Much better than renting shoes for my son!
Bought these for my son to save money and not have to wear overused rental shoes. My 3 yo son loves having his own bowling shoes and they fit as expected. As others mentioned would prefer they didn't say rental on them but since he grows out of shoes so fast we wanted to least expensive pair we could buy. I will probably buy these again next summer in a bigger size for summer bowling program.

Purchased these for my kids. Decent shoe. The only thing is I wish the velcro strap was larger. They don't have wide feet and the velcro part fit small on both of them. Otherwise a good youth shoe.

I ordered my children's shoe sizes and all of them were too small. I suggest buying a size or even 2 bigger than their shoe size. Otherwise they seem like good bowling shoes to use for kids bowl free over the summer.

Perfect for my Lil' Guy
These were perfect for my 4 year old for the perfect price. Beats paying each time we bowl. We go at least once a week! Couldn't ask for a better deal. He lives them!

If it's tight did you take the paper out?
Order one or even 2 sizes higher than their sneaker size. Even if too big stuff it with paper. They won't be doing much walking in them and you get another year out of thwm. I ordered a size up for my 4 year old . At first it was super tight then I noticed brown paper was stuffed inside. They fit fine...they may not last as long as far as her growing as I hoped but I have a younger daughter i can pass them .along to . They are stiff and maybe I will put baseball glove softener on them..but well made

We are going to continue to buy this product as the kids gro
Great product great price we already told people about them. It's best to have your own rental shoes then to rent shoes lol I live with sanitizer and so do my kids and when we saw that they didn't clean the bowling rental shoes we decided that we had to buy our own. As the kids grow we will buy the next size and the next size and the next size thank you bowling.com we are happy!!!

Good Price for Summer Fun
They do the job well. the kids don't seem to mind the stiffness because they're having too much fun bowling and making strikes.

Great cheap shoes
Signed up for free summer bowling for the kids and didn't want to spent a ton on shoe rentals for the summer. Purchasing these for my kids enables us to recoup our rental cost in less than six uses, and being gender neutral enables us to pass them from one kid to the next. They DO say "rental" along the sides, but other than that, a cheap good alternative to renting if your kids will get enough use out of them before they are outgrown. NOTE: Be sure to order a size up, as they run on the small side.

GREAT KIDS BOWLING SHOE!
These are great shoes for kids enjoying the kidsbowlfree.com summer program! Beats paying the $3 shoe rental each time we all play! I bought a pair for myself and they work just as good as any of the rentals in the adult size as well!
By Stutsy from Moses lake, wa
But 3 of these for my kids. Work great and I'm sure my youngest will be able to use all three pairs before I have to give them away. Thanks for the deal.

They have fixed the sizing issue
Disregard reviews to size up. My daughter wears 11 in little kids and we ordered up to a 13 and they are HUGE!!!! I am reordering her normal size.

Ok Shoe, Runs Big
After reading all of the reviews I sized up one size for my kids. Both were too big. I went back to their regular sneaker size and they were still too big. Just sent them back for another smaller size. I don't understand why everyone else thought they ran small.
By Hoa from Chicago, IL
I bought this a size 12 which is a bit big for my 5 years old. But it's a hit or missed as he sometimes wears 11 or 12. Oh well he can wear another year. He loves bowling!

Good kids shoe
I read the reviews, most stating to order a couple sizes larger, so I did. Big mistake! Unfortunately, I didn't select the true fit guarantee, so the shoes are way too big for my kids. Shame on me. They are a good shoe for the price and evens out instead of renting at the lanes. Purchased June 2015, so maybe the manufacturer has fixed their sizing flaw?
