Classic company has provided a rental style shoe at a very affordable price. These shoes are perfect if you just need a simple pair to take to the bowling alley and do your thing in. They are brand new shoes that are the rental style you would see at a bowling alley.
The shoes run true to size - based on other reviews elsewhere I figured they'd run small, so ordering a 1/2 size bigger was a mistake (that's my problem, not the manufacturers, obviously). The price was decent for brand new bowling shoes, but I now regret not spending the extra to get a nice pair. These are stiff, hurt my ankles where they rub, needed two different kinds of inserts to even make them a possibility to wear (which pretty well negates any savings over having bought the "cheap" shoes), and actually have "rental" written on them - not even the rental shoes at the bowling facility we go to say that! I do definitely regret buying them and plan to upgrade once I've gotten my money's worth out of them.
I wanted something affordable and traditional. I have narrow feet and I find that I can tie them as tight as I need them to be. Any width can fit in these shoes. I got a 1/2 size smaller because they run large and they fit fine. Smooth slide. Only problem is they say rental on them.. No biggie.Karen
These shoes are nice to look at. Unfortunately, they run large. I typically wear a 9.5 in women's. I ordered a 9 based on another site's reviews and they were still too big. I would reccomend at least 1 full size down from your true women's size. Also, one of my shoes was about a half inch bigger than the other. Not big on returning items, but i am sending these back and will try a different brand.
I do not like the word rental on the shows and I would have liked andifferent style womens bowling shoe.
The shoes were as expected.
Shoes are a little stiff, need break in time. I normally wear 7.5-8 depends on the brand; I ordered 7.5 and they're about .5 inch loose. I don'the mind because once I start to bowl, I forget the loose shoes. Love my new shoes. Super fast delivery: ordered Tuesday mid afternoon; arrived Thursday early afyernoon even though the site stated 3-7 days.
I am not an avid bowler, just go randomly with the kids. It was cheaper to buy these than to rent each time
I am a true 7 wide, for years I thought I wore a size 8.5, but I was always wearing standard width shoes. If you have wide feet, go with your true size. If you have narrow feet, I would recommend a smaller size with the True Fit Guarantee, just in case they don't fit.
I love the Classic Style of this shoe. These shoes are true to size if you have a wide foot. I am a true 7 wide. I have been buying 8.5 standards most of my life, but these are very comfortable and affordable.
