes do not have a line under the number.
Due to the time it takes to produce the BSI Ladies Suede Cosmic Rental Shoe ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
