This is a shoe for the serious bowler, the SST Tanks prove you take the game seriously. With an interchangeable shoe allowing you to customize the perfect slide every time you bowl. Never worry about the approach again. Slide and switch until you get the perfect feel.
Narrowed it down to these and the sst8. These were hands down the best choice I made,personally I think they look better and do not sit as high as the sst8's. Also I read that the 8s wear on the toe I have played atleast a 100 games on them and no wear problems still have the same slides that came with them. Love that they come with 2 shoe covers and also come with the diffrent heel and slides like the 8s do. If your not into the red on the sst8 but still want all the extras these are the shoe for you, they won't dissapoint
I bowl in two to three houses a week. I love the shoes they work great once you figure out the set up that works for you. IMO thats probably the biggest drawback to these shoes as well as the best reason to purchase them. definately break them in and set them up during practice sessions. Not five minutes before league play. And hang on to your old shoe just in case. You will love them once you get them set up.
Love these bowling shoes I bowl 2 times a week in 2 different bowling bouses and tourneys I can change my sole and my heel depending on which house I'm bowling in.
I think these are better then sst 8's as I tend to drag my toe slightly and I yet to see any wear in the toe. Bottom line if you are a serious bowler get these or set 8 you will not go wrong.
Have always had lower end Dexter shoes. You know, the ones in the $30 range. Never again. These tanks are worth every last dime that they cost. The interchangeable soles are awesome. If you are a heavier guy like my self then you will appreciate the leather heel that comes with these shoes. They are built solid and yes they are heavier than other shoes, but to me that equates to better quality. There is no doubt in my mind that these shoes will last for years to come. They come with 2 different sets of heels and soles and Dexter offers many more to choose from. The shoes come with a chart showing what soles and heels do what in terms of slide and braking.
Nice shoes. Good prices.
