The DexLite Pro brings together the BOA Disc lacing system you love in high performance shoes, with the Aero Spacer Mesh for a lightweight and comfortable feel! You will love the convenient BOA Fit System to provide a customer fit with the breathability of the mesh material!
I have alway preferred leather for my sporting shoes, but this is Florida and between heat and humidity feet sweat. These shoes are Breathable, well ventilated and the BOA system ensures stability as well as comfort.
I only wish there were an extra slide pad and a shoe protector. Will they last? Time will tell.
I bought these shoes to replace an older pair of Dexter's that lasted me for about 10 years. I definitely wanted to get something with a replaceable slide sole as that seems like a great way to prolong the life of the shoe. There are so many options out there, it's a bit overwhelming. It also didn't help that there were almost no reviews on most of the shoes I was looking at. Hopefully, this review can make someone's life easier.
1) Very Comfortable - I never buy shoes online because I am always afraid that even if they do fit, they won't feel comfortable. I gambled on these shoes and won. Very comfortable and lightweight.
2) BOA Lacing System - At first, I thought this was just a gimmick. My first thought was "what happens when/if the system breaks". I did some research though, and BOA has been doing this with all different types of shoes for years now. Most importantly though, they have a LIFETIME GUARANTEE on their system. This gives me peace of mind, that if for some reason the system ever did break, I wouldn't be without this pair of shoes for long. Overall though, the system works really well and offers you the ability to make the shoes as loose or tight as you want.
3) Practical - They just work. It took me only a few shots in practice to adjust from my old Dexter's to these.
CONS - none
For me, these shoes are great since sliding isn't a huge part of my approach. For someone who is more sensitive to lane tackiness depending on the weather or the house, these shoes may not be the best choice, and it may be wise to spend the extra money for shoes with replaceable soles AND heels. This pair only has the replaceable sole on the slide foot. The heel on the slide foot, as well as the sole/heel on the right foot are non-replaceable.
While I only have thrown with these shoes for a few games, I already like them a lot. They work perfectly with my game. I look forward to being able to wear these shoes for years!
How many interchangeable soles does it comes with7/13/2019 - By Ricky
Which soles work for this shoe!?7/17/2019 - By James
I normally take 10-1/2 for dress shoes, 11 or 11-1/2 for runers. What size should I order for these shoes?9/23/2019 - By Martman
The shoe size question is hard to know unfortunately. This shoe is designed more like an athletic shoe so I would start with that but I would also suggest the True Fit Guarantee option just in case you needed to switch up or down on the shoe after trying it on.9/25/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff

This shoe only has the slide sole that is interchangeable so you cannot change the traction sole out unfortunately. This means that this shoe can only work as a right handed bowling shoe.11/26/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
